Chester County Bass Masters November 17th Upper Bay Open RESULTS
« on: November 21, 2018, 02:40:52 PM »
Chester County Bass Masters held the last of their 5 Open tournaments for 2018 on November 17th out of Anchor Marine in North East, Maryland.
The TX had been originally scheduled for the 11th but Gale warnings forced the move to the 17th.

28 Teams showed up on a cold fall Saturday to search for some of the Upper Bay’s largemouth that had been on the feed the past few weeks with the cooler water temps.

Air temps at launch were around 32, but thankfully no wind. The tournament launched at 6:30 under partly cloudy skies, some sun helped get the temp up mid morning. Temps eventually reached 42 at weigh in.

Water temps were in the 41 to 42-degree range depending on where you fished, with mostly stained to muddy water color.

Launch was on a falling tide, high was 5:30 am with a low around 12:30. A major cold front with snow and high winds came thru Thursday afternoon.
Fishing was tough for most. Throw in the low water temps and it was a challenge to find any active fish.

5 teams brought 5 limits of bass to the scales for the 2:30 weigh in with 5 bags over 10 pounds.

A couple big girls were caught with 3 bass over 5 pounds weighed in.

6 cash places were paid, along with 11 sponsor prizes from Susquehanna Tackle, Bass Cat, River Bottom Reels, Cabela's of Christiana Mall, Sunoco, Hi Seas fishing line, Zee Bait Company, Dobyns Rods, GRT Jigs, and Boomerang Tool Company

17 boats participated in the $ 60 option pot which paid out 2 spots.

Total payout was $ 3916
Cash payout's were $ 3,316 along with $ 600 in Sponsor prizes.

Thanks to everyone who came out to fish, we and our sponsors appreciate the support and friendly competition. We'll see you for the 1st CCBM Open in early spring 2019.

We will be running 5 Opens again in 2019 with point totals being kept for your best 4 of the 5 tournaments. As in past years the top 5 teams for the season will receive prize packages to be determined.

2019 schedule will be posted soon to our Chester County Open Tournament Series facebook page :

First place payout went to the team of Mike Piccolo and Bill Ville. They had a great day, winning by over 1.5 pounds on a day when limits were hard to come by. Their five bass went 16.91 pounds. Included in that impressive bag was a healthy 5.96 fat girl which earned them the TX Lunker and the $ 280 cash that went with it.

The team also took home first place in the Option Pot, another $ 612 to their total.
Congrats to the team on a fantastic day.

Second Place cash was won by the team of Eric McNulty and Doug Rehm who brought 5 fish to the scales that went 15.22 pounds to just beat out the 3rd place team. Another nice bag of Upper Bay Bass on a day the fish were not cooperating.

Golf is for guys whose wives won't let them buy a bass boat

Bass Fishing is like Church, many attend - Few get it.
