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

It is always an honor for me to fish with the best bass fisherman on LOZ, Marcus Sykora. As I mentioned in previous reports, he is a fishing machine. It is no secret that the pattern for big fish right now is large boulder and chunk rock banks. As the water level is still high, it is sometimes difficult to visually see these rocks, however, if you follow a bank from bluff ledges into a cove or see one rock sitting up in the water, you can be sure that that bank is what you are looking for. Our best bite today came very early on a channel bank with the big rocks in the lower Glaize, 3 nice keeper in about 30 minutes on one bank. The multiple fish bite in one location is something that has happened often this week. Therefore, if you are on a bank that you are catching fish, keep fishing it, or leave it and come back to it. Wind and shade seem to be a key as well, slight chop on the water worked great. We also had some good bites and blow-ups on dock cables, again as the water is high, many dock cables are slightly submerged, be sure to work your baits over these cables. Concrete pillars behind docks or on open banks produced a good bite today as well. The spinner and buzz bait caught the fish today, but other top water baits like the spook should also produce a big bite. Also, dropping a jig on those support concrete pillars should also catch those fish holding on that type of cover.
