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

Today was another tough day searching for beds due to the overcast skies, choppy water and the rising water. I was able to see several new beds shallower with fish, however the new fish that have come onto these beds seem to be a bit smaller than the fish last week. It was great having my son Robbie fishing with me as I searched so to see what the fish would bite. The fish were biting the jig much better than anything else. The Dirk’s jig, which can be purchased only at Fitz Fishing in Osage Beach got bit consistently throughout the afternoon around spawning areas off docks and some secondary points. The lizard caught a couple of fish but not many. We also threw the tube, a senco on a shaky head and jerk bait.
