Next meeting November 17 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!

Carey makes it two in a row!

Geneva, NY, September18, 2021 - Sixteen anglers from Southern Tier Bassmasters met at the north end of Seneca lake, on a picture perfect day, for the final points event of the 2021 season.

John Carey, once again, displayed his prowess for finding the biggest fish of the day. John assembled a five fish limit of largemouth bass weighing in at 16.79 lbs.

Not far behind was second place finisher, Bill Martz. He anchored a five fish limit weighing 16.10 lbs. with a 4.43 lb. lunker of the tournament.

Finishing in third place, with a 5-fish limit, was Michael Laursen. His stringer weighed in at 14.34 lbs.

Rounding out the top four finishes was Kevin Kuhn with 5 bass weighing 14.30 lbs. His big fish wighed 4.32 lbs. Unfortunately, a fish care penalty cost him the 3rd place finish.

Don't put your equipment away for the season just yet. STBM still has three OPEN team events on the docket, the next being on Silver lake, Sept. 25. See the tournament page for additional events open to the public.
