Battle for Ohio | All Ohio Waters June 7-9

Are you ready to BATTLE in the OHMC’s first ever ONLINE Muskie Tournament!?  The BATTLE FOR OHIO online event takes place Friday, June 7th through Sunday June 9th.  This event is open to ALL, and ALL WATER in OHIO is eligible.

So how does this statewide online tournament work exactly?  Beginning at 3 PM on Friday June 7, all the way through 9 PM on Sunday June 9, you may choose ANY one, or multiple bodies of water in OHIO to fish from.  In this weekend-long points tournament, your TOP FIVE muskies submitted, 30″ or longer, will earn you points.  Submit every muskie you catch, 30″ or better, and we will apply your best FIVE to your final score.  Fish must be photographed on a bump board with identifier code clearly visible, and then submitted to tournament director (TD) via text no later than 9:30 PM on Sunday night.  The identifier code, and TD text number will be released on Friday before the start of legal fishing.

So, join in the statewide BATTLE to see how you fare against the other muskie anglers all across OHIO!  Portions of the proceeds donated to the Minnow Fund to help support the cost of stocking muskies in Ohio.

Winners will be announced Monday morning after all fish submissions are reviewed and scored by our judges.  All top three anglers with the most points at the end of legal fishing time will be awarded trophies and brand new muskie baits at our awards banquet.


The entry fee will be $25 with no big fish entry pool.  Proceeds of this event will help fund the OHMC’s contribution to the Minnow Fund.
