Club History
Twenty years ago, SouthShore Bassmasters was organized for members to build friendships in the sport of competitive bass fishing and for experienced members to teach newcomers how to catch bass. SSBM also sends qualified members to compete against other clubs in the Mass Bass State Championship in hopes of advancing to divisional and national events. Today those fundamental goals still remain. 

We have a good mix of “young guns” and “old veterans” which makes for some enjoyable events. Good sportsmanship and camaraderie are highly valued qualities we seek in new members. We fish mainly in the waters of Cape Cod and Southeastern Massachusetts, with an annual two day tournament typically held out of state at the location of the Mass Bass State Championship. If you like to fish for Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass in the New England area and have similar goals about bass fishing competitively then we’d like to invite you to join our club. We have limited openings for boaters and non-boaters alike. For information about joining Southshore Bassmasters, please contact Club President Bruce Veras at bveras@msn.com.

Where does the club fish?
We fish mostly in southeastern Massachusetts but generally have at least one out-of-state tournament (typically the Club Championship). We make an attempt each year to fish at least two different bodies of water than the year before in order to keep improving our abilities and learning to fish new water.

What kind of boat do I need?
If you want to join the club as a boater, your boat must be at least 16' in length, have console steering (no tiller models), have a working livewell and kill switch, and have liability insurance coverage for at least $300,000.

What kind of gear do I need?
Your rods and tackle are up to you, but typically a minimum of three rods of various types will do. Three critical items that you will need are:
-A life jacket (PFD)
-Rain Gear
