Interesting to hear your guys thoughts...

We quaded into some lakes out west in the crown, same thing, tons of shrimp and no fish. I know historically the jack/perch fishing was deadly in this lake, but didn't see anything. There was no weeds and we drilled holes all over. I suspect a winter on this lake.
