32 Teams showed up on a typical chilly fall Saturday to search for some of the Upper Bayís largemouth that have been feeding up in the past few weeks in anticipation of winter.

Air temps at launch were around 38 but thankfully no wind. The tournament launched at 7:00 under sunny skies with a forecast high of 58. Cloud cover rolled in halfway thru the day with a slight breeze.

Water temps were in the 57 to 64-degree range depending on where you fished, with some off-colored water in areas of the North East.

Launch was on the end of the rising tide with a high around 8:00 and a falling tide all day, low was to occur around 2:45.

The fishing was tough for the most part with only a handful of teams finding any concentration of bass. 7 limits were brought to the scales for the 2:30 weigh in, with 8 bags over 10 pounds.

The big girls took the day off with only three bass over 5 pounds and three over 4 pounds brought to the scale.

7 cash places were paid, along with 6 sponsor prizes from Susquehanna Tackle, Browning Eyewear, River Bottom Reels, Cabela's of Christiana Mall, Sunoco, and GRT jigs.

Thanks to everyone who came out to fish, we and our sponsors appreciate the support and friendly competition.

The last Chester County open of 2015 will be on Saturday, November 14th out of Anchor Marine.

First place payout went to the team of Lou Croce and Jimmy Pitcherello. No strangers to fishing the Upper Bay, they outdistanced the rest of the field with a hefty limit of 19.53 pounds. Included in that impressive bag was a healthy 5.47 fat girl which earned them a $ 50.00 gift card for the Susquehanna Tackle second lunker award for the tournament. The win puts them in a first place tie for the overall points race in the CCBM Opens.

Congrats to the team on a fantastic day.
