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 mixed it up a little bit. I crappie fished meanwhile looked for spawning bass. Ben and i have a big Joe Bass Tournament on Saturday we are leading the division and we want to keep it that way! We feel that fishing for bedding fish will be our best bet. Ben and i are not that seasoned in this technique but you got to learn at some point. During the big Bass Bash i searched and searched for bedders but couldn’t find any real big ones, but i did find and caught alot of solid tournament keepers. On this day i marked a few bigger fish and practiced on a few smaller ones. Sight fishing is quite deceiving, some fish that look really small are actually keepers this gave me more of an idea of what to look for. I fooled around with what i thought was small males that weren’t even keepers then when i caught them i pulled them out and measured them and they were 15-16 inch keepers. With sight fishing you really want to find the fish that are locked on the bed. If they swim away over and over it will be hard to catch them. The ones that stay right on the nest are easier to catch. You just have to keep throwing your bait in at them to make them mad, and they eventually bite!! This is not my strong point in fishing but it has become an addiction trying to learn.
