Tournament Day & Identifier

Identifiers can be printed off HERE. The code for the identifier will be released by 9PM on Friday, June 26th on Facebook, Tourney X, and Twitter FOR DAY 1There will be an additional code released no later than 9PM Saturday night for DAY 2. An identifier with no code, the wrong code, or codes in the wrong boxes will not be accepted.  If participating in multiple tournaments you can combine codes on a single identifier, but they must be correct and they must be in the correct boxes.

5:30AM (DAY 1 & Day 2) - First cast; Anglers may begin fishing.  Any fish caught prior to this time will be DQ'd.


12:00-2:00PM (DAY 1 & Day 2) - At some point during this time frame the Tourney X standings will disappear to add a little drama to the final standings.  Once they go dark you will still be able to submit fish.  If you want to verify your fish have been uploaded check the email address you signed up with for Tourney X.  DO NOT CALL OR MESSAGE US.  If you don't receive an email letting you know the fish was submitted then you need to keep trying.  The main reason a fish submission won't upload is because there is no cellular service where you are uploading.  Anglers need to be aware of that and head to a spot with service in enough time to upload. 

2:00PM (DAY 1 & Day 2) - Fishing ends and no submissions will be accepted.  If you are unable to upload fish you are required to be back at the measure-in location BEFORE 2PM.  If you arrive after 2PM the fish will be disqualified.


3:00PM (DAY 1 & Day 2) - All anglers are required to be at the measure-in located at:

Raccoon Creek Outfitters

74815 U.S. Highway 50

If you do not attend the measure-in:

*You forfeit all rights to the 50/50 cash drawing you entered

*You forfeit all rights to all the raffle prizes that are awarded to anglers who didn't finish in the top 2 (or won big fish).


Eligible Fishing Waters

Unfortunately the ODNR Maps are down on their website, so you will have to do your own research to find these eligible lakes:

*Dow Lake

*Lake Snowden

*Lake Hope 

*Lake Logan

*Burr Oak Lake

*Lake Rupert - Be advised we are hearing this lake may be low for a draw down for repairs, but it is still accessable.

Any water on the maps above must be accessible by paddling/pedaling (no dragging)  from the main lake.  Remember, you can only use public access to put in and take out. Do not launch/take-out from Private Property as it will lead to disqualification.


*Any moving water within a 30 mile radius is also eligible as long as it is in Ohio.  See map below....

NOTE: The map below is for MOVING WATER ONLY.  Lakes/ponds within this boundary are off limits unless listed above.
