About the Club

Back in the early days of tournament fishing, there was a rapidly growing interest in the sport. Information was limited on how, where and when to catch Bass.  One of the best ways to learn was by belonging to a Bass club.  By knowing this, some avid fisherman in our area planned and organized a Bass club.  That club became known as Southern Ohio Bassmasters.  The object of creating the club was for members to enjoy the sport by learning from other fisherman while at the same time competing and enjoying the benefits of being in a Bass club.  Many club members, both previous and presently active, have benefited over the years by having been a part of S.O.B.  The same concepts still apply now as they did in the beginning.  The doors to the future are always open to new members and as always old members are always welcome back.   Take a look at our By-Laws here.

Words of Wisdom

Joe finally received a return call from ODNR about the slotted size and limit at Paint Creek Lake.
Slot = 2- fish under 15" and 2 fish over 15"
If a fish measures 15" exactly, it is considered over 15".
This slot limit is in effect for any licensed fisherman at Paint Creek Lake.
By popular demand we are changing this tournament only to a four fish limit per boat to make it fair to those who fish alone. We want everyone to know we listen to our members and make changes that make sense.
We hope to see you there!
