REGISTRATION & RULES
We take rules and regulations very seriously and reserve the right to refuse registration. Please review the following list of rules and regulations carefully to remain eligible to WIN!
Only 1 fish per participant is allowed to be weighed/registered at any one time. You can register multiple fish but at different times. Fish will be weighed and measured to the nearest 1/4th inch. The winning fish will be by weight, with length used as a tiebreaker. Each subsequent fish registered supersedes any previous fish. Fish must be legally caught in accordance to Ohio laws. All fish must be caught by a registered participant.
The participant weighing the fish, owns and is fully responsible for that fish. All participants must have a valid fishing license if required by the state of Ohio. If fishing from a boat, only registered participants may be on board. Boats must be legally registered and equipped with all required equipment and safety devices in accordance with Ohio laws.
