Our Club was founded in 2003 to establish a team tournament series to further the enjoyment of competitive bass fishing. Boat limits are five bass, smallmouth and/or largemouth, and anglers can only use artificial lures-live bait is prohibited.

Tournaments are open to only club members, however you can apply to join the Northern New York Bassmasters by paying the association's annual dues of $50 per/team (additional $30 team lunker pool if you are interested)  & an entry fee to enter a tournament.  Membership must be submitted 5 days prior to the start of a tournament to fish and all members not signed up prior to the start of the 1st tournament will pay late membership fees, including alternates.
