So wow, was out yesterday and today and man things have changed in a week...

2 dinks yesterday and nothing today. Fished high and low and all over...not a thing. Got a follow by a 4 inch perch....that was it.

I swear to God where I do most of my fishing the fall feed bag is a complete fallacy.

Only thing I can figure is that all the fish head up to the far end of the lake once the water temps dip a bit where the current is coming fom. It's is too far to get to in the yak to even try it out...it was a dead zone out there today, just an incredible change and every year it is similar, but this year it seemed to hit earlier.

Anyone else seeing the bass moving out now or still catching them in normal summer spots?

Here's a great article from last year that really helped me learn a lot more about fall fishing.

https://www.in-fisherman.com/editorial/fire...gemouths/369074

Two nights of zero degree temps will throw many fish into a funk. That said, the temps are to pick up this week and I think you'll see an increase in fish activity and feeding.

Best of luck.

Thanks Atila, appreciate the insight.

Will give that article a close read. I fished all over today, deep, shallow, top water, jigs, wacky rig...but that said, I had some slow days in mid summer too. Might have just been one of those days. Just sucks to get to up and hit the water at 7am when it is zero degrees, freeze your a## off and see nothing!! Absolutely nothing...I went into musky territory too and not a sniff.

Thanks again! Will likely get out there again tomorrow, but likely sleep in a bit tho.
