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

This afternoon I ran to the 55 mile marker and started fishing in a couple of small coves, with one short bite in the very back of a cove with a small cut, the fish was on wood in about 3 feet of water. Then I fished several bluff cuts in the area, fishing 4-10′ of water with the tube and jig, I had one short one bite the jig. I also threw the jerk bait on the bluff end points, but not bites. Then I fished for a couple of hours in Proctor Creek cove. I flipped the tube around and behind docks and on creek channel banks. My best and most consistent bite was on the black tube along banks within subtle little cuts/bank transitions. These are the little half moon looking areas of a bank, it seemed that my graph showed most fish in these areas. I also saw a lot of fish on top of brush piles in about 10-15′ of water. However, I did not fish for these fish as I was looking for a shallow bite on the banks.
