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 Report For Week Ending May 24, 2013

Friday, May 24, 2013

Fishing has been good as the fish are in all phases of the spawn.


The water temps throughout the lake have been in the low to mid 70's.  This week was a full moon, so the second phase of spawning bass have moved onto beds, while the first phase of spawners have moved away from beds and are in a post spawn pattern.

This week there have been many phase two spawners cruising near spawning areas, these fish have been caught on soft plastics, jigs, top water baits and spinner baits.   Spawning fish can be caught on the jigs, soft plastics and top water baits worked on and around the beds.

The first phase of spawning bass are now moving away from spawning areas and can be caught on brush piles, channel banks leading to secondary points and secondary points.  Look for banks with chunk rock and transition banks from pea gravel to chunk rock.

Some fish will also be in spawning patterns around bluff ends and bluff edges.  Fish for these fish with jigs, soft plastics, shakey head, etc.
