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!

Melick Takes Keuka
and AOY Lead

Bill Melick took a commanding lead for Angler of the Year with his second win of the season at the Southern Tier Bassmasters third point tournament held August 23, 2014 on Keuka Lake.

Melick brought a 5 bass limit weighing 14.46 pounds to win $196.20. The win gave him a 7 point lead over Jeff Kilbury in the AOY race with only Seneca Lake left to fish in September.

In second place with a 13.83 pound limit was Larry Good. He took home $119.90. John Cary’s 10.10 pound limit gave him $70.85 for his third place finish. John Seijak rounded out the top four with a 9.93 pound limit good for a $49.05 check.

Noel Good made the right cast and landed the tournament lunker, a 4.28 pound smallmouth. That fish was worth $105.
