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

After not having very good success in the lower Glaize the past few days, I ran to the Tan Tara area to check out a couple of creeks that I had some good success last week. I got on the water about 2:00 and fished until 5. The creeks that I wanted to fish were frozen in the back areas that I hoped to fish, so I fished these creeks toward the upper third closer to the main lake. The bite was slow, I threw the jerk bait and jig, but my only bites came on the jig worked very slowly on the bottom. In the last 30 minutes I finally located a good amount of bait fish in Crabtree cove, directly across from Tan Tara island. The heavy concentration of bait fish were close to the bottom on the creek channel banks about a third back in the creek/cove. It seemed that their were bass close to the bait fish on the bottom in 20′-30′ of water. I fished for them with the jig and slow rolling the A-Rig, but only caught one keeper KY.
