Bassing Bob Members,

Hello everyone I hope you are all doing well, and fishing when its not arctic out!! I wanted to give you all an update on Bob and his health. As most of you know Bob underwent heart surgery January 3rd in St. Louis. The heart surgery was a huge success! Though, during early recovery we did unfortunately have a few setbacks. We now have him at the rehabilitation center where he will have to spend some time to get strong again. Bob is in great spirits and is more motivated than ever to get back to the place he loves! If anyone of you have any questions and or just want to talk fishing feel free to reach out to me or Steve Heitman. Most the time you guys know where to find me at Fitz’s. I will do my best to update Bobs status regularly. Thank you all for always being supportive of Bassing Bob, and Bob himself!!

Sincerely,
Bassin Rob!!!

Fishing Notes

Today was another pre-tournament practice day. While I caught some fish in 4 hours, I was not able to hook up with any big keepers, just a couple of 16″ keepers. Today I mostly worked brush piles, tried some secondary points leading to the backs of creek channels and did a lot of running and not fishing, searching the backs of coves for the large gizzard shad and signs of bass hitting these schools. I also tried many different baits today to see if the fish were wanting a bait moving or on the bottom. While, I did not catch enough fish to draw any specific conclusions, most fish came with the bait moving/swimming, only one bite dragging the bottom, which is different from the past couple of days when the quality fish seemed to be shallow and eating soft plastics on the bottom.

Tomorrow, I fish with one of Lake of the Ozarks best bass fisherman, Marcus Sykora as we both prepare for the weekend tournament.
