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.
We extend an open invitation for anyone
to join us. A boat and experience are NOT NECESSARY!
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
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.
