Born and raised in Baton Rouge, Captain Lance has been on the water since he was a young boy. His love of fishing, and being outside, saw him become a boat deckhand at the age of 15 and a captain at the age of 19. He has since worked for many well-known captains, and has been running offshore charters for over 15 years, and his own company for over 10 years. He has worked hard to build a reputable and well-respected business all over the Gulf Coast. He will always put 100% in to every trip he runs.
