My name is Jake from Southern California by way of American Samoa. I’ve traveled alot of Asia and the Pacific but found home here in Maui the moment I set foot in Lahaina Harbor.
Humble Beginings – being raised by a very extended and cultured Samoan family it meant everything to live within your means. That translated into alot of banana trees in our backyard. Didn’t work out well in the southern California climate like it did in Samoa yet grandpa never stopped trying. We get what the land gives us and this current lesson of my life is taking what the ocean gives me. I’ve been led to this beautiful ocean whether I knew it or not and the fishing has kept me.
While meeting some of the most nurturing people and planting roots on this island I’ve found a growing love for fishing I never knew. By working hard, learning fast, and most of all smiling through it, I’ve landed here with LikeTry Charters yanking up fish and scrubbing bloody decks!
It’s been quite an opportunity and learning experience from the seasoned crew and captains I have at my side. My journey is just getting started and I would love for you to be a part of our story!
