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

After getting skunked yesterday I decided to make a run from the Glaize to the Tan Tara area. The first thing that I noticed in that area was the water temperature was about 2 degrees colder than the Glaize and Toll Bridge areas that I had been fishing. The other thing that I noticed after two cast was that the fish were biting. It felt good to get that first bite after having zero bites yesterday. The bite continued for the 4 hours that I was out there fishing. I got on the water about 12 and fished until 4. When I first started fishing, the sun was shining, so I was fishing banks with some slight wind and sun beating on the banks, I caught about 4-5 fish in the first 40 minutes on that sunny bank. When the clouds rolled in the bite turned off for a while, but I was able to get three more short fish. I had 3 15″-16″ keepers on one stretch of bank and a 3+pounder on the secondary point at the end of that stretch. It felt good to finally have a consistent stick bait bite. My boat was sitting in 25-30 feet of water, casting to just off the bank, most bites came in 8′-12′ of water while the bait was dead sticked. Happy New Year everyone, please be safe. Bob
