Barth is the 2019 STBM
Angler of the Year

Cuba, NY, March 14, 2020 - The Southern Tier Bassmasters Club marked the close of another successful fishing year with its awards banquet on March 14th at Moonwinks Restaurant in Cuba, NY. Many members and their spouses were in attendance as well as several club guests as club member Don Hallock served as the emcee of the club’s 21st annual ceremony.

With his second AOY award in 20 years, member Ted Barth was recognized with the club's AOY jacket for 2019.

As the only angler to finish the season with 5-fish limits in every qualifying event, Barth amassed 388 points out of 400, besting the rest of the field. Barth said it had been a long time coming to get back on top. This club has some of the best club tournament anglers and the competion is top notch. A lot of things need to fall into place and a little luck doesn't hurt, either.
