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

You know the bite is tough when Wayne Fitzpartick, Owner of Fitz Fishing on Osage Beach and Successful Tournament Veteran, only bags 3 bass and two keepers. Today we fished brush piles with Crock o Gator jigs, Chompers Grub and Crock-o-Gator Swamp Bug, but the only bass boated were on the Megabass jerk bait. We did miss some bites in the brush and Wayne had one break off on the hook set using the COG Swamp Bug. The bass were just not in the mood to bite today, perhaps the drastic drop in water temperatures the past week (47-39) and the water generation that has dropped the lake quite a bit in just a few days. However, from what we can see on the graph, the bass are stacking up, they are around brush piles and typical winter spots in ditches, around channel swings and steep banks near deep water. Hopefully as they get comfortable with the change of the water, they will turn on in the next couple of days.
