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

After 3 weeks of ice on the lake and then a week at Tablerock Lake, it was good to be back on Lake of the Ozarks fishing. I spent about 1/2 of my time idling around the coves on the east side of the lake from the Glaize to the toll bridge, trying to find fish and bait fish, to hopefully figure something out to at least be fishing where fish are hanging. I cannot say that I really figured anything out as I did not get a single bite. However, with about 3 hours of watching the graph, I noticed that there are a lot if fish in the cove channels and creek channels, some suspended fish around secondary points and main lake points. Most of the big wads of bait fish that I found were on the bottom. I mostly fished way off the banks, sitting in 30-40 feet of water today, throwing the A-Rig slowly along the bottom and swimming on the top of off bank brush piles. I also threw the jig and jerkbait for a while, but no bites. I hope to fish most everyday this coming week (weather dependent). If any of you want me to try out a pattern, technique, bait, location, presentation, etc. Just shoot me an email at or
