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!!

Sincerely,
Bassin Rob!!!

Fishing Notes

Well our buddy Stacey says that the fish are flat out scattered now that the crappie spawn is over. Stacey is a well rounded crappie fisherman who is very good at keeping up with the crappie. Recently about two days ago he went out and grinded to get what he got. Stacey notes that after the spawn they tend to scatter. He has been finding crappie about 12-20 foot down suspended over brush. The other day he found all his crappie in 6 mile cove. He also found some fish suspended in about 15 foot of water that weren’t related to brush. these fish were over 30 foot of water but suspended at 15. Stacey tells me that the closer to the dam he got seemed like the deeper the fish got. Swimming the Shadolicious bait along sides of docks that had brush and shade on it also put a few crappie in the box for him as well.
