We;re an Orange County Club , TEAM BASSMASTERS , located in Newburgh NY and are currently looking for new members for the 2004 season . We currently have room for boaters and non boaters . we schedule 14 tournaments a year , 10 counting towards end of year awards . We also have 3 night tournaments scheduled as well as a 2 day event upstate .
We use the " TEAM" format where boater and non boater are NOT competeing against each other but both are fishing for total BOAT WEIGHT . We find this to allievate the " Back boating " of the non boater .
Our meetings are held the thrd Tuesday of the month at Lockwoods Tavern on Rt207 in Newburgh .
Any one wishing for more info can E Mail me and I'll answer all questions and supply more info

We DO fish some good waters and we do catch some very decent fish , but John , the guys are what makes the club . I don't know what is more sore . the arm from casting or the gut from laughing . We DO have fun . we're not cut throat and just out to enjoy the sport , the company and the outdoors .

I don't want to go blowing the horn of another club, but John K. and Dean R. are both gentlemen...that probably says a lot for their club.


....but! If you're looking for a different format than partners tournaments...I know of another pretty good club:D

I would like to say, My Dad and I fished the last tournament with these fellas and had a wonderful time. In 40 degree rainy weather.
Gentlemen, says it al!. We are looking forward with being members of this club in 2004 and beyond. I love tournament fishing especially when information is shared and not secretive. Believe me when you share information, you get information. It works on a positive note. Especially in these type of tournaments and clubs.

I enjoy letting people know what I am using. I want people to enjoy fishing as much as I do. That is when people will take care of, catch and release, destructive of personal property, littering, pollution. When people catch fish thier minds are on fishing not other things.

Thanks guys for taking us in.

Questions?

This is my first time venturing into this neck of the woods of NYBASS but a thread in 'tactics' piqued my curiosity.

I am always looking to explore new waters. I am a city boy who clamors for the country. How far outside the city is this club? Is it a reasonable driving distance from NYC? If not and you know of a club that is closer I would appreciate any info you might have. I am a non-boater.

Warwickfishman,

I'm also a member of this club; we fish various NY and CT waters. Some examples would be Lilly, Candy, Mahopac, Hudson river and a few others. We try and add new waters when possible and most waters are no more than an hour away, with the farthest one being about 1hr 45min.

We meet at a designated spot and travel to our tournament water together. Each non-boater rides up with their boater which makes the launch process easier.

As a non-boater and relative new comer to bass fishing I will admit that I was a little nervous about joining a club. But this club is filled with some great people who are willing to share what they know and have a good time.

If you or anyone else would like some more information please feel free to e-mail me at [email protected]

Anthony.

Wandy,

If you're in NYC, the Bergen Bassmasters in NJ is pretty close, being just on the other side of the GWB. They meet in Oradell, NJ and fish lakes in NY, NJ, and CT. We're looking for observers and you do not need to have a boat to fish. It's a great way to learn some new techniques and fish some different waters trying out a club before actually joining.

Check out the website at the bottom of my post and let me know if you have any questions. the next meeting is Thursday January 15th at 8pm at the Oradell Town Hall, Kinderkemack Rd, 2nd floor.

Thanks Mark,

I am definitely going to check this out. What is an 'observer'? My goal is not necessarily to learn some new techniques but to expand my fishing horizons somewhat, meet some likeminded anglers and tap into my competitive side.

Happy New Year!

Observers

Wandy,

Observers are simply guys who not club members that are registered with the club and thus allowed to participate in our club tournaments. We have a max membership of 36 so we usually have around 5-8 observers who are invitied to fish as riders with a few of our boaters. This helps not only virtually eliminate "flipping" but also allows new anglers to be introduced to the club before becoming members.

Observer costs are greatly reduced from club members. It's only $42 a year (mostly for BASS dues, etc.) and then $5-$10 optional fees for the tournament. the drawback is that you do not hold place in the tournament nor year to date standings. Other than that, observers are usually invited to join in any other club activity.

Our next meeting is on the 15th. Let me know if you are interested in attending to check us out. Also, talk to Woody. He was a n observer with us and now has moved on to full membership status.

Mark
