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

Yesterday and today I spent most of my time graphing secondary points and main lake points looking for groups of fish.  I really did not find much.  Most of the fish I did see were in 15′-25′ of water and some hanging around brush [piles on or around the points.

I did fish for fish in the brush piles and dragging the A-Rig on the bottom, watching a few bass chase the A-Rig on my Garmin, but they would not commit to bite.

I also fished some creek channel banks in the backs of coves, most of that ice has finally thawed.  I could see fish on my graph well off the bank, but could not get any to bite the A-Rig, Jig, Ned Rig, Stick Bait and small swimbait.  At least I know there are fish there from seeing them on the graph, it may take a couple of days now for those fish the thaw out and eat.

Overall, the areas those areas I graphed yesterday and today, the water is stained and cold.

From what I am hearing, the Glaize is not fishing very good, but could get good in the coming days with some warmth and water clearing up a bit.  Apparently the best water right now is up the Niangua, 40-48 degree water temps, good clarity and biting fish.  The only challenge is that area will fish small as many anglers have found that good water and will be piling into that area.

The Gravois water is mostly clear to slightly stained 35-37 degrees with an A-Rig and Stick bait bite on points and secondary points and brush.  The Dam is slightly stained, also 35-37 degrees with bite off of secondary points, over brush and some creek channel banks that are mostly now free of ice.
