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 I got started fishing about noon and fished until about 5. The bite was really tough, with the sunny sky and completely slick water. It took a couple of hours to get my first bite. The only keepers today were small, one on a Chompers Jig and the other on a stick bait. Both fish came close to brush piles in about 8′-10′ of water on shallow flats toward the backs of coves where the water goes from shallow to about 15′-18′ of water. My boat was in 18″ of water casting toward the shallow flats, fan casting toward brush that I could see on my graph. I am fishing a tournament tomorrow with Wayne Fitzpatrick, so part of the day I was graphing fish and bait fish to find areas that are holding fish.
