Captain Chance Praytor started fishing when he was 5 years old and since then he's fallen in love with the “suspense of not knowing what’s on the other end of your line!” He’s worked on charters for 7 years and genuinely enjoys seeing people have fun and making them smile after an awesome experience. He got his captain’s license in 2016 and began running his own charter service in 2018. Capt. Chance’s customers can all agree that he is a friendly, patient, and helpful guide. He will provide as much assistance as you need and no matter what, he guarantees you’ll have an incredible time!
