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 Jack and I ran to the 8mm to begin fishing and we ran into the Gravois too. Part of our plan today was to check out water conditions and ice to report to you all in consideration of this weekends Bassing Bob tournament. We found that the water temperature in this part of the lake (8mm-6mm and Gravois) has leveled off with many other areas of the lake at 37-41 degrees, the 41 we saw was in the afternoon as the air started to warm a bit. We found the water to be more stained in this area than the mid lake area and the Glaize. Bait fish and fish on the graph seemed not existent. Due to the low wind and the fact that we could not locate bait fish, although somewhat overcast, we struggled to get bit. Only 3 bites all day. We also found that, as in the mid lake area, there is a thin sheet of ice about half way back in the coves that we fished. There is plenty of water to fish, including secondary points, etc., the more shallow areas do have ice. Hopefully this will change over the next couple of days as the air temps warm each day.
