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!

John Carey is honored at annual awards banquet!

Cuba , NY , March 10, 2018 - The annual 2017 awards banquet kicked off at Moonwink's Restaurant in Cuba, NY.

We had a great turnout to celebrate our 20th anniversary with current and invited past members, as well as junior members, parents and guests.

Many of our junior club members and sponsors were honored with the evening culminating in the award for the 2017 Angler Of The Year.

John had 5-fish limits in every qualifying event for a total weight of 55.95 lbs. and a score of 395 points.

In his acceptance speech, John explained how everything needs to go just right at every event with a little luck thrown in. He definitely had one of those years!

Congratulations, John, on a super year!!
