One thing about fishing is you don’t always catch fish even when someone got dozens a few hours before you got to fish the same spot. The fish can be fussy and only hit a very specific bait or presentation. They for sure aren't everywhere even when they are in “thick”. I have had many days when I got them figured out and did far better than anyone else around me and been the guy that just couldn’t get any or just a few. I know of at least 300 whites caught this week from others I have spoken with. Today I managed over 3 dozen and only after I tried different presentations. Once I found what they wanted it was on and for a couple hours until it wasn’t any more. I had fun so I didn’t look for other active fish or switch to see if they wanted something else. Other people around me were successful too.
Point is they are there now and probably for a few more weeks as the temps are not going up anytime soon. Couple fish were just under 17”. The bulk were 15-16” and a handful of small ones.
