I still think it goes back to the overzealous weed kill the did several years back... remember how it used to be almost unfishable at times due to heavy weeds at the shore? They started removing them 'manually' and leaving the piles on the grass which I think they ceased due to that being a great look either. Then one day... not a weed to be found.
Everyone I talk to said last year they basically caught zero. Hell, I even got skunked one day hanging worms under bobbers in early fall! The crappies have seemed to disappear as well. I remember that early on a few years back I caught a mix of several dozen crappies and bass one day on the kastmaster. Now? Nothing, of any size.
I did have two people mention they stocked recently? One guy was tying up his boat and one guy on the path... but yes my results there (a lone 12"er on a chatter) this year have been dismal as well.
But as I'm not catching much anywhere I still work it into my rotation, even if it's against my better judgement.
I'd go assuming I'd lose a few lures every time.
And yeah, it hasn't lost it's tendancy to just outright devour tackle... it's a 'don't throw what you want back' situation
