I have only been out a few times this year but I would have to agree. Before draw down I was guarnteed to at least get some topwater frog action around decent looking areas. This year so far..dead zone. However, I did see people catching a few smaller bass around me but nothing crazy, so could be a tactic issue too. I would have to imagine after a big change like that it may impact the fish this year, just not sure how. One thing I noticed is that before where there were alot more lilly pads and visible weeds and pockets, now they are all under water or maybe gone. That alone would make a change in their eating/feeding habits. I guess only time will tell. Ice fishing this year will be interesting too.
