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 takes Chautauqua
in a run-away

Prendergast Point, NY - Fishing a combination of outside weed edges and boat docks in the second points event of the season, Jeff Kilbury put his stamp on Chautauqua Lake with a 5-fish limit of largemouth bass tipping the scales at 17.21 lbs. and 100 points for the win. His sack was anchored by the second largest bass weighed at 3.80 lbs. As has been the case for most of this season on Chautauqua Lake, the fishing has proven extremely challenging, making Jeff’s accomplishment all the more noteworthy.

Second place honors went to Noel Good weighing a limit of bass for 9.83 lbs. Noel managed to find some off shore weed fish that were willing to cooperate.

Wade McClurg, weighing in a limit of bass at 9.78 lbs. finished in the 3rd place position. His bag was anchored by a 3.00 lb. largemouth.

Rounding out the top four places saw Bill Melick laying a 8.40 lb. bag of largemouths on the scales.

The tournament lunker was weighed by Tyler McClurg. His fish weighed in at 3.81 lbs. just edging out Jeff’s fish by .01 lbs.

We would like to thank Silver Lake Marine for their continued support and sponsorship of this event.
