OHMC 2024 May Madness Tournament

Spring has sprung and now it is time to go after those post spawn muskies! Our May Madness Tournament is  at Piedmont Lake on Saturday May 18th. The muskies can always be muskies, but we should be putting lures in front of hungry fish fully recovered from the spawn with shad spawning on shoreline cover everywhere.

For participating in our May Madness Tournament, each participant will receive a free musky lure ticket at weigh-in to enter into a raffle featuring baits from Six2Noon Lures and others.

Please join us at weigh-in following a fun (and hopefully, successful) day on the water for some pizza and to share some fish stories as we also present the tournament winners with their trophies.

This is a single day points tournament, (with an optional Big Fish side pot), which will run from 7:30 am to 5:00 pm, Saturday.  All catch entries must be photographed on a bump board with the assigned identifier code visible and turned into the Tournament Director (TD) by 5:30 pm at the marina, or via the TD cell phone number(s) that is provided. Any fish must measure at least 30” to be submitted.  Scoring in this points system awards 4 points for a 30” fish plus 1 additional point is given for every inch over 30”.   For example, a 42.5” fish would earn 4 points plus 12.5 points for a total of 16.5 points.  The winner will be the highest total points for the day.  First, second, and third place will receive trophies at the check-in.  

New for 2024 and going forward: All in-person event plaques will now be given to the winner at the designated in-person fish “weigh-in” location.  If any angler receiving a plaque is unable to make it to the “weigh-in” location, it is that angler’s responsibility to pick it up at a later date.  Plaques will not be mailed out going forward. Plaques will be forfeited after the following year’s banquet.

Once registered, you can launch from any public launch the day of the event. We look forward to seeing you!
