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 got on the water about 2pm and man was the sun blazing today!! This was an afternoon that I really should have spent looking for bait in the backs of creeks and flipping docks, but the brush piles are still calling my name! This time of the year you can really fish both docks and deep structure so its a great time for anglers to be on the water. This afternoon i went fishing some brush piles in the glaze to start off, with no bites after the first hour and the sweat piling up on my shirt i decided to make a little run to the osage to cool off! I fished more brush on the osage and still no bites, i was a little surprised but at the same time i knew it was awful hot and it was afternoon when the bite usually does slow down. So I had a decision to make go flip docks or continue fishing brush, and you could only guess i stuck with brush! Believe it or not i went back to the same piles in the glaze that i fished earlier in the afternoon! I ended up catching 6 fish and two keepers in a matter of 30 minutes.So this tells you that just because you didn’t get a bite on a certain spot earlier in the day doesn’t mean to rule it out for the rest of the day. There are many times when im fishing a tournament i hit the same spots two or three times at different times of the day, its all a timing deal. I hope this tip helps you all out.
