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 12:30 and fished until the thunderstorm started to roll in about 5:30. My intention was to run up past PB1, but thought I would check out the backs of a few of the big and medium sized creeks along the way, starting with party cove. I had no bites in party cove and proceeded up the Glaize, idling to the very backs toward the creeks that were coming in, working the jig on the rocky banks and the stick bait fan casting from the mouth of the creek back into the shallow area, working it fast, twitch twitch, twitch, 2 second pause and then again. The fish were hitting it on the twitch not the pause. One of the 5 pounders came on the jig in about 4′ of water on a laydown and the other came along the side of a dock in about 6 feet of water. The wind, sun/clouds seemed to help the bite today and perhaps the rain has washed in some nutrients, oxygen and warmer water that put the fish in a feeding mood near and around those more shallow areas. It was a fun afternoon fishing.
