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 was another practice day for tomorrows BWTSA tournament which I will be fishing with my good friend and avid bass fisherman from St. Louis Tim Ladd. This afternoon I practiced alone awaiting Tim’s arrival. After having a good day yesterday with the buzz bait, it was hard for me not to throw it a lot today, knowing that it can be a big bass bait. However, due to the sunny skies and light wind, I only had two keepers on it today. I did work many different baits that did produce some fish, the lizard and tube. I am beginning to feel that the bite behind the docks has become tougher with the ultra clear water, especially with calm water. So this evening Tim and I worked some rocky banks leading into/out of the spawning areas with moderate success. We did have 4 keepers bite in one cove, but we only boated one of them which came off a bed on the buzz bait. The other keepers that came undone were chasing the spook and biting the tube.
