The time has finally come to dust off those rods and reels and get back to chasing some muskies!  We will kick off our 2024 tournament season with the Icebreaker at Leesville Lake on Saturday March 23rd.  Plenty of anglers have taken advantage of the very mild Winter and landed some real monsters already, including on Leesville!  Hopefully that trend continues and we see decent weather and plenty of action as we come together to raise some money to be put towards the Minnow Fund.  Help us kick this season off right and come join us for a fun day on one of Ohio’s top producing musky lakes.


South Fork Marina has generously offered to host us once again for our fish check-in and will have some dinner available to us.  OHMC will provide each tournament-registered angler with a $5 credit towards any food purchase.  So, please join us and support our awesome sponsor, South Fork Marina, for a hot meal and to share some fish stories as we also present the tournament winners with their trophies.


This is a single day points tournament, (with an optional Big Fish side pot), which will run from 7:30 am to 5:00 pm, Saturday.  All catch entries must be photographed on a bump board with the assigned identifier code visible and turned into the Tournament Director (TD) by 5:30 pm at the South Fork Marina, or via the TD cell phone number(s) that is provided. Any fish must measure at least 30” to be submitted.  Scoring in this points system awards 4 points for a 30” fish plus 1 additional point is given for every inch over 30”.   For example, a 42.5” fish would earn 4 points plus 12.5 points for a total of 16.5 points.  The winner will be the highest total points for the day.  First, second, and third place will receive trophies at the check-in.

Point System Rules and Regulations


New for 2024 and going forward:

  • All in-person event plaques will now be given to the winner at the designated in-person fish “weigh-in” location. If any angler receiving a plaque is unable to make it to the “weigh-in” location, it is that angler’s responsibility to pick it up at a later date.  Plaques will not be mailed out going forward. Plaques will be forfeited after the following year’s banquet.
