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 I was able to fish for a couple of hours after the take off from the Bassing Bob Tournament. I keep believing that any day these fish are going to turn on, but it did not happen for me today and based on the weights of tournaments, it was not on for most fisherman. While I am seeing plenty of fish on the graph as well as bait fish, some more midway in the water column than I have seen for a while, the fish are just not biting. I did see some 40 degree water on banks that had sun for most of the day and these areas seemed to have more fish midway in the water column and just generally more fish and bait fish on the graph than in the 37 degree water that was often just yards away from the warmer water. As I think back on that now, I wished I would have just soaked those locations and my guess I the fish higher in the water column could indicate more active fish in the warmer water. Back to cold temperatures tomorrow…tough on the fish and the fisherman
