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

This morning I got on the water about 11:00 and fished until about 1:00, I was experimenting in a cove at the 23mm that I have never fished, looking for brush piles and learning the contours of the cove. I started in the shallow backs of the cove throwing the buzz bait with overcast skies with no bites, then worked the docks and watched my graph for brush piles. I finally caught a small keeper and a short fish off a brush on the worm in about 15′ of water. I marked several brush piles and I think that the cove can produce well in those brush piles. This evening I got back on the water after watching Germany destroy Brazil in the soccer world cup. I got on the water about 5:30 and fished til 7:30. The dam was pulling a lot of water late afternoon and evening, so I targeted main lake points and bluff ends from the 18mm – 15mm. The bite was on and the fish were where they are expected to be when water is being run through the dam this time of year. I had 5 keepers and a few short ones, some nice fish mostly in about 15′- 30′ of water on the Crock-o-Gator jig.
