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

Where have the Crappie gone? I went out with Vern today about 10:30. We headed back to the Glaze where we were able to catch quite a few crappie last week. The past couple days we have had a bit of a colder front come through that really pulled these crappie off the bank. Today warming up a bit i was hoping we could get a good bite on the pea gravel banks in the spawning pockets. Well the crappie just haven’t got back on the bank yet. The past two days this pattern for me has just not worked. Vern and i managed to catch a few nice ones but there was never multiples on the bank. We fished the lower glaze from the 1mm to the 2mm. I do have some good news!!! Wayne owner of Fitz fishing and our buddy Jim Verhoef have been catching the crappie really well in the evening. I have not tried this but anxioud to do so. They caught about 50 last night fishing over the top of brush from 10-20 feet down. Using a crappie jig called Stinger Shad i will add a phoyo of it at the bottom. They caught all there fish from 6-8 pm. Jim actually caught one Giant crappie that i will also add a photo of. If anyone else has recent reports please do share!! thanks guys!!
