Captain Ryan Eckman

  (19 years experience)


RLE Big Fish Adventures


Okeechobee, FL

RLE Big Fish Adventures is a fishing charter that takes you around Lake Okeechobee. Guiding you through the lake is Captain Ryan Eckman. Other than his 18-year fishing experience he also competes at FLW professional bass fishing tours. He’s a professional by every right and will guide you with patience no matter what skill level.

Cruise around the calm waters of the Okeechobee lake in Captain Ryan’s Big O motorboat. It comes with an icebox as guests are free to bring their snacks and drinks. With the Big O’s 65 mph engine as well as its advanced fishfinding navigational system, you’ll get to the best fishing spots in no time at all. 

Catch the greatest prize in the lake, the largemouth bass, using an assortment of professional equipment like rods, reels, and tackles. All equipment will be provided by the captain. Do note that largemouth bass tends to fight hard but don’t worry, with Captain Ryan’s fighting chair installed on the boat, you might just snag the biggest fish of the day.

So come on down to Okeechobee Lake and catch the largemouth bass with Captain Ryan and RLE Big Fish Adventures.
