Elite Anglers is a team trail that hosts largemouth and smallmouth bass tournaments throughout upstate NY. We currently have 90-100 members and average about 30+ boats per tournament. These teams are made up of good fisherman looking for a fun competitive trail. We have some of the stiffest competition in the area, yet this trail has always managed to maintain a fun atmosphere! Fish with son/daughter, wife or girlfriend. Everyone is welcome to fish the trail. We encourage members to print out the form, complete it and turn in at the first tournament. By having this done ahead of time, it will obviously free up some of your time the morning of the tournament. EVERYONE will need to fill out a membership form. This is to make sure we have correct contact information for everyone. In addition to your membership forms, a COPY of current insurance LIABILITY is REQUIRED for any boat used in any Schenectady Elite Anglers Tournament, points or opens. This copy will be kept on file with Schenectady Elite Anglers. Thank you for your cooperation.
There were a few rule changes last year, as agreed upon by the committee. The changes are in effect this year also:
1) There will be no throw out tournaments
2) Anyone not having a lock permit the morning of the tournament, on the river, will not be allowed to enter the lock chamber with other anglers who have a permit. You must wait for those anglers with a permit to pass the locks and then you can enter and obtain a permit. If another angler arrives while you are waiting to enter the lock, you must allow that angler or anglers access to the lock and wait for them to pass. This should alleviate the problems in the past of anglers with a permit waiting for others to obtain one. If anyone violates this rule, the punishment for the rule infraction is outlined in the CLUB RULES section.
Our annual club membership is $35.00 per angler. Our tournaments are $100.00 including lunker. At the end of the season we award trophies and plaques to the top 3 teams in points, lunker awards for both LM/SM bass, rookie of the year and/or most improved team and possibly inducta member/former member into the Hall Of Fame . The awards are handed out at our sit down dinner banquet. Club Rules are available from the link in the navigation on the left. Any other information about Schenectady Elite Anglers can be obtained by using the "Contact Club" link in the club navigation to the left. Membership form now available.
