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

All of the conditions seemed so right today for a good bite, however, I could not stick any good fish. I fished some bluffs from the 8mm to the Gravois, hoping that the bait fish would start emerging from the channel for a good bluff bite, but the bait fish are not there yet. I fished some long tapering points, there was bait fish on some of these points, but I only caught a couple of short fish. About half of my time today was spent fishing in the backs of coves. I am not too familiar yet with the big coves in that area, so much of my time was searching for bait fish in the backs of coves. When I found bait fish, I worked the docks with a brush hog and jigs, skipping under the docks, but no takers. The only consistent bite I had was fishing in the middle of the coves shallow running a rattle trap around the bait fish. I had one very good blow-up on a spook on the corner of a condo dock with wind hitting directly on the corner.
