  • It is the anglers responsibility to upload eligible photos by 8:30PM.

  • This tournament is 20 black bass (Largemouth, Smallmouth, Spotted).

  • Places are determined by an anglers total length.  Tiebreakers will compare anglers longest bass and then 2nd, 3rd, etc if needed to break the tie(s).

Eligible Water

  • At its most basic definition, eligible water is anything in Ohio that is accessible to everyone.  Accessible means it is legal, open to everyone, and does not require special permission.

  • Eligible water includes anything owned by the government (park system, city, township, county, state, federal, ODNR) where fishing from a kayak is permitted.  This also includes Ohio waterways designated as rivers or creeks.

  • Privately owned water is eligible under certain circumstances.  It must be accessible BY ANYONE without restricted passes, special permissions, deals, agreements, or backdoor handshakes from the owner.  Anyone should have access to fish the body of water.  For example a private community that requires a landowner or guest pass is ineligible.

  • NEW FOR 2021: Public and Private water that require permits are eligible if...

  • If there are unlimited permits that can be acquired the same day it is going to be fished.  For example, if a lake only offers 5 permits per day or a limited number of permits a day it is off limits.  If a lake offers multiple permits in a day but they have to be scheduled in advance of the day it is fished it is off limits.

  • We get asked several times a year if AEP is eligible water.  YES, AEP is eligible.  They offer unlimited permits the same day and anyone can obtain on HERE.  As for any other waterway AEP rules & regulations MUST be followed.

  • If you have a question about eligible water and a possible location don't hesitate to email

  • All laws, rules, and regulations must be followed while fishing the body of water.  For example, if a body of water allows fishing only during daylight hours then any fish caught outside of that period would not be eligible and cause for immediate disqualification.
