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

This morning I had the great pleasure of fishing with The Legend, Bill Davenport. As many of you may know, Bill is a specialist in deep structure fishing, Bill has won numerous tournaments since 1979 and currently is Marcus “The Champ” Sykora’s tournament partner. This morning, Bill’s and my plan was to get on the water early, 6:30 with the intent of doing a bit of fishing, an hour or so aggregate but to identify some good locations that need brush piles. It is my desire to start sinking brush piles, as many of you know, brush piles, docks and rocks are the primary structure/cover on LOZ. Just as the Fishing News article by Bill indicates, pea gravel banks with little to no structure on channel swings are the best locations for brush. So Bill and I identified several locations in the Glaze that sets up that way. After the Glaze I plan to brush up other areas of the lake over the coming year. During the brief time that we fished, Bill amazingly hit every single brush pile, mostly sitting in 25-30′ of water and making long cast to a bank landmark, then pulling the bait back to the brush. Bill had several bites, caught a couple of keepers and short fish, I had two bites and caught no fish, another pattern that I need practice. After dropping Bill off at about 10:00, if finished the day sinking brush piles.
