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

Fished Saturday from about 8 to 5 from the 50 MM to the 45 MM. Water was cleaner then we expected and about 57-58 degrees everywhere. Caught my first fish (about 3 pounds) a little after 8 on a buzzbait behind a dock with some trash about 1/2 way back in the cove. Caught my second keeper – a smaller kentucky on a Space Monkey on chunk rock on the point.

My brother caught a fat Kentucky around 3 on Wiggle Wart on a main lake point about 9:30. Then we went a while without a keeper. Caught some 13-14″ fish behind docks flipping tubes and beavers. Caught a short on a jerkbait and spinnerbait. Missed three strikes on a buzzbait. We fished all over – outside edges of pockets, inside small pockets, channel banks, mixed rock, chunk rock, main lake points, flipped some docks, flipped and buzzbaited some brush – basically anything where the rock looked good (chunk, mix of softball and pea gravel) or close to a spawning pocket. Might have seen a bed or two but nothing on them. Just about every fish we caught was in 4′ of water or less though – just scattered without any pattern we could put together.

Finished our day in Cartwright Springs on a couple of channel banks later in the afternoon. We each caught a keeper on the same cast – one on Space Monkey the other on a square bill. Moved to another channel bank and caught two more keepers on a soft plastic. Ended the day with 16 fish, 7 keepers. Best 5 went about 13 (got to get a new scale – good one quit, the other isn’t real accurate).

It was partly cloudy most of the day and had some wind – but we couldn’t tell that either helped or hurt the fishing much. Threw the spinnerbait quite a bit and flipped a jig some without much luck on either.
