Fish every where but not even a nibble

Started out a two days ago for an afternoon of fishing. Nice bright sunny Fall day, sun shining bright. Left the dock and headed for a good spot and the sun was reflecting off my fish finder when I turned it on. Got close to my spot and saw two large schools as I slowed down. Stopped and fished over them for ten or twenty minutes and not even a bite. Moved a hundred feet or so and more fish showed up but no luck. Same with the third spot. Crossed the lake into an area with about 8 feet of water and was showing fish but looked closer and the depth was reading 29 feet.

Lesson learned, don’t waste an half hour or more of time when you push the button for simulation mode rather than real time. Second thing I learned is the paddle wheel does show real speed in simulation but not the real water temperature.

I was going to say that you can't blame not catching any fish on me! I wasn't anywhere near you THIS TIME!

Hey seeing all those fish gave you hope to get them. Your first hint should have been when Ella did not throw a line out.:p

I bet you were using live bait instead of artificial or simulated lures.

Nope, 3/16 oz round head jig with either white or chartreuse 1 1/2" twister tail. The same lures I have not been catching fish with ever since Aspeck put the jinx on me.
