Reporting Tournament Results
Members of the Ohio Bass Federation, Ohio B.A.S.S.
Federation Nation, or other bass organizations are welcome to record tournament
results in the Division of Wildlife Bass Tournament database. Reporting this information
helps the Division manage bass fisheries throughout Ohio.
Security/Password Protection – Access to enter or view a club’s records is
password protected. Only one password will be given to the tournament director or
designee for each club. Club specific information is only accessible to the club.
If you do not have a password or have forgotten your password, please contact Ethan
Recording Information at the Weigh-In – Please use the new DOW tournament
form for recording tournament results at the club weigh-in beginning May 19, 2006.
Recording tournament results on this form will speed up entering information on-line

Paper Submittal of Weigh-In Forms – If at all possible please submit your
results on line. On-line reporting saves mail in costs and reduces time to process
the data. However, if a club wishes to submit their tournament results by mail,
they may send them to Fisheries Biologist Ethan Simmons (see contact information at
the entry login page).

and you click “enter” the records can only be edited by the Division of Wildlife.
