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

Guys im very sorry i haven’t had much time lately to track down some crappie, we have our new and improved magazine coming out June so a lot of my time is being spent on it. However i have received some tips for some of the locals i talk to about crappie. This one in particular went out the other day when we had the strong wind all day. Matt reports getting back in the coves to hide from the wind. He searched for awhile with his graph, he admits it took some time to find them but once he did it was on!!! the fish he caught were suspended in about 5 -8 foot of water that had deeper water beneath them. He used a cork and live minnows to catch these fish. I will be getting out in the next couple days to really dial in what they are doing. I also have a good crappie report to post later this evening from our good friend Stacey Helton. Stacey is always on the crappie so stay tuned for the report that will be up this evening. Thank you guys, and feel free to share your crappie reports with me id love to post them or just interact with you members. Email me at
