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

Due to some request from BB members, today I spent my entire day in Cartright Cove at the 45mm of the Osage. I was a bit disappointed in my fishing performance today as Cartright has a lot of great water to fish. I for the most part down the right side of Cartright there are two channel banks that run pretty much the entire length of that arm with fairly deep water with many docks. The tops of the docks were generally sitting over 20-30′ of water with big rocks/and bluff rock on most of the banks. I primarily fished the entire row of docks down both sides of that arm and fished several of the lake cuts and secondary points. I was looking for brush along the docks, however I did not find nearly as much brush as I would have hoped to find along the docks or on the secondary points. This cove would be a great summer time cove with brush piles placed on and around those secondary points in 15′-20′ of water. The left side of Cartright set up pretty much the same as the left with a lot of docks, secondary points and deep channel banks. Every fish that I caught either came from the brush piles that I was able to find or on shady sides of docks and shady dock wells. I ran into Jim and Denise Dill on the water in Cartright, they indicated that they were not getting a bottom bite (that is what I was fishing) but rather they caught a number of short fish and some 3 pounders swimming a jig along side the docks. I did notice a lot of bait fish schools in the pockets and the shallow areas of the cove today.
