Fishing can be an interesting thing papermaker... Sometimes I've been out on Tichigan and did really well when everyone else was struggling. This past spring I was out on the Wolf for the Walleye run, and the boat next to me with 3 guys got their limit, and I couldn't catch a darn thing - that is just how it works sometimes.
That said on the Fox and Tichigan I tend to catch a similar amount of fish year after year after year.
I'm not questioning whether or not you've caught fish PM, but the numbers are way, way, down. Last year I could fill a basket with pannies any day of the week - morning, noon, or evening...
So far this year not a single panfish. Most surprising to me is how the Yellow Bass have disappeared. Not a single one.
Total for me this year has been 2 nice catfish, 3 Drum, and 1 Walleye. Last year by this time I had caught dozens of Walleye.
I live on this section of river and all of my neighbors have noticed the same thing - a huge reduction in fish. For me, it is the slowest year I've had in 15 years. Mr. Bass posted that it was the worst year he's had in 30 years.
If your still catching fish - good deal! For me, darn near the Dead Sea, and any other year I've done quite well.
When I fish above the Waterford Dam or below the Rochester Dam it is similar to every other year...
