About the Captain

Peter Rans
Somerset, Bermuda
Member since April 2016
Captain Peter started his professional fishing career aboard the original 31ft JC ‘Overproof’. Although it was a smaller boat, Capt Peter was able to compete with larger fishing boats around Bermuda. Over the years he has placed well in a range of tournaments, and in 2002, he caught the largest Blue Marlin (906lbs) and the largest Wahoo (102lbs) of the season. Aboard the current and larger ‘Overproof’, Capt Peter reeled in a 641lbs for the 2014 Blue Marlin World Cup - unfortunately it was under 30lbs shy of winning.
