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

Today was what I think of as my first day of practice for this weekend’s FLW BFL tournament. This is the first time that I will be fishing as a boater versus a co-angler and I am a bit nervous about it as there are so many great fisherman in this tournament. I started out the morning fishing in the upper Glaze area (my home turf so to speak) working the Crock-o-Gator Black buzz bait on big shallow rocks. I had several good blow ups on the buzz bait, but as I am practicing for the tourney, I am not setting the hook, just pulling it away from them and covering up the ends of my hooks. At least two of the blow ups were small keepers. I then started to work some of the coves toward the toll bridge, had one keeper off a brush pile, again with hooks covered, I was only able to see it come to the top, it was a 3+. Then I started to flip docks, working all the shady areas of the docks with the D-Bomb and Brush Hog on Waynes Head, I had several keepers, the 4 pounder got stuck so I do have a pic of that fish, I hope he still bites on Saturday. The 5+ pounder was the most fun, my bait was behind some chains in a dock slip, when I raised my bait to come over the chain he bit it, and came flying out over the chain, again as my hook was covered I did not boat the bass, but he was a donkey. It was a fun day. I hope they are biting like that for the tournament.
