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

Ben Verhoef, the president of the University of Missouri Bass Club reported the following. Ben fished this evening from 5PM til dark.

Caught a ton of fish this evening, had a tough time finding quality fish though. Fished from the toll bridge to the 12mm. It Was a cool on the water -air temps in the high 60s, water temp was 81. The baitfish seemed to be more prevalent back in the coves so I targeted 10-15ft brush piles on secondary points. Keeper bites came off a 6.5″ Hags Tornado(pic attached) on a 5/8oz Crock-O-Gator shaky head. Swimming the bait over the brush piles produced the keeper bites. I also caught 2 small keepers on a chuggin spook. The spook fish were schooled up and busting through schools of small shad. I threw the spook next to the frenzy whenever the school would bust the surface. I attached a few pics of brush from the graph.

To talk more with Ben and/or pick us some of these baits, visit Ben or Wayne at Fitz Tackle in Osage Beach.
