Mother Nature set the stage for a challenging day as the anglers rolled in to fish the Delaware B.A.S.S. Nation's first stop of the 2017 season. The Upper Chesapeake Bay is a diverse fishery that encompasses a large amount of fishable water where anglers can focus on their strengths and catch limits of bass that would rival any tidal fishery. This fishery will also be the host of the 2017 BASS Nation’s Eastern Regional in June. With overcast skies and windy conditions the anglers were faced with challenging conditions.
The top team for the day would would boast a 22.57 lb bag of largemouth bass. The second place team of Mike Mullett and Jacob Coverdale would present another monster bag weighing in at 21.88. Rounding out the top three was local stick Drisco Durham and Doug Jackson would weigh in a respectable 21.83 lbs. The largest fish of the day was a 6.19 lb bass caught by the team of Brian LaClair and Mike Morris. Our next event is scheduled for the Pocomoke river on June 24th.
