« on: May 28, 2019, 02:08:34 PM »
Chester County Bass Masters held their 2nd of five opens for the 2019 season on May 25th out of Anchor Marine in Northeast Maryland.

66 Teams showed up on a late spring Saturday in search of a 5 fish limit of Upper Bay black bass.  The largemouth were in various stages, some still spawning, some post spawn.

A few storms rolled thru during the week, muddying up the water a little but cleared out for the weekend to set up for a nice tournament day.
Air temps at launch were around 57 with very little breeze. The tournament launched at 5:30 under partly cloudy skies with a forecast high of 74. Winds picked up mid morning to the normal 10 +.

Water temps were in the 69 - 72 degree range depending on where you fished. Water color was a little muddy in some areas, with normal water farther south.
Launch was on a falling tide with low around 10:30 am.

31  five fish limits were brought in with 10 other teams having 4 fish.
41  double digit weights were brought to the scales.
  7   bass over 4 pounds were weighed in.
 11  bass over 5 pounds were weighed in.
   3  bass over 6 pounds were weighed in.

14 cash places were paid, along with 16 sponsor prizes from Susquehanna Tackle,  Rhino Linings of Delaware, Dobyns Rods, Cal Coast Clip n Cull, Bass Cat,  River Bottom Reels, Zee Bait Company,  Steak & Main Restaurant , BUFF USA,  Hi Seas fishing line,  Nichols Lures, Batteries+ Store , Gruv Fishing  Boxes, Native Tungsten Weights, Venom Lures  and GRT Jigs.

26 boats participated in  $ 60 option pot which paid 3 spots.

$ 6,977 in cash was paid along with $ 1000 in sponsor prizes.

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

The next Chester County Open tournament of 2019 will be on Saturday, July 13th out of Anchor Marine.
