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, Denise Dill and I practiced for the Big Bass Bash that we will be fishing together. While we worked the majority of the day hoping to find the bait fish on the bluffs, which would produce a big bass bite, the bait fish just were not there yet throughout the north shore area of the lake. Our most consistent bite today came from secondary points with bait fish and shallow docks. While we know that this bite is a good one right now, we explored bluffs, bluff ends and bluff cuts today with the hope of finding that bite to get on, today it was not.

The really fishing report of the day was the catch of Joe Brantley, champion of the Central Pro Am this weekend. Joe matched his day one bag of 18+ pounds with another stellar day of 17+ pounds. With Joe’s 36 pounds total for Saturday and Sunday, he blew away the championship series field by 15 pounds. Joe reported catching his bass shallow 2′-10′ of water in the backs of coves and pockets flipping a jig. This bite has been on for big fish the past couple of weeks and will likely be a major consideration for Big Bass Bass big fish.
