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

It was such a pleasure today to fish with one of Lake of the Ozarks most successful tournament bass fisherman, Bill Davenport. It is amazing to me the wealth of bass fishing knowledge that Bill possesses. Bill shared with me many of his keys to success catching keeper bass on Lake of the Ozarks in the winter time. Bill is an awesome jerkbait fisherman, he likes to fish well off the bank, indicating that fish can be caught shallow, but you will catch more big ones fishing out a bit deeper or away from the banks. He suggests using 8 pound test line for the jerk bait as it will be smoother to cast and get the bait deeper. While today the bite was really not on, I can understand why Bill is such a successful bass fisherman, he pays attention to every little detail, from his equipment, bait, bottom structure, types of rocks, wind speed, etc. It was a pleasure to fish with Bill. He gave me an RC Stick to try and I caught a 4.5 pounder using it and then after I dropped Bill off at PB2, I caught a 3.2 pounder.
