Luke Dickens

Line Fisher
Monique

Luke started fishing as a young boy around the age of 4/5 with his family. He owned a boat before a car.  To the horror of his mum he used to borrow her Holden Gemini to beach launch his boat when he was just a ‘rec’ (recreational) fisher (where everyone else around him are using 4WDs).

Luke did a carpentry trade and later a unit development which helped get the finances to the purchase of the fishing business & boat in 2005.  In 2014 Luke purchased the Woolgoolga Marine Rescue boat, built by local built builder & Co-op member John Wait (he still does maintenance on the locals boats and around the Co-op) and later named the vessel Monique after his lovely wife Monique (who he has two girls with Lucy & Alice). The rescue boat was converted into a Commercial fishing vessel that he still uses today.

As a commercial fishermen he primarily chases Kingfish and other seasonal fish. Luke recently started to Iki Jimi all Kingfish & Mahi Mahi to improve quality. He primarily fishes around the Solitary Islands.

Luke has learnt from both past & present fishermen at the Coop.

  • My wife and I ordered grilled swordfish. It took some time until it was done, but then we each got a nicely grilled piece about the size of a T Bone steak. Our daughter liked the salad. It might not be the place for a formal dinner but if you are hungry for fish at a reasonable price it’s certainly worth going there.

  • The fisherman’s co-op is your one stop shop for both a tasty seafood lunch and to purchase fresh seafood for dinner. Highly recommended the fisherman’s basket for two, it was easily enough to fill both our bellies. We then purchased a fresh kilo of prawns to take home.

  • Heaps of choice of fresh fish to cook at home. We got the $35 family basket – nice variety, plenty to eat, fast service, great taste. A good way to end a day out in the town before heading home again.

    “Great location, great fish. great choice”

  • Service at the Co-Op is friendly and helpful and the fish is MAGNIFICENTLY FRESH. If you have a special occasion coming up, the cooked lobster is absolutely delicious.
