    - You can fish in any public waters throughout the state of Ohio
    - You can use any bait that is legal to use
    - All people fishing in a group must be entered in a tournament. This ensures a fair chance to all participants
    - Cheating will not be tolerated. If anyone is suspected of cheating, I can and will question it. I reserve the right to allow or deny the entry of anyone for the tournament. If you are found to be cheating, I will relay the message to other groups who hold tournaments. If a fish looks battered, do not bring it to the scale. I will refuse and disqualify anyone who brings a fish in that looks like it was in a cage.
    - No trotlines, bank lines, or jug lines are permitted. This tourney is for rod & reel only!
    - Do not bring dead fish to the scales. No dead fish will be weighed in. You can keep your catch if you wish, but if you intend on releasing your fish, please take care of them so they can be released alive. Weigh-in is right by the water so you can easily let them go!
    - Must be at the weigh-in location by 8:00 AM or will be disqualified. No excuse will be tolerated ex. Don’t say your clock says 7:50……Be there early enough!
    - Payout will be 3 places based on 20 or more entries 1st 55% 2nd 30% 3rd 15%
    Under 20 entries will pay 2 places 1st 65% 2nd 35%

    I will be selling sinkers at the sign-up. I may have some bait for sale too, but don’t count on it. Most drive-thrus carry nightcrawlers…….Also can get bait at Cripple Creek Bait and Tackle near Tappan Lake.

    This tournament is for fun. I am not making money on this. There is 100% payout. If you are in it just to win money, you are here for the wrong reason. Let’s keep this a fun competition between yourself and other people that enjoy catfishing as much as you.

    If you have any other questions or inquiries, you can contact Rocky Moore at 740-254-1017 or email me: If we can get enough people to come for sure, I will also hold a rod/reel raffle. Call me ahead of time if you will be coming for sure!

  3. Rocky where is the registration going to be? down at the boat dock.
    let me know. pm me if you get the time.
    I hope to be there.

    Bumping this up!

    I know if I had T & A and of course was female I would get more response's, but that is what I have come to expect from here.

    Will be good fun and sounds to be a decent turnout in my opinion.

    I know if i change my name to hot woman fishing and have a sexy pic in little clothing for an avatar or in my signature, I would have 50 people lined up.......but I am just a rockbass
