3 words... Drill... drill... drill.... If I had to give another tip, it would be to trust your Vexilar and use it to your advantage.

 

How big of a lake are you talking? Much structure? Up here a lot of the big lakes have large weed flats that hold the big 'gills. Another lake 10 miles away has them suspended over the deep holes and the main lake basin.

not  much structure but the lake is 1.5miles long by .75miles wide.... iv tried fishing the shallows,the coves, the flats, and the reallly deepwater all i caught was bass and pickerals, i know their are alot of panfish because i fish all sumer in this lake.

 

Are there neck down areas on the Lake ?If there are have you tried them?How big are the lures you fishing ?Do you need to scale down from Bass and Pickerel sized lures?

their arnt really any necked down areas google lake its Rosevally lake Pa... the bass and picerals were on tipups lol, i us a teardrop jig with waxworm
Too bad there are no neck down areas.I find them productive . How about mid lake humps?
thats were the bass,pickeral, and waleye hang
I agree with Matthew.  Look for standing weeds and rely heavily on the Vex. 

ill try that

 

According to your latest photos you found the gills and seeds.Good job man! What'd you do different?

went to a diferent pond

LOL!
