The first OHMC event of 2021 will be the Icebreaker at Piedmont on Saturday, March 27th. If all goes well, we will not actually have to break ice to get to open water. This time of year is prime for giants staging for the spawn. This one-day tournament is a big fish tournament with the winner catching the longest fish of the day.
The event will begin at 7:30 am on Saturday and concludes at 5 pm. The winning fish must be at least 30 inches or greater. The 1st place winner and any ties will receive trophies at our 2022 Banquet. All fish must be turned into the Tournament Director by 5:30 pm at the Piedmont Marina parking lot. Once registered, you can launch at the Marina or at Reynolds road.
The campground at Piedmont will be open for those who want to make a weekend of the event. The bathroom, shower room and laundry are open year-round. There may or may not be water directly to a campsite, we will not know until closer to the event. Here is the site to make a reservation:
