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!

Johnson and Shamp Repeat on Conesus

It wasn’t a record setting limit but the results were the same. Rich Johnson and Jim Shamp did it again! With a respectable 22.93 pound five bass limit they repeated as champions of the Southern Tier Bassmasters annual Conesus Fall Open Team Tournament held Saturday October 18, 2014 sponsored by The 3-Legged Pig Restaurant. Their winning totaled $286.

In second place with 22.26 pounds was the team of Tucker Kautz and Jason Chase cashing in on a check for $143.

Evan Perry and Dave Soper rounded out the top three places with a 21.47 limit that contained the 5.73 pound tournament lunker giving them $143.

This concludes the tournament season for Southern Tier. The club would like to thank all the sponsors and fishermen who supported this season’s tournament. Enjoy the remaining fall season and have a safe winter.

See you next season!!
