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

Another tough day fishing. While I was only on the water for 2.5 hours from 3:30 – 6:00 PM, I could not figure out a pattern, in spite of what are great conditions, overcast and good wind. Bait fish in the coves I fished today did not seem to be present in all coves and did not seem to be all the way at the backs of coves. Rather the bait fish were mid way back and in the center of the coves, not on banks or shallow. I did see in a couple of coves the big gizzard shad about 25-50 yards inside of coves over about 12-15′ of water. The fish did not seem to want to chase today as I threw crank baits, swim baits and buzz baits in consideration of the good wind. My short fish today all came on secondary points on the jig and worm worked slow along the bottom. Although I was seeing schools of bait fish, there was very little busting of the shad on the surface. Corners of docks with wind did not produce for me today. Tough October fishing. If you have any suggestions or have a fishing report for today, please email me at or post on Bassing Bob Forums. Back on the Osage tomorrow and likely the Niangua on Thursday.
