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 special day fishing for me, one of my childhood best friends that I have not seen for 40 years, Greg Noonan, his wife TJ and sister Melinda came to the lake to visit for the weekend. After 40 years, it turns out that Greg has the same passion for bass fishing as I do. So while, most 4th of July vacationers were water skiing, jet skiing and coving out, we all fished. We fished for a couple of hours in the morning from 8:00-10:00 without a single bite, even though we were seeing plenty of fish on the graph in 15-25′ of water on main and secondary points. I the afternoon, we fished in and around the no wake area between the Osage and the Glaize. We started off targeting brush piles around docks, with only one hook up on a black n blue jig. After working a cove channel bank, we got our first keeper in shallow brush with a small bit of shade on the trick worm, we then fished a long tapering point sitting the boat in 30 feet of water and casted into 10-15′ and we caught several short fish as well as another nice 3 pounder on a 1oz jig, stoking the jig off the bottom. In the evening we got our boat positioned for a fireworks display in the Glaize, Greg continued to fish, downsized his bait to a COG Ring Craw with a bullet weight, and on his second cast caught a nice 16″ bass. With the satisfaction of catching a night time keeper, we all put down our rods and enjoyed some nice 4th of July fireworks. It was great to see Greg and fish with him, we felt very lucky that not only could we safely fish LOZ on a major holiday but we caught 10 bass and 3 nice keepers.
