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 1/8th 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.
