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

Brrrrr, it was quite cold out on the water this afternoon, although when in the sun, I did not feel too cold, however the wind made it a bit cold on the hands. The fish were quite cold to all of my offerings too :). I fished this afternoon close to home in the Glaize. Most of the banks and points that I fished had a tremendous amount of wind, which is good, however, the wind pushed my boat so much that is was a bit difficult to sit the jerkbait still in and work it effectively in the water areas that my graph was showing fish. I caught some short bass on the jerkbait but the only keeper came on a jig in slack water along a channel bank in partly cove. I also had a big one (4-5 pound) come off at the boat while I tried to lip in into the boat, also a jig fish about 100 yards on the inside of a cove in party cove. Overall, from what I can see on my graph, the bass are either on the bottom or hanging in deep brush piles. There are some suspended bass about 15′ deep over 20+ deep water. Most fish that I am seeing are either on points, secondary points and points in the very back of big coves.
