After the opening of more than 17 flood gates and the cancelling of the Elite Series event, the Upper Bay has seen some big changes!
The number one and most important change was the grass, or should I say, lack of! This was a major factor in the size and numbers of bass being brought to scales on the upper bay, that now is almost non existant.
The challange now is to find the grass where it does exist, and to find the wood cover, drop offs, and rock piles where the baitfish and of course the bass have moved to.
This makes having and understanding good electronics and knowledge of tides even more important than ever before.
To learn more about these locations and tactics you can schedule a trip with us or just visit our group on Facebook and talk with anglers who fish these waters and live on the bay.
Stop in the tackle store to view some of the newer baits that aretaking good bass from these ever changing conditions.
Current locations and tips are on our new Facebook forums

Little less than a year ago Clent Davis was contemplating giving up the sport of professional bass fishing for good. Now, he’s the Forrest Wood Cup champion.
Despite starting the final day at Lake Ouachita in 10th place, Davis crushed the largest bag of the tournament – 17 pounds, 13 ounces – to be the first angler to make up nine places on the final day of the Cup. His 36 pounds, 13 ounces was more than 7 pounds better than second-place pro James Niggemeyer.
“I don’t even know what to do or what I’m feeling,” a stunned Davis said on stage after day-two leader Wes Logan lifted his hand to show he had only one fish in his bag. “This is incredible.”
TOP 10 PROS
1. Clent Davis – Montevallo, Ala. – 36-13 – $300,000
2. James Niggemeyer – Van, Texas – 29-9 – $60,000
3. Justin Atkins – Florence, Ala. – 28-12 – $50,000
4. Nick LeBrun – Bossier City, La. – 28-6 – $37,500
5. Jason Lambert – Michie, Tenn. – 27-15 – $30,000
6. Zack Birge – Blanchard, Okla. – 26-13 – $24,000
7. Wes Logan – Springville, Ala. – 25-9 – $23,000
8. John Cox – DeBary, Fla. – 24-7 – $22,000
9. Brandon Cobb – Greenwood, S.C. – 23-1 – $21,000

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — For the second time in the 2018 Bassmaster Elite Series season, B.A.S.S. was forced to postpone an Elite event because of massive flooding and unsafe boating conditions. And for the first time in Elite Series history, one of those events has been canceled altogether, the organization announced today
The Huk Bassmaster Elite at Upper Chesapeake Bay presented by Mossy Oak Fishing will not be rescheduled, said Bruce Akin, CEO.
“By the time conditions on the upper Chesapeake Bay improved enough for competition, our great hosts at Harford County, Md., were unable to accommodate our event,” he said. “We could have switched the event to another fishery, but in consideration of Elite anglers who had important obligations during the times we had available, we elected to end the season with eight qualifying events, instead of the nine we had planned.
“We are really disappointed that we could not conduct the Maryland event as planned. We were anticipating huge crowds of spectators and excellent fish catches — as we always have on the upper Chesapeake.”
The regular season will end with the Bassmaster Elite at St. Lawrence River presented by Black Velvet, to be held Aug. 23-26 at Waddington, N.Y. Elite anglers ranked in the Top 50 of the Toyota Bassmaster Angler of the Year points list after that event will compete in the Toyota Bassmaster Angler of the Year Championship at Chatuge Lake at Young Harris, Ga., Sept. 20-23.
That championship will pay $1 million to the qualifiers based on cumulative AOY points, and it will determine the 2018 Bassmaster Angler of the Year as well as pro qualifiers for the Bassmaster Classic presented by DICK’S Sporting Goods at Knoxville, Tenn., next March.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
July 26, 2018
B.A.S.S. Postpones Chesapeake Bay Elite Due To Unsafe Boating Conditions
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Due to recent heavy rainfall and increasingly dangerous water conditions, B.A.S.S. officials decided to postpone the Huk Bassmaster Elite at Upper Chesapeake Bay presented by Mossy Oak Fishing that was originally scheduled for July 26-29 out of Harford County, Md.
Our number one priority is the safety of our anglers and anyone else who might be on the waters of the Upper Chesapeake Bay,” said B.A.S.S. Tournament Director Trip Weldon. “After consulting with authorities regarding increased water releases, debris and current hazardous conditions on tournament waters, B.A.S.S. is postponing this week's event.”
The tournament will likely be scheduled for later in the 2018 Bassmaster Elite Series season, which concludes with the Toyota Bassmaster Angler of the Year Championship in September.
Officials from B.A.S.S., event sponsors and local host organizations will be meeting in coming days to discuss options pertaining to rescheduled dates.
