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

Bassing Bob Comments: Crock-o-Gator Baits are MADE for the Lake of the Ozarks, you have to just get some and use em. Also, James is an amazing guide, to put his clients on big fish in the middle of the summer is an amazing feat. Book a trip with Jim and you will not only catch fish, but you will learn a lot from one of the best fisherman in the Midwest and FLW Winner.
