Next meeting November 29, 2023 on "Zoom", 7:00 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!

Kilbury on top at Seneca Lake!

Geneva, NY, September 09, 2023 - Once again, Jeff Kilbury tops the field of seventeen competitors with a five fish limit of largemouth bass weighing in at 18.96 lbs. His sack was anchored by a 4.47 lb. bass. Along with his win he collected 100 points and catapulted him into first placd in the Angler Of The Year race. Well done and congratulations on a stellar season!

John Carey finished in second place, weighing in a 5-fish limit of largemouth bass at 16.04 lbs. John's bag was anchored by the tournament lunker of 4.65 lbs.

Finishing in 3rd place was Brady Schoonover who amased a 5-bass limit tipping the scales at 14.74 lbs.

Rounding out the top four with a limit of fish registering 13.37 lbs. was Charlie Prince.

Seneca Lake has always been touted as a smallmouth bass "factory" but no smallmouth were brought to the scales at this event.

Our next event will be on Chautauqua lake on September 16th. This event is open to the public, launching out of Prendergast point. For more information click here.
