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 only able to get on the water for a few hours this afternoon from about 4:00PM to 7. I caught several small fish, most of them on the spinner bank some of the bites were right on the bank and others were off the bank about 10-15 yards. My graph was loaded with fish, including big schools of crappie. I threw a lot of baits but just could not get any big bites. I got off the water about 2 minutes before a huge thunderstorm passed through. I continue to give the buzz bait at least 30-45 minutes effort each day, last spring I had some incredible days with the Crock-o-Gator Buzz Bait. I have been throwing the Dirks jig quite a bit the last few weeks with good success. However, today, I modified a Crock-o-Gator jig, by trimming some of the strands to give it a thinner look and smaller profile, similar to the Dirks Jig and had several small fish bite it.
