Ohio’s Record Fish

Outdoor Writers of Ohio is the nation’s only writers organization that maintains a state’s official angling records.

OWO’s Record Fish Committee, made up of five volunteer members, reviews each application and supporting documentation, including photographs, certified weight slip and statement from a fisheries biologist with the Ohio Division of Wildlife.

The current Ohio Record Fish information can be found here. The record fish application form is here.
