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

Today, I spent my time fishing and idling to mark brush piles in coves at the 17mm of the Osage. When I saw brush piles that seemed to hold fish, I stopped to fish and caught all but one fish today on the jig in brush piles from 10′-25′ deep. The majority of the fish that I caught today were toward the backs of coves around secondary points. Today was a bit of an exploratory day fishing as I am hoping to map many brush piles around secondary points and channel swings for the winter time jerk bait and jig season. Sorry, not pics for the website today as I left my camera in the boat :). I will be sure to upload them tomorrow. Hopefully tomorrow Ameren will start drawing the water down for the winter draw down, that should position the fish in more predicable areas on points and secondary points.
