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 my son Rob and I did not get on the water until about 5:00PM and we fished til 8:30PM. We started out in a cove with condo docks and residential docks that are protected from the wind, etc. with good spawning rocks, etc. We went in and out of about 8 docks with only a couple of short fish. However, we were seeing some pretty good sized bass just swimming around and some fish on beds. It seems that this last group of spawners have moved up shallow and either just getting on beds or are on beds. Generally this second wave of spawning bass are smaller, however there are some pretty good ones getting shallow right now. After not doing too well on one bank, we moved to the other side of the cove with similar docks/structure, I flipped the Crock-o-Gator Shaker Head with the Bruised Banana Trick worm on it under a walk way and my line immediately started to move toward the back of the dock, when I set the hook I knew it was a good one and it was, 5.5 pounder. We fished that area a bit more with no bites, then we moved to the back of a large cove with open banks, we had many bites and two more keepers on secondary points in 4′-8′ of water sitting off the point and open banks around them about 20 yards of so off the bank. We had lots of bites on the Shaker Head with the Trick Worm and several bites on the Dirks Jig, which you can get exclusively at Fitz Fishing in Osage Beach.
