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!!!

Party Cove at 4mm of the Glaize, fishing creek channel banks focusing on depth changes and channel swings.

Fishing Notes

On Friday night at our experts roundtable, Wayne Fitzpatrick and Dion Hibdon both talked about fishing subtle depth changes along creek channel banks for fish holding in the deeper pools this time of the year. So, I thought I would go try that today and it really did work. While I did not pull out any hawgs, I did have a rather consistent bite. A lot of my time was focused on watching my graph for contour lines that would indicate such a change and watching the depths. As party cove in the Glaize is a very big creek, with multiple creeks feeding into it and hit has no docks, it provided me a great location to spend the entire day to check this out and try to learn how to find these spots. I fished the cove from the very top point all the away around all banks to the other point, with the exception of the back flat banks. I did also fish this pattern for the last 30 minutes in what we call prison cove a the 1mm of the Glaize, just fishing one channel bank that I remembered had a few of those deep holes and caught a couple there too. I’m pretty excited to have found this little tip for winter fishing, especially for those days that the jerk bait bite is just not happening.
