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 i got out about 9:30am. I went out with the intentions to catch a pile of Crappie! That didnt happen! I started in chimney cove with word that its been good fishing in there as of late, but i struggled in there. I was targeting the bank indentations like i have been, casting right up to the bank and slow rolling the slab buster bait with a 1/16 oz jig head with a small spinner on it back to the boat. I was able to catch two small ones using this method, but i expected more. I really think this cold front that came in really knocked some of these crappie off the bank. The water temp had dropped for 62-63 to 58-59. Sometimes these water temp changes really take a toll on fishing. After scratching my head trying to figure them out i decided to call it quits but on the way back in i decided to hit one more spot. I pulled into pog hollow there, which is right by the toll bridge. I found a curve or indentation in the bank inside a pocket. I threw to the bank and caught one right away!!! so i spun the boat around and caught 5 or 6 keepers in a matter of minutes!!! These crappie were tucked in this pocket and were protected by the wind. I really dont think the crappie like that strong wind. So i suggest on real windy days like yesterday find pockets that are not exposed to alot of wind. This should help you get more bites. These crappie i caught were also in the shadiest side of the pocket. They love being out of the sun as well.
