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 I continued to search for spawning fish on beds in preparation for a tournament on Sunday. Today was a bit easier to see the fish as there was more sun light than the past few days that have been too cloudy and windy. However, while I was able to find a number of bedding areas and beds, it was still not ideal for seeing whether there were fish on the beds or not. I did find a few good 4-5 pounders on some beds so I marked them on my graph and wrote notes about their location. I did not fish for any of these fish. I did notice today that the new beds that I have been seeing the last couple of days a bit shallower than when the water was down, the fish are coming up onto these beds, however these seem to be smaller fish than what I was finding last week. I did flip to these smaller shallower fish and they were very skittish, not really locked on the beds yet. The fish that I did catch today were on the Dirks jig and the Reaction Innovations Sweet Beaver rigged on a Fitz Fishing Bait Keeper Head. I also threw a 6″ lizard and Carolina Rigged brush hog, but no takers, however, I really did not fish very much today as I was mostly searching.
