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 my son Rob and I fished the BWSTA tournament. There was about 40 boats. We ran to the lower end to fish the clearer water that is slightly warmer than other parts of the lake. The first stop was a small cut close to the main lake in a big cove, we were Rob caught a couple of shorts there, ran to a creek channel bank toward the back of a cove and Rob caught 3 keepers in about 20 minutes on the stick bait. We ran to another back end of a cove and I caught a keeper, then moved to similar banks in coves and continued to catch fish. We had a limit of bass by 11:00, so it was time to upgrade. I started to throw the A-Rig and Rob stayed with the stick bait all day. I caught a few keepers on the A-Rig, the best being right at 4 pounds off the top of a brush pile. We ended the day with Rob catching 6 keepers on the stick bait, I had one keeper on the stick bait and 3 on the A-Rig. We finished the tournament with 14.73 pounds, just one place out of getting a check. The winning weight was 18.73 pounds and big bass was a 7.28 caught by Jamie Enyard, the winner of last years Big Bass Bash and Bassing Bob member. Rob and I had a fun day catching a lot of fish and 10 keepers.
