Near the launch ramp at Dundee Creek Marina early yesterday morning, perhaps a couple of dozen fans of bass fishing strolled along the line of 40 metal-flake vans pulling matching metal-flake bass boats. A hand was shaken here, a hat signed there. Words of encouragement were called through the morning.It is bass fishing's version of the players' gate at Memorial Stadium, the time and place where the spectators might steal a moment with or an autograph from a favorite superstar, veteran or rookie.

Randy Blaukat, a veteran touring pro from Joplin, Mo., rode from 23rd to first place yesterday in the Kmart Bassmaster Top 100 Pro-Am, largely on the strength of the largest bass caught so far in the three-day tournament on the Potomac River.Blaukat's big bass weighed 6 pounds, 15 ounces and his five-bass limit for the day totaled 20-14. His two-day total is 35-7.By 8: 30 a.m. yesterday, Blaukat said, he had caught a five-bass limit on a rising tide and was culling fish. He would not say what lure he used or where he caught the lunker, but did admit he "was fishing a really small lure" on 12-pound test line.

It should be interesting when 40 of the world's best bas chasers arrive Aug. 18 to try to find fish in 12 rivers of the upper Chesapeake complex during the 21st annual BASS Masters Classic. Until recent informal practice sessions, few had ever heard of the Northeast, Sassafras, Bohemia, Dundee and so forth.Word is that some of them found nice bass before Sunday' practice cutoff -- no more fishing here until official warmups start Aug. 19, then the big three-day event itself Aug. 22-24.The field represents 17 states, and only two of them have ha much previous experience with local waters.

Gary Halbeisen will be eating his state record this weekend with a little garlic and a pinch of salt and pepper. Last Saturday, the Bel Air angler reeled in a 9-pound tautog -- small by ocean standards but the largest ever recorded on the Chesapeake Bay. "It was quite a surprise," said Halbeisen, 58, a defense contractor in Anne Arundel County. "It's just beginning to sink in." He was one of a party of nine fishermen aboard Capt. Jim Brincefield's charter boat, Jil Carrie. They were chumming at the target ship at the Middle Grounds, just off Point Lookout.

Yesterday, the BASS Masters sailed with sharpened hooks for the first time. Sampling and scouting was over, catching was for real, real money, and the 40 contenders found the Chesapeake and its fish also are for real.After the world's best bass-chasers in the 21st annual $200,000 BASS Masters Classic weighed in their first-day catches at Baltimore Arena, the upper Chesapeake complex is due an apology. Written off by many as so-so bass'n grounds during pre-practice in early summer and then again in Tuesday's official practice, the bay had the last laugh.

ORLANDO, Fla. -- In the 10 years that fishing has been the chief passion in his life, Chris Mathis, 14, has had one hero: TV fishing show host Roland Martin.So after the Rock Springs, Ga., teen-ager learned he had an inoperable brain tumor, he didn't hesitate when Dream Makers Inc. asked him to make a wish. His wish would be to fish with Martin.Yet when the Nashville, Tenn.-based group that arranges dream trips for children with life-threatening conditions called back, it was to tell Chris that his wish would go unfulfilled.
