The first OHMC event of 2023 will be the Icebreaker at Salt Fork Lake on Saturday, March 25th.  If all goes well, we will not actually have to break ice to get to open water.  April 2022, ODNR performed an electroshock survey and recorded a 57” monster, as well as a 53” beast! One of these two fish might just be your next personal best Muskie. If helping to contribute to the Minnow Fund isn’t enough of an incentive to come join us, then landing one of these giants will be.

The is a single day event which will run from 7:00 am to 5:30 pm, Saturday.  The winning fish must be at least 30 inches or greater.  The 1st place winner and any ties will receive trophies at our 2024 Banquet.  All fish must be turned into the Tournament Director by 6:30 pm at the Old Marina Boat Launch parking lot or via the cell phone number provided the night before the event.
