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 was a fun day fishing. While I did not snag any big hawgs, at the least I had a consistent bite on the Crock-o-Gator Swamp Bug. I am rigging the Crock-o-Gator Swamp Bug on a 1/2 oz Crock-o-Gator black shaky head and a chompers 1/2 oz stand up head. The bite is pretty consistent on shallow flats, shallow bluff cuts around some type of wood in 3-7 feet of water. I also had a wiggle wart bite today on small rock and pea gravel banks. Water temps seem to be the key. Most of the upper areas of major creeks, Glaize, Niangua, Linn and Gravois have warmer water temps than other areas, 44-55 degrees depending on the creek. The shallow flats with small rock produced best for me today on creature baits and jigs. Also, it has been reported that in the colder water, the jerkbait and A-Rig are producing on deep structure and brush piles throughout the lake, in particular from the toll bridge to the dam on secondary points, however, brush seems to be an important factor.
