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 a morning and afternoon of meetings today, I finally got on the water about 5:00PM, just in time for yet another thunderstorm with hail and lightning. I was on the water for 30 minutes, caught a big drum on a tube and missed one other bite. Then after waiting out that storm, got back on the lake about 6:30, again 30 minutes and another thunderstorm. So, today I caught no bass, however I was able to see a noticeable change in the water color when I was out the latter time, see pictures. The water in the Glaize and mid lake to the dam area has been quite clear the past weeks. These big storms should stain the water from slightly stained around main lake areas to stained-muddy in the backs of coves and extreme areas of the lake (river – above Hurricane Deck, upper Glaize, upper Linn Creek/Gravios). See the experts suggestions for stained water ideas. The stained water should warm quicker if we get some sun the next few days. The experts recommend throwing big spinner baits, black tubes, dark bigger jigs, wiggle wart and bigger dark/gold or white jerk baits in the dirtier/muddy water conditions. Also, areas that produce run off, like backs of creeks, drainage run off areas can be very good with a big spinner bait in the colored water.
