From the Tournament Directors Front Deck:
The Ohio Bass Nation presents the First Team Bassmaster Championship Trail Event for 2019 on Rocky Fork Lake. This event will be one of 4 events that determine the Ohio Team Champion. This event is a two man team event. There is no official off limits other than what is designated below and to the Tournament Director’s discretion prior to launch. The rules for the tournament will mirror the Bassmaster Open Rules with Modifications. See the OBN Website for official rules. Each team is responsible for knowing the rules along with the laws in Ohio. Livewell checks will be conducted in the parking lot/on the water, kill switches will be checked, and lights operational to launch. Safety must be observed. If your light does not work you won’t be able to launch until safe light or you get your lights working (whichever happens first).
Fish Care is very important to the OBN and B.A.S.S, so please be prepared to exemplify the best fish care that you can to help ensure that no casualties will occur during the event. Volunteers to run fish to be released outside the launch area would be greatly appreciated!! If you are interested in running fish please contact me via cell.
