The final outing of the year took place at Piedmont with great fall weather leading the way. A total of 35 fishermen participated with 30 fish caught. Tim Smith and Rick Simpson got everyone primed Friday night with a kielbasa and seafood boil washed down with an assortment of beverages. The folks at Piedmont Marina put on a very filling breakfast buffet Saturday and Sunday morning and Jerry Rice did a “top chef” quality job on the steaks for the afternoon steak fry. For those of us who didn’t catch any fish, the food was worth the trip. The 30 fish were caught by 14 of the 35 fishermen.
Leading the way with 5 fish was Chuck Land (30″,40″,39.5″,38″ and 37″) total 54.5 points. In 2nd place was Elmer McLure with 4 fish (38″,39″,35″ and 33″) total 41 points. In third place was Paul Anderson also with 4 fish (37.5″,40″,30.5″, and 33.75″) total 37.75 points. Big fish was a tie, with Greg Starkey and Jake Lederer each catching a 43″ fish.
The remaining fish were caught by:Greg Starkey (43″,30″,35″, and 31″) Gloria Roberts ( 37.5″ and 36″) Douglas Reed (39.5″ and 40″) Jake Lederer (39″ and 43″) Jerry Rice (30″) Ray Elkins (32″) David Baio (36″) Anna Land (31.5″) Tim Smith (36″) Phil Cummings (40.5″) Matt Clark (40″).

2011 OHMC Fall Outing Results by OHMC 2nd Vice President Paul Anderson
The 2011 OHMC Fall Outing was held at Piedmont Lake on September 17th and 18th, 2011. There were 42 contestants entered and they caught 18 fish.
Results from the OHMC 2011 Nite-Bite by OHMC 2nd Vice President Paul Anderson
The annual OHMC Nite-Bite was held August 6th and 7th, 2011 at Leesville Lake. Twenty three (23) anglers registered for the event and attempted to tame the beast. Registration was held at the South ramp from 5:00 to 6:00 Saturday evening. Fishing started at 6:00 on a warm humid Ohio evening. Water temperatures were in the upper eighty’s and the wind was calm to very light. Although the threat of rain showers or thunderstorms was present throughout the event, the worst of the storms in the area avoided our fishing time.
The 2011 OHMC Open Summer Contest was held on July 9 & 10 at Alum Creek Reservoir in Delaware, Ohio. We started the day off with a pancake breakfast at registration. All food and time for this was donated by Paul Anderson OHMC 2nd Vice President. This was held as a fundraiser for the club’s donation to the minnow fund. Thanks Paul! Paul said he will do this again at the Fall Outing to be held at Piedmont Lake. CONTINUE READING »
