My name is Ryan Hathaway, I am a lifetime resident of Okeechobee. I grew up living on the water in Treasure Island fishing local waters almost every day enjoying my true passion. I spent thousands of hours growing up using live bait catching large fish on the north end of Lake Okeechobee. As the need for more challenges arise, I began using artificial baits and light tackle. Over time I have learned the seasonal behavior of bass, crappie, and shell cracker. I also enjoy escaping to remote areas and fishing fish in areas less traveled. Fishing in Florida’s natural state surrounded by herons, gators, and ducks makes you take in what Okeechobee was like hundreds of years ago.
My name is Larry Crossman. Licensed U.S.C.G. Captain. I’ve been fishing Lake Okeechobee for over 35 years. I was born and raised in South Florida. Been in South Florida all my life. Probably my greatest accomplishment in bass fishing is winning the first Red Man Pro-Am ever held and also the Florida State Division Champion. I have fished over 250 tournaments. Lost count of how many I have won, but lost a lot more. That’s fishing. I have two boats. So if you need a one – four party trip, I’ve got the boat.

My name is Captain Chase Marsocci and I have been fishing competitively for 8 years now. I was born and raised in Okeechobee and have been fishing the lake my entire life. I enjoy power fishing, flipping and pitching jigs/creature baits, although nothing is better than shiner fishing to catch these monster bass that Lake Okeechobee has to offer. I currently fish several local tournament trails. On average I am on the lake 3-7 days a week allowing me to stay on fish year around. I also enjoy crappie, blue gill and shell cracker fishing. I am currently a co-owner of Fast Break Bait and Tackle. Fishing is my true passion and I could not imagine a better place to live.
