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 got on the water about 11:30 and headed to the toll bridge. It was an absolutely beautiful day. The first bank I fished seemed to have a lot of bait fish however, no immediate bites as I soaked the stick bait over brush and near the bait fish. As I moved down the bank toward the back of the creek area, the water just kept warming up to 44 degrees. I caught the first bass, a short on with my boat in 6′ of water on a stick bait. As I moved out of the back area of the creek, I noticed several dying shad, so I dragged the Chompers Twin Tail Grub, rigged on Waynes Keeper Head (white available from Fitz Fishing and other colors from Crock-o-Gator Bait Company), I felt a slight tick on my line and bit of weight, when I set the hook I knew it was a quality fish, it kept making runs under my boat and finally I netted it. I did not put it on the scale, but I would guess it at about 3.5 – 4 pounds. The rest of the day, I caught two more, one keeper about 16″ and a short fish, they came from two secondary points that were very close to each other, I probably should have came back and hit those again, as I also caught two drum on the same banks. Overall I was satisfied with 2 keepers in 5 hours, as the bite has been very tough lately.
