Isn't the lake going to be about 5-6' down by that time? Are the docks still going to be in?
Plus, that's the second w/e of waterfowl season, with 20 some permanent blinds on the lake and only one ramp open.

How many muskies were reported caught?!?! Winning weights seem to be a trend lately around central Ohio, pretty sad representation of the bass fisheries imo.

I am not surprised that someone caught a 4.5lb bass! Or even a 7.5lb saugeye? This report of a possible 53" Muskie being one of the few caught this weekend has me wondering. Can anyone verify a 50+ inch fish was caught and measured during this tourney? Here is a report from ramp after the Open:

First off , I would like to thank Boat boys for supporting us this season. They provided us with our plaques for our classic as well as tons of awesome door prizes this season. They really support anglers in our area with not only great deals on boats but also top notch service. I would also like to thank everyone who came out to participate as well and lets not forget those who came out to watch the weigh in. It was so great to see some folks that I have not saw in a while. The weather was not bad for a change. And although the lake level had risen so rapidly during the week , we were still able to see some nice fish brought to the scales. 26 teams showed up to try there luck at the Alum beast which has been not very kind to most any angler for a while. There was only 4 limits weighed in on Saturday and 3 limits on Sunday. All the larger fish seemed to be small mouths. I do not believe that we had a single large mouth weighed in that would have weighed over 1.5 pounds. :(

Anglers were presented with over $5,000 in cash and prizes at this event. Making this event offer the best payouts of any open event in our area , but were also awarded some of the best door prizes most anglers have received at an event as well. Boat boys supplied us with many items ranging from Skeet Reese rods , a rear deck mount non boater rod rack , $100 pairs of sunglasses , many t-shirts and hats as well as tons of other great items that they carry at there locations. Although we only had 26 teams participate this go around , we are sure that we will definatly have a much larger turn out at next seasons event. The participating anglers seemed to have a great time and enjoyed how the event was presented and opperated. We try our best to put on a great show for everyone.

Now for the results.
1st place - Rick Imler & Mike Copper with 9 fish weighing 13.48 pounds earning $1,400
2nd place - Bob Davis & Willie Davis with 10 fish weighing 10.06 pounds earning $800
3rd place - Aaron Stumph & Ryan Stumph with 6 fish weighing 9.99 pounds earning $550
4th place - Todd Thompson & Eddie Levin with 8 fish weighing 9.44 pounds earning $250

1st day big bass went to Rick Imler & Mike Cooper with a 4.32# smallie earning $240
2nd day big bass went to Phil Carver & Gabe Jackson with a 4.09# smallie earning $240
Over all big bass went to Imler & Cooper earning them an additional $120
The "Big Ugly" side pot was won by Carver & Jackson with a 8.42# carp earning $80
To bad the team of Scott Newlon & Kevin Collins did not opt to participate in this side pot. They would have blown everyone away with the fish they caught on Saturday. Just look how big this thing was! It was realeased to fight again anouther day. Sorry for the bad pic but its all I could get from my phone. :(

Thanks for posting some results. Sounds like it was tough but still a good time for those who participated.
