The youngest captain in the Landry Armada, Chase has been handed captain duties for the last two seasons of Swamp People. The son of legendary swamper Troy Landry, Chase has been hunting gators ever since he was a child. Not alone in the family business, Chase is accompanied by his brother Jacob Landry and his father Troy Landry who captain their respective boats to fill in the tags. While Chase was accompanied by his cousin Holdem up until the 10th season, the 11th season saw Chase depart on his own to the swamp. In this article, we will take a closer look at the wiki-bio of Chase Landry.
Chase Landry was born on the 25th of April 1989, in Pierre Part, Louisiana. Born to Bernita and Troy Landry, Chase is the youngest son of the pair and is preceded by a brother, Jacob Landry, and step-brother, Brandon Hotard. Born and raised in a family of shrimpers, trappers, fishermen, moss peddlers, lumberjacks, and hunters, it was only natural for Chase to take up the family mantle in gator hunting. His path was made even easier by his brother, Jacob Landry, who mentored Chase along the way. Chase followed his father from a young age and started learning about hunting both crawfish and gators.
When Troy was offered a chance to star in the reality TV series, Swamp People, he took both of his sons to the party. While Jacob has made regular appearances in the series from the very first season, Chase did not join the series right from the get-go. He joined the cast on the third season of the show and began working as a deckhand on his brother’s ship. However, as the number of gators grew, Troy took on a massive number of tags and had to split it between his sons. Troy captained Chase and Chase began gator hunting on his own. He was joined by his cousin Holden Landry for the fifth and sixth seasons of the show. Holden left the show for the seventh season but returned for two more seasons. The 11th season saw, Chase set off to the swamp without his cousin by his side.
