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

Today was my first tournament fishing as a boater on Lake of the Ozarks. I felt well prepared as I had good days practicing on Tuesday and Wednesday, but the buzz bait bite and shallow dock bite was a bit slower on Thursday and Friday. However, I still had confidence in the patterns to get 5 good bites. After about an hour or so, the buzz bait had only produced 3 small not keeper Kentuck’s, so we swithed up to main points deep prior to hitting the shallow docks. No bites on the points, then we went to my first set of docks, which I had 6 bites on Wednesday, we had no bites, then our next row of docks also produced no bites on about the first 6 of 12 docks, so I decided to skip a bunch of them and go to the last two docks and if we did not get bit, I was ready to abandon that plan in favor of deep points and brush. However, our fate was sealed after I caught a 5 pounder (4lb 11oz) and then will caught a 4 pounder on those last two docks. So off to another set of docks we went, but stopped to hit some brush piles first, Will caught 2 12″ keeper Kentucky’s on the brush, we did not get bit at all on the next two stretches of docks, other than Will getting another 12″ keeper Kentucky. With time winding down, I had 1 and Will had 4, I put Will on some brush piles in the Glaze and he caught a keeper to finish his limit. Will qualified for Sunday’s with 9 pounds and finished 4th on the co-angler side, I finished 58th out of 105 with that one big fish. I qualified to serve donuts n coffee at take off Sunday and do some fun fishing. My brother Dave fished as a co-angler and finished in the top 20 so he fished on Sunday and cashed a check. Several of the Bassing Bob expert advisors finished in the top 20 and cashed checks, James Dill, Wayne Fitzpatrick, Roger Fitzpatrick and Dennis Berehorst (3rd place). Dion Hibdon won tournament reportedly fishing brush piles up the river. Denise Dill, BB woman’s expert, qualified for the second day and finished in the top 20 and cashed a check.
