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

It was a tough day fishing as the wind was so strong, the main lake had 4-5 swells which made it difficult and dangerous to run in order to hit the tournament locations that we had mapped out. Our first bite of the day did not come until almost 11:00. We caught several short fish with a small keeper off a chucky rock bank, another off a sea wall in between docks and the 3.68 pounder on the buzz bait about 10 yards off a sea wall in open water. We could not run much so we tried to maximize the areas we fished, by fishing the backs/shaded areas of docks, secondary points with wind and shady/rocky banks with slight chop. The winning weight for the tournament was 22 something caught next to PB2 on a buzz bait. The weights dropped considerably from the PB2 bag. I think we weighed in just under 8 pounds.
