Meet Your Captain: Captain Lu Rodas
Captain Lu Rodas has made The Rebel Soul an extension of himself. The ocean is his temple and playground.
For Captain Lu, fishing is part of who he is. Since he was 13, he has been competing in local surf competitions and rigging bait on the head of fishing boats. After highschool, Captain Lu enlisted in the US Navy where he trained and served as a Damage Control man (firefighter) and a SAR (search and rescue) swimmer.
After completing his commitment of service in 2000, Captain Lu returned to South Florida and became a USCG master licensed captain. Now, he continues to pursue his passion of the ocean with The Rebel Soul. His work doesn’t end off this luxury yacht though.
“Fishing is my passion and getting our clients into fishing is so rewarding to me. I hope you join us on this amazing adventure.”
Captain Lu is the president of the Trespass Surf Club where he organizes monthly meetings, beach cleanups, tournaments, and advocates for the beaches. His passion for the ocean has led him to organize and found the Surfrider Foundation Broward County Charter and the Surfer for Autism organization. This nonprofit enables autistic children and their families to spend the day surfing.
In addition to his humanitarian efforts, Captain Lu has spearheaded and been involved in some amazing fishing television shows. In Classic and Classy Sportfishing Adventures, Captain Lu demonstrates saltwater fishing tips and techniques for landing a top, trophy worth catch. He also discusses how to maintain a boat – a classic 52’ Buddy Davis Sportfish.
He doesn’t just talk the talk. Captain Lu was also involved in a 3-year competitive fishing tournament throughout South Florida, the Florida Keys, and the Bahamas.
Captain Lu and his crew are fun, professional, prepared and were the absolute highlight of our trip. They know every nook and cranny of deep waters and went above and beyond in every aspect of our day.Jeannie
