ABOUT LANCE THOMAS: Slangmagic was founded by Lance Thomas, Duke University graduate and NBA veteran. Lance was introduced to the sport of fishing by his best friend Kenjuan Nichols while attending Duke University. Since then, his love of fishing has grown from ponds and lakes to the saltwater of the Gulf of Mexico. He has been an avid angler for over 10 years, moving into the offshore circuit five years ago. He is also one of the youngest pro-athletes on record to obtain his OUPV and Master 100 Gross Ton Sea Captain’s license. Lance has cast a wide net, morphing his natural-born competitiveness into an ambitious team of skilled offshore fishermen and a unique fishing brand comprised of clothing, gear, charity events, and young ambassadors to create: Slangmagic.
