  2006   hazzard county bassmasters    2019



We Began our club in the fall of 2006 to hang out and enjoy the sport of bass fishing.   We fish the Upper Chesapeake Bay, the Potomac, Deep Creek Lake, and Conowingo Lake.   We practice catch and release and have a great deal of respect for our sport, our fellow anglers, and our waters.  We began as a small club with the intention of learning, teaching, and sharing our sport of bass fishing.  In 2015, We decided as a club that we would go to a 3 fish limit per angler to help for fish conservation.  We hope other clubs and events in our area consider this as well.   Our members are from the Northern region of the state of Maryland :  Harford County a.k.a. Hazzard County , Baltimore County , Cecil County, Carroll County, Howard County, and Southern PA. 





        Finish to  2018 ....

            ....and 2018 is in the books after a powerhouse finish.   With the club's Mr Bass title up for grabs, 6 members had a shot going into the Club Classic and the ever-dangerous double points that it brings.   In the end, the points leader, Troy Duff held onto his 11 point lead by the slimmest of margins.  Troy Caught the right bass when he needed them this year.  With one over 5 pounds in the last regular season event and a last minute fish caught 8 minutes before weigh-in that culled 1 pound to his stringer, Troy held off a mighty charge by Dave, Tom, Brian, Ben, and John.   Dave Enderlein made a serious charge and made up a lot of ground going for the title with impressive fishing over the last two tournaments which includes the win at this years classic.  Dave finished just 3 points behind Troy for the 2018 Mr Bass.  Tom Casteel put two great tournaments together and was right there in the end and will secure the 3rd Place trophy for 2018.

NEW SEASON BEGINS....... 2 0 1 9 

April 2019

The 2019 fishing season began on April 7th out of Tydings.   As is the norm these days, the fish were highly pressured over the weekend by multiple large tournaments.  The effect was semi-hard fishing.   The Club welcomes new members Keith and Paul.  We are excited also by the return of Dave Crocken.  Dave has re-joined the club after taking a couple years off.  Next up is the Potomac River fishing trip and tournament.  Good Luck!
Winner of the 1st Tournament was John.  

May - June 2019

      After 3 tournaments, John, Paulie, Tom, Eric, and Matt are in the top 5.   From there its a tight race to break into the top 5.   The big fish only sits at 4.11 caught by John in the first tournament of the year.  Paulie and John are both off to a great start and have an early edge on the field.  But with 7 to go including two mid-summer showdowns, the return of the wildcard, and the final northeast run to the Classic, the rest of this season should prove to be another great year where big moves are bound to happen.  

    The 2019 Potomac was the club's best weigh-in since going to a 3 fish limit.    Over 75 lbs of bass released during weigh-in at Aquia Creek.   Eric took 1st Place with 3 bass going 10 lbs 15 oz!   The Elk River Tournament found the club searching for good grass....Paulie wins on the Elk.  Some changes up and down the board from 3rd through 12th.  Next up will be the Conowingo!   

((   Conowingo Lake, Tydings (the Flats), and Bush River  ))

-- The MiD-SumMeR SHOwdOwN !!!!


...the first leg of the mid-summer showdown took place on the Conowingo.  Every once in a while you get one of these tournaments.  It was the "Battle of the Dinks"!    Muddy conditions after a week and a half of northern rains and wind made Conowingo a tricky fishery today.  6 limits came to the scales today along with some 1's and 2's.  Joe Montoya out-dinked everyone with 3 fish for 5 lbs even! Ben and Matt followed with 2nd and 3rd place finishes.  Tom and Dave Enderlein were in the top 5 as well.   Our current points leaders finished 7th and 8th today.  John picked up an extra point on Paulie as a result.   There were some big moves from the bottom of the leaderboard as Joe Montoya breaks into the top 5 with Eric sliding to 6th place.  The top 5 are separated by 11 points and 6th thru 10th are within 5 points of each other.  

So after 4 tournaments, we have 4 different winners with 1st place finishes by John, Eric, Paulie, and Joe.  Next up is the flats tournament followed by the Bush River.....
