Next meeting March 15, 2023 on "Zoom", 7:30 pm.

Southern Tier Bassmasters was officially "born" on February 11th, 1998. A dedicated group of eleven tournament fishermen and women decided to start something new in the heart of New York's southern tier to serve the communities in which we live and the youth in these communities.

As sportsmen and women, we support the ideals of the Bass Anglers Sportsman Society and the New York State B.A.S.S. Chapter Federation.

We extend an open invitation for anyone to join us. A boat and experience are NOT NECESSARY!

Schoonover is king of Ontario!

North Rose, NY, September 10, 2022 - Southern Tier Bassmasters held their final points tournament of the 2022 season and Brady Schoonover, once again, leveled the hammer on Lake Ontario smallmouth.

Launching from Bay Bridge Marine on Sodus Bay, Schoonover piloted his Skeeter boat out of the bay and onto Lake Ontario proper. The previous time this season he came out of Irondequoit Bay, roughly 30 miles west of Sodus. Either way, he had these fish dialed in and brought a 5-fish limit to the scales weighing in at 20.92 lbs for the win. He also anchored his sack with a 5.26 lb. tournament lunker. This win also cemented his first place standing as the 2022 Angler of the Year.

Congratulations, Brady!

In second place with a limit of bass tipping the scales at 17.30 lbs. was Charlie Prince. His bag was anchored by a 4.78 lb. bass.

Finishing a close third place, was Jeff Kilbury with a 5-fish limits totalling 17.10 lbs.

Non-boater, Tom Salle, weighed five fish for 15.71 lbs. He anchored his bag with a 5.05 lb. beauty.

Fishcare was very important, especially for the beautiful smallmouth bass on a very warm day. In order to not release these fish in the super warm and shallow waters of the marina, they were loaded back into the livewells and taken out to deeper and cooler water and were released unharmed.
