    Had a good trip. Lot's of 5-6 lb fish, couple of 7lb and a couple of 8lb+, and one TOAD! 11lb 6 3/4 oz
    26 5/8" long and 18 7/8 girth.
    Didn't have a fish under 3lb this trip for some reason. Couple of the fish had HUGE heads and small bodies, kinda like they were starving and loosing body mass. It was sure weird looking. one of the 8's had a head that was as big as the 11lb'er, but body was narrow, short, and lean.

    Green Shad Chatterbait caught lots of fish. live bait was plentiful, but way expensive!!
    We fished the pad pockets that had what I call "Fern Grass" about 2' below the surface. Find that kind of stuff and the fish are there!!!
    Hope you have a safe trip.

    Bait

    Big Girl was caught on a wild shiner. We didn't do much LB fishing, but what we did do was exciting and fun!!!
    If you have not been yet, don't rule out fishing Cypress. The right side after you get in from the channel. Find the deeper edge with grass barely visible under the surface. Chatterbait right above, and occasionally in this, will get you some guality fish!

    The right side coming from Kissimmee up the canal. I remember a big stand of bulrushes in that area as you get in Cypress out of the canal.
    I don't have a Green Shad Chatterbait but I do have other colors that may work. Was a certain part of Kissimmee better than the other?

    Kissimmee

    Straight out of river toward the area called "school bus" on the local map. Fish the small open areas close to the thickest mats you can find. I'm sure other colors will work, just looked like the green shad was darker than the others I had, except for the black/blue, but I didn't try that one.
    In Cypress, I don't recall any bullrush, but the lake you go thru to get to Cypress (Hychenthia?)has lots of that. We were out from the bank some tho, so there might be some there.
