    Buckeye Bassin' Classic Open Tournament

    Registration starts at 5:30am
    New Galena Ramp
    $80 per boat (Big Bass included)

    I doubt I need to tell you guys that the date of this tournament should be prime-time for some smallmouth action.

    Hope to see you all out at the event to support collegiate bass fishing and the Bass Fishing Club of OSU at our only fund-raising event of the year.

    Thanks,

  2. This is going to be a very fun tournament. I will be there trying to cash in on some of the fall Alum Creek action.

    If anyone has this saturday off there couldn't be a better way to spend it than fishing this tournament and help supporting us...the OSU bass fishing team.

    See you all there, please spread the word!

    The Registration Form is up on our website now along with the tournament information. It will speed things up in the morning if you print off the Registration form and have it filled out when you arrive at the ramp. However, copies will be available at the ramp if needed.

    Count me in for sure. I am sure we can give it some mentions on the air, too.
     
  12. Wish I could be there for this one:( Are there any plans to hold this again next year??? I have to work Saturdays unless I schedule time off way in advance. Looking forward to seeing the results and some pics if possible, the smallies should be about ready come this weekend! Good luck to all.:B

    I should be around, potentially, if I don't get out friday night. I dunno how to get into the bass on alum... I've tried it so many times and only failed lol. I'm better at fishing for a grab-bag.

    Plus, no livewell on my boat :(

    Weather Update:
    I have been monitoring just about every weather website I can find and things are looking up. Two days ago they were calling for 70% rain but that chance is steadily dropping and I'm finding numbers between 30-50%. Temperatures should be just about perfect for some bass fishing, so this Saturday should be a great day of fishing.

    I'm with ya, I'd rather have the fish bite than nice weather.

    I'm definitely hoping that its at least overcast and rain doesn't bother me a bit. I was just hoping for manageable winds and nice enough weather to convince a few extra participants to roll out of bed nice and early haha.

    With the changing forecast, it looks like I'm gonna be on the water on saturday morning, or night. I'm thinking morning, just so I can see you guys do your thing :)

    Maybe I'll get in on a tourney someday, but not yet... I'm not good enough at it lol.

    The bass were biting this morning at Alum. I had 3 fish that would have pushed 10 lbs, including a 21 3/4 inch smallie. We did not weigh it because we wanted to get her back to the water quickly, but she was 5+. We had another LM that was around 3 lbs. Also another member was out and caught a 4lber as well. Hopefully the fish are still biting tomorrow.
