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!
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
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.
