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

This afternoon I marked about 15-20 brush piles in a cove at the 17mm of the Osage, focusing on brush piles that were around docks, condo docks in 10′-20′ of water. I also did some fishing in the very backs of the cove and cove pockets to see if there was a shallow bite, but I had no takers. During the tournament we started off on a main lake bank in the Glaze, Robbie landed a nice 4.57 pounder within the first 20 minutes on a worm in about 15′ of water. He did not feel brush during the retrieve so we are not sure of the fish was truly on brush. We then proceeded to the toll bridge area and primarily fished brush piles on the main lake and the brush that I marked during the afternoon, we had only some short fish in the brush piles. Our second keeper came on a main lake rocky point near a ledge in about 15′ of water. We finished the 3 keeper tournament with 6.57 pounds, I think that might of have been 4th or 5th place. The winning weight was over 11 pounds and second about 10 pounds.
