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

Fishing the past week has been very frustrating, the fish are showing up on the graph, the bait fish are on the graph, the shad are visibly dying off and the wind has been about perfect. However, the fish just don’t want to bite as they usually seem to during this time of year and conditions. The only explanation that I have, short of my fishing skils, is that Ameren still has not drawn down the water to final winter levels, which when they do the fish should stack up a bit in their winter locations. Today, I stuck with the jig most of the day, fishing in and around brush piles when I saw them on my graph and worked slowly in the areas that I saw fish on my graph. I did throw the jerkbait and A-Rig for a while also, but no takers. The jig bites I got today were very very soft, just a bit of weight on the line in about 10-12′ of water.
