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!!!

Toll bridge, 16-15mm of the Osage. Rocky points and rocky banks just inside of main lake points. Jerkbait presentation was 3 twitches then sit for 15 seconds, jig was reeled slowly across the bottom and the spinner was slow rolled keeping in about 6′-8’m of water column.

Fishing Notes

Today I fished with Ben Verhoef (Mizzou Bass Fishing Club President) in the toll bridge area from the 15mm-16mm. The water was rather calm on secondary points and creek banks that we wanted to fish, so we sought out shade on banks that had slight wind and chunky rock near main lake and secondary points. We caught some small ones in the jerkbait, jig and spinner. The only good keeper came on a jerkbait over about 12 feet of water out about 20 yards from the bank. The water temp by the toll bridge was 46-49, a full couple of degrees warmer than the Glaize, so when there was wind, I threw the spinner and got bit.
