Just throwing in an observation on your posts about the schools of fish you are showing. A few years back while fishing Potters I had the same thing happen. I put on the smallest jigging Rapala (1in) in glow and added a wax worm on the treble. I ended up catching a limit of Crappies in under an hour. These fish would look at the small jigs an move on just as you described. But they would continually hit that waxwork on the treble without any issue. Give it a try- what do you have to lose? Let me know what happens.

This lake doesn't have a large population of bass in it anymore. There are some Quality fish in here though. A five pounder is not out of the question anytime you're on Potters. The downside unfortunately over the past couple years is that the lake has been treated for milfoil. When this happens it always affects the fishery. Like a lot of our other area lakes it has seen a decline in the fishing with the killing of the good weeds.
See mostly just ice fishing post for this lake is the fishing bad in summer. Thinking about trying some smaller quieter lakes in the area for bass. Not looking for spots to fish just wondering if people think this is a decent lake to target bass or a waste of time.I see on the DNR site they list bass as "Abundant" but who knows when the last survey was!

Caught one 30" pike just as I set up. Had two more flags, no more fish.
Perfect day out on the ice. Wish I could have had more time out there.
A good amount of people out there on and off.
Saw a few other flags and people seemed to be catching some panfish and pike.
