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 I had the great pleasure of fishing with my very first sales mentor, Steve Hollenbeck, who in 1980 took me under his wing as when I started my computer sales career with Sperry Univac. Steve is now a BassingBob member and is retired, living in the Gravois. Steve and I started fishing in his big cove of at the 4mm of the Gravois. We worked along side and behind docks and worked a few brush piles. Our first bites did not come until we got to the very back of the cove and saw lots of schools of gizzard shad with bass periodically busting the shad. We fan casted the buzz bait and several blow ups and boated a few short bass. We then moved out the of the cove and targeted the ends of some big isolated docks and got bit off the corners of these docks with the buzz bait. We moved to the main lake to see if we could leverage the wind and the heavy current generation from the dam, we had no bites on the main lake, the wind was brutal to try to manage fishing specific targets.
