September 8, 2018 – Lake Okeechobee/Southport
A field of 33 anglers set out Saturday morning for the 8th Toho Marine Elite One Man Series Tournament of the season. A summer storm came up on the lake just in time for everyone’s return to the Southport Ramp for the weigh-in, causing a delay and everyone to move the activities under a pavilion. 19 anglers caught a limit while others didn’t bring in anything. First Place went to Mr. Wayne Yohn throwing a 24.33 pound sack on the scales earning him a check for $1088. Second went to Charlie Harrelson having just under a pound less than Wayne with 23.32 pounds. Charlie took home $435. In Third place was Tim Snellings who caught 22.86 pounds. He walked away with $326. Fourth Place was Jerry Darter, Fifth was Paul Hanley and first spot out of the money and winner of the Enigma Fishing Rod was Jason Hughey. The BIG Bass winner was Mr. Joe Clements who landed himself a 9.17 pound DONKEY and Trophy Catch Florida qualifier!! Jerry Darter had second BIG fish with another qualifier of 8.88 pounds.
There was a little shuffling at the top of the point’s leaderboard as some anglers struggled to figure out the fish in the late summer heat. Charlie Harrelson has moved into the Top Spot for Angler of the Year passing Logan Murphy by just 3 points with one tournament left to go!
The final One Man Qualifier before the Championship on Okeechobee is SUNDAY, October 21st out of Camp Mack on Lake Kissimmee. Just a reminder but you must have fished 7 out of the 9 Qualifiers, OR be in the Top 35 in Points to be guaranteed entry into the Championship.
