A recognizable face, as #42 on the New York Knicks, Lance Thomas has been an avid angler for over 10 years, moving into the offshore circuit five years ago. A true story of a 6’8” kid from Brooklyn who, once upon a time, could have never dreamt that fishing would become his favorite pastime has now been able to accomplish catching a 183-pound yellowfin tuna, and is 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.
SlangMagic Fishing Team
When you’re fishing, it doesn’t matter how tall you are or how much you weigh. And, your age social status and gender are of no importance. The SlangMagic Fishing team is currently comprised of 8 members hailing from everywhere in the US: major cities, rural areas and abroad. SlangMagic is just as much of a family unit as they are a team. Since the inception of this diverse team in 2017, the SlangMagic fishing team first competed in the Faux Pas Rodeo in Venice, Louisiana and won their division with a trophy Mahi-Mahi. SlangMagic is currently working towards big wins at the 2018 Billfish tournaments.
