Harrelson wins June Toho One Man Elite tourney.


The Toho Marine Wednesday Night Shootout on June 7 was won by none other than the duo of Mark Lundgren and Charlie Harrelson.

With a five-fish limit, they secured their third win of the season with 20.58 pounds anchored by Charlie’s 6.86-pound big bass of the night. He is currently in the lead for the Denali Rod giveaway for the month of June. In second place with 18.75 pounds were Shelton Smith and Steve, followed by Geo and Eric with 16.52 pounds for third place. Thirteen teams participated.

These open tournaments run every Wednesday night out of the Kissimmee Lakefront Marina, rain or shine! The last two Wednesdays the sky fell out early in the day, possibly scaring off contestants. But both evenings turned out beautiful.

Entry fees are $30 per boat . Just sign up at the ramp. Launch is 5 p.m. sharp with the weigh-in concluding around 8:45 p.m.

This month the Toho Marine Elite One Man Series competed on Lake Kissimmee out of Joe Overstreet ramp. Going home with the prize money and his first win was Charlie Harrelson with a 25.46-pound sac. He locked in his win with 5 pounds over second place winner Jason Kitchens. Kitchens had 20.35 pounds. In third place was your current points leader, Mark Lundgren with 19.49 pounds. Pulling off a fourth place finish was Rodney Glunt with 19.18 pounds and rounding out the top 5 was Jerry Porter with 18.39 pounds. Twenty-nine anglers participated in the event.

Rich Mills had the big fish of the tournament , a near tophy-size 7.71 pounder. His nice catch landed him a $350 check and a brand new Phenom Rod courtesy of Enigma Fishing.

After points were totaled for this event, Mark Lundgren is still the points leader and Charlie Harrelson’s win moved him from ninth place all the way up to second. Right there on Marks tail! Sitting in the third is Rodney Glunt. The next One Man is July 1 out of Scott Driver Park on Lake Okeechobee.

… Space Coast Report with Captain Brian Pounds of Southern Fishing Charters: Brian tells me that the Southern Mosquito Lagoon is awesome!! The lagoon is full of mullet pods and that means trout, reds and tarpon! Look for the pods that are hundreds of yards wide and long. Cut baits, Mirrolure Lil Johns and gulp shrimp are all getting it done. Of course with the storms, it’s early in and early out! A 5:45 a.m. start is best and the bite is shutting down around 11 a.m.
