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

Today we explored many coves, a few in the Glaize, then from the Glaize to the 11mm checking spots for the AIA tournament tomorrow.
The bass were biting at every stop we made. We fished pockets in the glaize to start with a few males roaming the back of a flat. We fished behind some condo docks and got bit but were short fish. Many of the fish were caught were on or near secondary points with small rock. A funny thing happened today. Ben was on the phone, made a cast near a dock while on the phone, when he made that cast I managed to get hung up in a brush pile, i turned to let him know I was hung, up at the same time, while holding the phone, Ben sets the hook on a fish, “says I gotta go” drops the phone and lands a 6+ pounder!! It was quite the experience. Fishing was good today with about 16+ pounds. Hopefully it will be better tomorrow.
