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!!!

Tough Week for Bass Fishing

This week has been a tough week.   We had a cold front come through earlier this week, the temperature drop of a couple degrees on the lake combined with rising lake levels, which now is 656.5 and will be 657 by weeks end and some generation has really got the Bass fishing a bit of a puzzle.   The fish seemed to have moved off the banks and have slowed down in the spawn process.    Last week the water was warning each day, we had sun shine and big bass were more predictable.   This week the best bite has come from 6'-8' of water around spawning pockets and creek channel banks.  Just a day or two of sunshine will get the next waive of spawners moving and hungry.   When/if that happens, shallow water fishing will return with the fish on the banks, on beds and feeding.    Spawning pockets with sun and warming temperatures will be best fished shallow either with some white creature bait on beds if you can seen them or sencos' jigs, Carolina rigged lizard/baby brush hog or creature bait will work best.   If the weather stays cool and water temps continue to drop, then I plan to move back to the stick bait and jig.   Behind docks this time of year is always good to check out too.  If the big girls are holding out around the spawning areas, they will often sit under the back side of the dock.
