Next meeting September 14, 2022 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 lands the big ones at Irondequoit Bay!

Sea Breeze, NY, August 6, 2022 - With no practice for this event, Brady Schoonover made the decision to make the approximate 30 mile run over lake Ontario to Sodus Bay. With a south to southwest breeze blowing off shore it made that run possible. The trick is always keeping an eye on the weather for possible wind direction shifts. But on this day the weather held and Schoonover took advantage. He finished in first place with a 5-fish limit registering 19.93 lbs. with a 4.90 lb. fish to anchor his bag.

Well done! Congratulations, Brady!

In second place was Jeff Herbert weighing a solid limit for 15.41 lbs, after an unfortunate .25 lb. fish care penalty. Jeff's stringer was anchored by a 3.66 lb. largemouth bass.

Finishing in third place, was Kevin Kuhn who also made the run to Sodus Bay. He finished with five bass tipping the scales at 15.35 lbs. He also had the tournament lunker with a beautiful 5.40 lb. smallmouth bass.

In the winner's circle for the second time in as many tournaments, finishing fourth was Wade McClurg. He put together a limit of bass weighing 15.12 lbs.

Currently, we have a two way tie for the AOY race. Tune in for the next and final event at Sodus Bay on September 10th, 2022. It should be interesting.
