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

Today was a special day for me. Jim Burt a long time Bassing Bob member reached out to me earlier this week to hook up and fish together. Jim is an avid bass fisherman as well as a consistent tournament fisherman. Jim and I have a similar fishing background, having fished lake occasionally for many years and now on a regular basis, with the objective to simply get better, catch more and bigger fish and successfully compete in tournaments. Jim and I fished behind some condo docks in the Glaize to start and within the first 15 minutes Jim caught a nice three pounder. We proceeded to catch a 5 fish limit of keepers by 11:30. While not any giants, as a couple of ‘wanna be” tournament fisherman we both felt pretty good with catching 5 keepers and if in a tournament with plenty of time to upgrade the weights. It was so much fun to fish with Jim, not only is he a very good fisherman, but he is also a high quality individual, just as most LOZ bass fisherman are. I am looking forward to more fishing trips with Jim and some tournaments together as well. As for the fishing side of things, there are still good fish shallow, condo docks are the home to many nice bass that can be caught year round.
