Ohio Walleye Federation Berlin Lake Results

Press Release for the Ohio Walleye Federation Qualifier #2

May 5th, 2013

Thirty-one teams competed on Berlin Lake during the Ohio Walleye Federation’s second qualifying event sponsored by Ravenna Marine. Teams were challenged with a very tough transition bite coupled with high winds and dropping water levels. Teams adjusted from looking for quality fish to settling with anything over the minimum length limit of 15in with 1/4 of the field zeroing and over half of the field not weighing a 5 fish limit. Collin Murphy and Jay Dossi brought the heaviest weight of the day to the scales with 11.15lbs anchored by a 3.35lb big fish earning them 1st place and the $2500 first place prize. Murphy/Dossi caught their fish jigging with Knuckleball Jigs and night crawlers in 3-6ft of water. Most of the other teams in the top 10 also caught their fish jigging worms in water 2-8ft deep. Best performing colors were said to be chartreuse, orange and firetiger. The team of Wellner & Rhodes tied Murphy Dossi for big fish with a 3.35lb walleye caught trolling harnesses suspended 5ft below the surface.

The next OWF tournament will be the Inland Lake Championship which will be a two day tournament held on two different lakes. Day 1 Lake Milton on June 1st and Day 2 on Mosquito Lake on June 2nd. Once again anglers will be competing for a guaranteed $2500 1st place prize. More information can be found at www.fishowf.com
