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 Wins at Cayuga

John Carey solved the Cayuga puzzle on a very tough day of fishing to win the Southern Tier Bassmasters second points tournament of the season held Saturday July 26, 2014 launching at Dean’s Cove.

Carey’s limit of 5 bass weighed a respectable 13.24 pounds and was one of only 5 limits brought to the scales. Also indicating the difficulties of the day for the 25 competing anglers, only 4 weights topped 10 pounds. Never the less Carey collected $189.00 for the day.

In second place with 12.99 pounds was Bill Melick. His catch earned him $115.00. Melick has now taken the lead by one point in the AOY race with Kueka Lake coming up next month.

Third place and $68.25 went to Larry Commons for his limit weighing 12.39 pounds. In fourth place was Jeff Kilbury. His earnings were 47.25 for a 10.93 pound limit.
Joe Abt weighed in the lunker for the tournament, a 4.50 pound largemouth worth $100.
