August 19th Bi Hourly Big Bass results
« on: August 29, 2017, 08:28:13 PM »
Chester County Bass Masters held their Inaugural Bi - Hourly Big Bass tournament on August 19th out of Anchor Marine in Northeast Maryland.

14 Teams showed up to fish a unique style tournament where every team could weigh 1 fish each two hour interval.

Weigh in periods were 6 to 8,   8 to 10,   10 to 12  and  12 to 2:30.

Air temps at launch were around 70 and humid with very light winds. The tournament launched at 6:00 under partial cloud cover with a forecast high of 85.

Water temps were in the 82 to 85 degree range depending on where you fished. Water in the Northeast was muddy after 2 inches of rain fell on the area Friday with a little better water out on the Flats and Susky.

Launch was on a rising tide with a high tide around 9:00.

The Flats were busy as a few other tournaments were launched on various ramps thru out the bay and as usual this time of the year per August fishing the largemouth can be elusive.

All bass were released alive and healthy.

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

Thanks to Sunoco Fuels for awarding over $ 500 in gas cards to our second place finishers in each period.

The next regular Chester County open of 2017 will be on Saturday, September 16th out of Anchor Marine.
