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 was fortunate enough to go fishing with my good friend Vern Jaycoxs. Today i filmed some footage of Vern stick bait fishing, so members stay tuned for the video. It will be uploaded to web site soon. The day couldn’t have started better! the first piece of bank we pulled up to Vern caught a keeper right away. Then we headed further back in the creek. The wind was blowing straight out of the creek heading towards the main channel, so Vern tucked the boat on the side of a secondary point so the wind wouldn’t blow us around. He threw back towards the wind and slowly retrieved the stick bait back to the boat. This spot was on fire! Vern caught 3 keepers in a matter of 15 minutes, one being a giant KY.At this point i had to put down the video camera and get a piece of the action! By the time we left this spot we had boated 6 keepers and a couple shorts. As the day went on the bite got a little tougher. Vern and i were really looking for new banks around the dam that i can fish for my Joe Bass tourney this weekend. It seems that these fish are wanting that stick bait paused, thats how are better bites came. Today was an awesome day. Not only did we catch alot of fish, every time im with Vern i learn something new that is very valuable.
