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

As I mentioned in yesterdays report I am practicing for a fishing outing tomorrow with Brent Frazee, Outdoor Writer from KC Star and Jim Divincen, Executive Director of LOZ Tri-County Lodging. Since we plan to fish the Glaize today I worked many spots to see where I can feel confident about getting a bite. As soon as I would get a bite in a specific location, I would leave that spot, either my moving from the point to the very back of cove or move to another area all together. I got bit on every spot that I fished, however just as yesterday, when I was trying many different baits, I only had one small keeper. I did have a giant fish, must have been 6-7 pounder come off after the hook set, the fish surfaced jumped and threw the jig. Unfortunately I have no pics of the bass, however, I was fishing in a pocket under a condo complex with on-lookers from the condos, they were directing me to where they were seeing fish from their vantage point, it was pretty cool actually. I will go back after that fish tomorrow. Today’s bite was primarily on the jig and C-Rig with boat sitting in 3′-8′ of water and fan casting around secondary points and backs of spawning pockets. I had a few blow ups today on the Crock-o-Gator Head Knocker Buzz bait and one short one caught on the buzz bait.
