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

This evening Rob and I fished the Thursday night tournament out of PB2. This is a really fun tournament with a 3 fish limit, take off at 6:30 and weigh-in at 10:00PM. After a pretty good night of practice on Wednesday night Rob and I decided to stay in the lower Glaize and target secondary points and the banks leading out of spawning pockets. Rob committed to the spook while we had light and caught about 4 small keepers and some shorts. I caught a good 3.5 pounder on the Shaker Head in the first 30 minutes or so, we had a small limit by dark and culled one time. We knew we needed to upgrade to be in contention for a check. At dark Rob and I started to cover some water with the black/blue spinner bait. At about 9:15 I caught a nice 4.5 pounder, it was barely hooked so we were lucky to get it in the boat. We had a few more short fish and finished the tournament with 10.06 pounds for 3 fish limit. The winning weight was just over 11 pounds with second and third place just ounces ahead of Rob and me. It was a lot of fun, the fish were not constantly biting, but it was consistent enough that we felt good about our game plan. We just needed that 3rd big one to cull out a small keeper. The spook and the spinner bait are good baits to go after some big ones so we felt good about getting that kicker, it just did not come tonight.
