James and Shirley Rishel from North Carolina fished with me for a 8 hour trip on a recent trip down to Florida. This was there first time fishing with us here on the Big “O”, however, they have fished Lake Okeechobee with other guides in the past. I know that without a doubt they will be coming back to fish with us for now on, as they were very appreciative for how well they were treated versus previous trips.

Shirley landed several big fish throughout the day with the biggest one being right at the 8 lb mark. James didn’t catch the biggest of the day but he did manage to catch a bunch of fish and mixed in a few fish in the 4-7 lb range. It was a great day here on Lake Okeechobee, we went through 12 dozen shiners and caught close to 100 fish. Lot’s of small fish in the 1-2 lb range but we probably caught close to 20 over 3 lbs.

Book a trip with us and let us show you why we are different then any other guide service on Lake Okeechobee. Every client is treated like family with great customer service and every single guide will do everything they can to assure a fun and successful trip.

Check out a few photos from the trip. We had a big alligator pop up next to the boat.
