Well I had a day off so I decided to do some local pond hopping. It had been awhile since I'd fished it, but 6 or so years ago I would catch 5-15 2-5lbs smallies in a few hours.
Launched the yak in the first pond, spent about an hour and a half and nothin. Saw a few jump but not even a strike. Tried my go to - slow rolling a white spinner bait, then switch to a buzz bait, then switched to a KVD square lipped crank... nada
So I pulled the yak out and went to the next pond. Same results. Even the beaver dams didn't produce.
Frustrating for sure!
