Captain John,
After fishing with you, I took some of your advise. Downsized everything like you said, 10lb test with a 1/0 hook and caught three small ones (non-keepers) early in the morning then at about 5:30pm I caught this one on a fairly large shiner. Still, for a new moon and fairly low light conditions most of the day, considering all the cloud cover I thought I would’ve caught more, proving what you told me that some lakes are just set up to be more productive than others. Thanks!!
