Although I’m one of the youngest guides on the lake, I have a lifetime of experience. I was born on the water or, rather, born for it. Like many other Florida Natives, my first love was fishing– and all things related. I began working on fishing boats at age 14. By age 19, I was a licensed USCG Captain.
As I got older, I dove in deeper. I joined the freshwater tournament scene about 4 years ago. I’m currently competing in the American Bass Association Tournament Trail, the FLW Tournament Trail, and several local tournament series. My tournament angling career has afforded me many opportunities, including sponsorships from M’n’M Marine, Bonner Mobile Bar, Vivid salon, Treasure Coast Boat Rentals, White’s tackle, Premium Frequency Audio, and Fast Break Bait & Tackle; all of which I am deeply grateful for.
My specialty and favorite kind of fishing is artificial, bass. I fish the waters 3-4 days a week, angling fish that many dream of. One of the accomplishments I am most proud of is purchasing my first boat, which is an 18 foot Sterling flats boat– Of which, I currently operate on. My boat can comfortably accommodate 2 anglers per trip. So, let me share my experience and joy of fishing with you! You may just get hooked for life!

Kyle started fishing with the Big “O” Teen Anglers’ inc. at age eleven, and has since moved on to fish the BFL, Costa Series, College Fishing and FLW tour.

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 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.
