Online Ohio Open
Need Help? Contact Us
The Online Ohio Open is open to both non members and members of KFO. Anglers are able to fish any public Ohio body of water. This means that private ponds or ponds where you have called and gotten permission are off limits. The general public has to have access to the spot in which you are fishing in order for it to be considered public.
For more information on rules, submitting fish, and other details concerning KFO tournaments view our 2016 Tournament Rules.

Rules and Regulations
Please review the tournament rules at: http://kayakfishingohio.com/tournament-rules
Scoring is done by the “catch-measure-photo-release” method. Participants must use a digital camera or smart phone (preferred) to take a photo of the bass on the standard measuring device that is on the “approved list.”
• Anglers may score up to 3 black bass. Fish are scored via length (inches) and the longest combined length will win.
• Anglers may access the water after the captain’s meeting (if there is one) in non-joint events but cannot make their first cast until official “sunrise” as stated by http://www.TimeAndDate.com
• Fish measuring cannot begin until the sun is up and photos deemed to be taken in the dark will not be accepted even if a tournament start time is before the sun is up.
• The bass’ nose or lip must be touching the front of the measuring device and a deduction should be expected if it is not.
• The bass must be facing to the left when measuring it to prevent a competitor from trying to score it twice.
• The bass must be on an “approved” measuring device with the front of the device and the device beyond the tail in the photo. i.e. Hawg Trough.
• The fishes mouth must be closed or we will dock length as we see fit.
• The fishes tail may be pinched or fanned.
• The tournament identifier for that tournament must be present in the photo.
• In the event a photo submission does not meet the stated rules length will be determined by judge.
• There is an 8-inch minimum length on fish.
• All fish must be released back into the water system where they were caught.
• If not using mobile device, upon return to the host location anglers will go to that tournament’s web page and click on “Submit Fish Photos” to submit their catch photos and scores.
• Submitted fish measuring the same length must have distinct differences in appearance or the angler may be subject to disqualification.
• The tournament committee will review all photos to verify validity of the catch and the length to determine place winners.
• Length is rounded down to the nearest quarter of an inch.
• Ties: Ties are broken by whichever fish were submitted to the site first. Yes, this does give those with a smartphone an advantage if they submit from the water.
• Polygraph: Each contestant may be required to submit to a polygraph examination at a time and location determined by the tournament director following the end of the competition in each tournament and abides by its conclusion. Failure to pass the polygraph will result in disqualification.
• To be eligible for tournament prizes or event specific raffles you must catch at least one fish.
