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 Wayne and I were mostly searching for bedding bass in the backs of coves and small pockets as we prepare for a tournament on Sunday. We did stop to fish a few of the beds that we found and I simply watched in amazement as Wayne would work a bed for any where from 5 – 15 minutes before the bass would bite. Wayne has got to be one of the very best bed fisherman on this lake. Of the 8 or so beds that we stopped to fish, Wayne eventually got 5 of the bass to bite, all keepers. In reality we probably fished only about 2 hours while the rest of the time was spent searching for bedding bass. While there were not as many bedding bass as we hoped to find, there are several locked on beds and catchable with a lot of patience.
