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!!!

27mm and 19mm areas, targeting secondary points and steep banks towards the backs of cove, jerk bait was fished with a 7-8 count down.

Fishing Notes

Another tough day fishing in the mid lake area. While the water temperature is on the rise, the bite in this stretch around Tan Tara and also the mouth of Glaize to the toll bridge is just not yet. The water was extremely flat today, so the jerk bait bite was virtually non existent, so I threw a jig and COG Swamp Bug most of the day. The water in narrow long coves is a bit more stained while the larger open coves the water is pretty clear. The few bites that I had came on the jerk bait when there was a bit of chop on the water over about 10-12 feet of water off rocky banks.
