It is time to prepare for our 45th annual open summer contest to be held at Piedmont Lake, Piedmont, Ohio on July 11th and 12th, 2015. Registration will be held at the marina parking lot. Registration will be open on Friday, July 10th from 7:00 PM until 8:00 PM and will resume on Saturday, July 11th from 7:00 AM to 8:00 AM. We will also have registration on Sunday as-needed.

There will be trophies awarded for the top three places for fish released. Remember, our awards are based on a point system (4 points for the first 30” with a point for each additional inch). Each boat will be given a boat packet containing contest information, PLEASE READ THE CONTEST RULES CAREFULLY.
Each angler who registers will be given a ticket at registration for the door prizes that will be drawn at the event conclusion. The award ceremony and the Grand Prize drawing will start at 3:00 PM sharp after fishing closes on Sunday, at the old marina. You will need a raffle ticket to participate in the drawings. The last few times we were at Piedmont we have enjoyed some great fishing and fantastic camaraderie.
We again this year have many other raffle prizes and door prizes such as rods and reels, and gift certificates. We will be auctioning some custom built one-of-a-kind baits . Winner of the grand prize drawing need NOT be present to win. For all other drawings the winner must be present.
