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

FIshed most of the morning in the backs of coves fishing with buzz baits and D Bombs and Wayne’s creature jig with minimal success. Caught 2 short fish on buzz bait and 1 small keeper on D Bomb. We backs of all the coves were filled with small baitfish. No bigger gizzard shad. With only an hour and a half left of tourney with only 4 fish all day. We threw almost everything in the boat at them before we found a good pattern of a weightless fluke along the edges of shallow docks. The main key was fishing very slow. A few short twitches and then let it sink very slowly near the corners. Fish would normally hit after 5 seconds of slow fall.We finished with 4 keepers and 1 nice fish we lost at the boat. If I only would have figured out the pattern sooner. So hopefully this helps everyone else out.
