  1. Anyone know? I heard a rumor that a 56 was caught.
    Also only 79 boaters - 29 fish were caught though.

    Can anyone confirm?
  2. 43 was the Biggest. and the other numbers you had seemed right. I boated a 31.5 trolling but my nephew that is 8 years old also boated his first muskie that was very exciting to see. his was 31.

  3. Thx- congrats on yours and your nephews fish!
  4. 2008 Open Summer Contest Results -------July 12th & 13th 2008

    THE 38th OHMC ANNUAL OPEN SUMMER CONTEST was held at Pymatuning Lake the weekend of July 12th & 13th, 2008. As always the event was open to the public. Headquarters was set up at the main beach near the causeway. Saturday started us out with a nice morning and afternoon but by mid afternoon the wind picked up and early evening brought out the rain. Sunday we woke up to showers and they continued right up till the awards ceremony. Special thanks to Pymatuning State Park in Ohio for permission to have the event. Please also note that OHMC members voted at the 2008 awards banquet to have the 2009 Open Summer Contest to be held there again next year too. We hosted 74 muskie anglers From Ohio, Pennsylvania and even a few from West Virginia, in pursuit of the mighty muskie. Only 2 huskies were caught this year. But there were 29 muskies turned in total with several anglers registering multiple muskies. The three winners in the Sportsman Division received a trophy award. I would like to congratulate everyone on good releases to let these fish be caught again in the future.

    The Sportsman Division:
    First place winner was Elmer McClure of Navarre, Oh with a 43.00-inch muskie.

    Second place went to Ronald Frantz of Greenville, Pa with a 42.00-inch muskie.

    Third place winner was Mike Mihalko of Clinton, Oh with a 39.00-inch muskie.

    Jr Angler Josh Rine of Proctor WV won the most released plaque with four muskies caught, totaling 136.00-inches.

    Here are the listing of all the muskies caught:
    Elmer McClure of Navarre, Oh----43.00 inch, 31.00 inch

    Just as a side note...I broke the "officers curse" by catching a muskie during official contest hours. That's the first muskie I've caught during a contest since becoming an officer with the club. I actually can't remember the last time any officer caught a muskie during one of our Outings!

    I don't mind bringing the info here for you guys, and since I started frequenting this board...I will continue to update any OHMC stuff on here for you. Just can visit our website and get the info there also. I'm in the process of revamping the OHMC message board and web pages, so look for a "new site" in the near future. We did do a little face lift a couple months's only going to get better ;)
