« on: April 08, 2019, 09:40:13 PM »
Chester County Bass Masters held their 1st of five opens for the 2019 season on April 6th out of Anchor Marine in Northeast Maryland.

62 Teams showed up on a cold, wet, early spring Saturday in search of a 5 fish limit of Upper Bay black bass.  The largemouth were transitioning from their cold weather hangouts to some of the pre spawn areas the week leading up to the tournament with reports of some big fish being caught.

A cold rain front moved thru the area Friday, muddying up the water a little. Some light rain started around 3:30 am and continued off and on until launch.
Air temps at launch were around 41 with very little breeze. The tournament launched at 6:30 under cloudy skies with a forecast high of 65. Winds picked up mid morning to the normal 10.

Water temps were in the 50 - 54 degree range depending on where you fished. Water color was a little muddy in some areas, with normal water farther south.
Launch was on low tide with high around Noon.

Two flights went out with the first flight due back at 2:30 and second flight at 2:45.
 
18 five fish limits were brought in with 2 other teams having 4 fish.
20 double digit weights were brought to the scales.
13 bass over 4 pounds were weighed in.
  3 bass over 5 pounds were weighed in.
  2 bass over 6 pounds were weighed in.

13 cash places were paid, along with 14 sponsor prizes from Susquehanna Tackle,  Bass Cat,  River Bottom Reels, Zee Bait Company,  Steak & Main Restaurant , BUFF USA,  Hi Seas fishing line,  Nichols Lures, Batteries+ , Gruv Fishing  Boxes, Native Tungsten Weights, Venom Lures  and GRT Jigs.

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

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, May 25th out of Anchor Marine.

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

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