Lunker of the year! 

6.70 lb smallmouth!

Attention NNBM Team Trail members...

With Covid cases spiking in the area I have decided to cancel the 2020 fall banquet.

Typically the plaques are handed out at the banquet. I am in the process of ordering the them. I will bring them to the spring meeting or, after they are done, you can contact me and make arrangements to come pick up your plaques. I will make an announcement when they are ready.

Also, per the club rules, the club director’s position is to be voted on at the end of the year banquet. Since we are not having a banquet, I offer the following. I would like to continue to serve as your director however, if a member wishes to run for the position you can contact myself or Brad Paradis before November 21st.

​On November 21st, if necessary, we will announce the candidates and take a vote.

​Robert Paradis 6.36 lb SM for lunker & 9th biggest fish ever weighed

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.

Bring the kids!

Stop by one of our weigh ins at our many tournament locations.  Be sure to bring the kids.  They are sure to enjoy watching all the big smallmouth and largemouth bass being brought in, weighed and released.
