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

I had a few quick furies with the sexy dawg that were mainly short fish way off the bank on points. Other than that I had to hit a lot of spots and occasionally ran into a quality fish. For me the topwater bite did not produce big bites, with one exception (but I failed to land a 4 or 5 pounder). My best fish came on a larger profile 1/2 jig and craw trailer with the shaky head worm coming next. I moved spots frequently and and occasionally ran into some big ones. I caught my second 6 pounder of the weekend on a secondary point about 1/2 way into a large cove. I had a solid 4 pounder and two small keepers that came off a main lake point. I was unable to catch keepers stacked up anywhere just yet.

I placed several brush piles around our condo dock over the winter and pulled some fish out of the brush in 10-15 feet of water as well as some shallow fish near the bank, but these tended to be short or marginal keeper fish.
