OGF is proud to present FISH OGF, our Big Fish Awards program! Designed as a collective effort between OGF members and staff, this program aims to recognize OGF members who've caught big fish around the state, while providing an informational resource to our online angling community.
We've broken the program into 5 regions around the state (as seen in the qualifying lengths chart below) to provide anglers all over the state with various access to fishing grounds an equal opportunity to get recognized for their big fish. This is a fun "bragging rights" program developed to showcase our members and their awesome catches!
The rules are simple! Catch a fish in Ohio that meets the qualifying length of the species/region listed in the chart below, upload a photo of your catch to your OGF picture gallery, and fill out the submission form with the listed details. There is no limit to the fish you can enter, and members who submit qualifying catches will be rewarded with custom medals in their profile, as well as permanent listings in our Fish OGF awards list
on the site.
How to Enter Your Catch
1. Upload a picture of your qualifying catch to your OGF photo gallery
2. Click the Request an Award link
in the region and species to which you are applying , with the following format/details: Size (in inches), Location (body of water), Date (date caught). For example, Size: 30" Location: Alum Creek Date:11/1/11
3. You must include a link to the photo of your qualifying catch with your form submission!
*All fish must be caught in Ohio, no earlier than 1/1/11
*All photos must be uploaded to OGF's photo gallery
*OGF reserves the right to void or remove any awards at any time
*Incomplete or false submissions will not be considered
This program is meant to be a fun way to recognize our members as well as provide accurate catch information for big fish around Ohio. Although we can't physically verify the validity of submissions, we will do our best based on the information and picutures provided. It's an honor system that we hope everyone supports, to ensure the credibility of the progam as well as the individual member.
(Special thanks to OGF members Net and Mushijobah for getting this program off the ground!)
