Toho Marine Elite One Man Series – June 10th, 2017 – Lake Kissimmee – Joe Overstreet Boat Ramp
The 5th Toho Marine Elite One Man Tournament of the 2017 Season launched from Joe Overstreet Boat Ramp on June 10th – This tournament was originally scheduled to be held out of Camp Mack, but due to the continued low water levels the decision was made to move the tournament. The weather forecast was pretty much the same as the previous 2 weeks – a lot of rain. 39 boats headed out into the early morning cloud cover. Some had hopes of winning, some were just hoping to hold on to their hard earned positions in the points for the year, and others that had expressed their frustrations at the ramp were just hoping to be able to bring a limit to the scales.
The weather turned out to be a little better than the fishing for most, the rain held off for the most part until shortly before weigh in, with minimal rain and only short periods of high winds. Out of 39 boats, only 2 managed to break the 20 lb. mark, while 8 boats did not bring a single fish to the scales. In the end it was local legend Charlie “Peaches” Harrelson managed to best the entire field with over a 5lb margin of victory with his 25.46 lb. sack of Lake Kissimmee Bass.
Charlie Harrelston comes in 1st with a 25.46 lb bag!
This was Charlie’s first win of the season and not only landed him a nice paycheck, but some much needed points for the A.O.Y. Race as well!
Jason Kitchens persevered through a tough day and weighed in his 5 fish limit of 20.35 lbs. just before having to go work on rescuing his dad’s boat that was stuck in the mud. In 3rd was Mark Lundgren with 19.49 lbs. Although Mark has not managed a win yet this year, his consistency has been paying off. Not only has Mark cashed a check in 4 out of 5 Tournaments this year, he is also leading the points for the A.O.Y. race with almost a 20 point lead!
Rounding out the Top 5 was Rodney Glunt in 4th with 18.68 lbs., and Jerry Porter in 5th with 18.39 lbs.
Jerry Porter comes in 5th
Rich Mills got Big Fish and the Enigma rod!
Rich Mills had the Big Fish of the Tournament with a 7.71 lb. Piggy, and also was fortunate enough to win a Rod from Enigma Fishing for being “first out of the money” for total weight! 2nd Big Fish of the Tournament went to Mike Hoffman with a 6.87 lb. Beauty.
After the weigh in was all done and checks handed out we still had the raffle for everyone who entered the tournament. With Great Sponsors like TH Marine, Ardent Fishing, Mercury, Motorguide, Bob’s Machine and Enigma Rods we are able to give away some great prizes every tournament.
The next tournament is July 1st on Lake Okeechobee, launching from Scott Driver Park! Hope everyone had a blast and we look forward to seeing you next month!
