The last few months have been tough on the Kissimmee Chain for many anglers fishing fast while offshore. With the rains bringing up the water level to normal pool there is a lot of current in the diversion canals from East Lake Toho, down to the Kissimmee River between Hatchineha and Kissimmee where there is a good current moving. I won an Extreme Bass Series during current being pushed south last year in the Kissimmee River and had a limit in less than 5 minutes and had the winning weight by 8 am, so when the current is flowing you might want to check it out.
Joe Ventrello, Jr and Danny Lanier won the Toho Team Tournament Trail Classic this past Sunday Sept, 11th 2011 with around 24 pounds and Steve “Boogie” Brown got 3rd with just under 18 pounds. So the bite was good and Toho is still producing nice quality fish. Me and Jeremy “JP” Prouty finished 11th overall. I did not have time to put in practice for the event so I shouldn’t have deserved a win anyways but still managed to put a limit and a few culls out of the boat plus I won a Navionics Chip and a $25.00 giftcard. In the points this year JP and I finished 3rd with a 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 12th, 13th and 14th finish. Our biggest 5 went 25 pounds when we got 2nd place in March. Overall this year on Toho has been pretty good and so has the fishing.

NOW THE SALTWATER REPORT: Offshore a lot of keeper sea bass have been caught, but my favorite is the giant Mangrove (Grey Snapper) we were catching 25 miles out. On the flats, he North end of the Indian River has been producing a lot of quality sized Redfish and some nice sized trout. The Peacocks Pocket area for the most part has been slow and muddy but it has cleared up and is getting hotter as October approaches. Down toward Sebastian Inlet you will be shoulder to shoulder while Snook season is in effect and there are also Flouder caught from time to time, I caught a nice 24 inch Flounder 2 weeks ago on a live Mojara. In the flats the key baits have been Berkley Gulp Shrimp in Molting color and Skippy Fish jerk shads that I was introduced to by Blaine Partee of Bass Feeding Frenzy Fishing Adventures. The way that we were working the lures was slow almost a dead stick to a slow crawl to get bites and you will catch 5 or 6 Reds and they are gone so keep moving and casting and keep an eye out for tails and stay quiet! You will have a blast!
