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!!

Bassin Rob!!!

Fishing Notes

Today the fish seemed pretty predictable. With the overcast sky’s and slight wind, there were many patterns to produce fish. The biggest fish are getting shallow in the very backs of coves with bait fish, the large gizzard shad in the backs of coves produce the biggest bass. Today, the majority of my fish came in 3′-8′ of water in the backs of coves around the last couple of docks in the cove. Skipping/flipping a 1/2 oz Crock-o-Gator (COG) Jig in brown/purple with a COG Ring Tail Trail worked very slowly under docks worked great today, however, I had two big fish, 4+ break off on me around the docks in particular in the front of docks right off of the dock brace. A black plastic zoom trick worm pegged to a 3/8 oz weight skipped under shallow swim docks produced the best big bite, the KVD Sexy Dawg produced two keepers, one shallow in the flats just beyond the last shallow dock in a cove and along wave breaks with wind produced keepers and some very good top water blow-ups. The DT-16 crank bait also produced bites and some small fish run over brush piles.
