Good Ole Boys Bass Club of CNY

Our membership is located in several counties surrounding Syracuse, NY.  Every year we hold our tournaments on the beautiful waters of New York State.  We are affiliated with B.A.S.S. and NYS Bass Federation.

2018 Good Ole Boys Tournament Schedule is posted on our Tournament Schedule Page!!


The Good Ole Boys Bass Club will be making a change to its tournament format for the 2018 season.  We will be moving to a PRO/AM format.  What does this mean?  There will be two divisions, boaters and non-boaters.  Boaters will be competing against boaters and non-boater competing against non-boaters.  Each angler weighs up to 5 bass for his/her total weight.  We will continue to have pre-tournament draws, pairing a boater with a non boater.  Both divisions will have guaranteed payouts.  It was voted to structure the payout as follows:

If we have 6 or more non-boaters in a tournament:

1st Place Boater –                35% of total purse

1st Place Non-Boater –       25% of total purse

*If Non-Boater has the heaviest 5 fish limit of both divisions, they will be given 35% of total purse and 1st place Boater will be give 25% of total purse*

2nd Place Boater –               20% of total purse

2nd Place Non-Boater –      10% of total purse

3rd Place Boater –                10% of total purse

Big Bass will be awarded to the heaviest bass weighed for the day.


If we have less than 6 non-boaters in a tournament:

We will fall back to paying the first 5 places plus Big Bass

1st Place Angler –                35% of total purse

2nd Place Angler –                25% of total purse

3rd Place Angler –                20% of total purse

4th Place Angler –                10% of total purse

5th Place Angler –                10% of total purse

Big Bass will be awarded to the heaviest bass weighed for the day.
