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

From Ben:
Only got out for an hour today. It was so cold that the ice locked up all of my reels haha. Managed to get one keeper on the windy side of an isolated dock in a small cut at the 17mm. Also caught a short fish and Kentucky that might have been a keeper, all on the jerk bait. Water temp was 44, it dropped a whole degree overnight with the cold weather at the lake.

If you are fishing LOZ this week, please send me your fishing report to or call/text at 314-575-5545.
