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

Today, Bassing Bob expert Jack Uxa and I fished in the Anglers in Action Bass Challenge. We finished 4th place for overall weight and 5th place for big bass competing against 100+ other boats. Our 4th place weight was 19.87 pounds and our big bass was 5.93 pounds. Our approach was very simple, we just followed what the bassing bob experts suggested from the monthly fishing report video posted on Buzz baits behind docks in the top one third of a cove from the main lake. Secrets to success today that any angler can follow and executie:

1. Hire Jack Uxa, Jack’s Guide Service. Jack always knows how to track the fish movement and what baits will catch em. Fishing with Jack prior to a tournament will put you on the right track to catching a big bag.

2. Use Crock-o-Gator baits. Buzz baits, jigs, spinners and shaky heads. Crock-o-Gator Baits are created specifically to catch big bass on Lake of the Ozarks. The majority of the big bags and big bass were caught today on Crock-o-Gator Head Knocker buzz baits. There is no better buzz bait for LOZ bass than Crock-o-Gator.

3. Visit Fitz Fishing Tackle and Supplies in Osage Beach. Talk to Wayne Fitzpatrick the owner, he has more knowledge about catching big bass on LOZ than most of us could ever hope to have. Wayne will always share with you what the big ones are biting on and in what locations/patterns. Wayne is the very best expert to catch big bass that I know.

Finally, I have thank Marcus Sykora, I call Marcus “Super Stick”. I have benefited over the past few weeks from learning from Marcus while fishing with him. Marcus is big bass magnet, he simply knows the patterns and structure that they will bite at the varying times of the year. Marcus has taught me a ton about catching big bass on LOZ. Fishing with Marcus is like fishing with a bass catching machine. Marcus and his partner Bill Davenport, won the event today with 22+ pounds of bass.

As we all know, bass fishing can be very humbling. While I enjoyed some good success today, thanks to listening to the bassing bob experts and input from Marcus. I fish tomorrow in Anglers in Action Team Trail event, I just hope that Ben Verhoef (Mizzou Bass Fishing Club president) my fishing partner can figure out the fish tomorrow as Jack and I did today.
