winter largemouth bass fishing !?

Can somebody give me some tips ? Me and a friend of mine decided to enter a tournament this fall . We have cought a few but…. The last couple of tourneys we’ve been skunked . We’ve been seeing the fish on the finder but can’t get them to bite . We have tried every thing in our boxes – jigs,grubs,worms,dropshot with 3” worms,spoons every type of crank you can think of and still, no bite !The water is cold about 35 F. , The fish are about 20-30 ft. Other people have been bringing them in though . THANKS
Cant use live bait in tourney .

has anyone fished from dock or shore with portable fish finder and if so, how does it work?

humminbird and a few others make a portable fish finder that works like others by identifying objects through sound waves. the ability to fish from shore comes from the transmitter thats casted by the fisherman and trolled over water surface and signals are sent to fisherman on shore who has a small reciever. has anyone used one of these devices???

How many feel we are getting way to?

Technical in our sporting equipment?
Reels with computer chips to control back lashes, side view sonar, etc.
Rifle scopes with range finding abilities and being able to show you the drop of the bullet.
Come on I might be 60 but still consider hunting and fishing a sport.
With all the tech stuff showing up on the market pretty soon your reel will do everything, what fun is that going to be?
Granted both my boats have GPS/Fish Finders and most of my reels are not cheap. But if this keeps up where will the fun and the sport of chase be left.
Our waters and lands are being pressure way to much as it is.
Be well my friends
Very Good Answers so far, nice to see their are some sporting people left.
Gimman part of what you stated is why I quite fishing T’s and the political aspect that started emerging. It no longer was fun and/or relaxing.

Does the fishfinder carp lakes app actually work?

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.zeustechnocrates.fishfinder&hl=en

I would like to know if this app, known as fishfinder carp lakes is a real app that actually works. The description of the app itself even admits that its a good way to fool friends. Its $4.99 and I don’t want to waste my money on an app thats just a joke, im looking for a serious fish finder app.
Actually a real fish finder app does exist, How it works is that it uses a floating bobber to contain all the components. You tie the bobber to your line and cast it out into your fishing spot, this bobber contains electronics that send sonic waves down into the water (just like all other fish finders do) then using bluetooth it wirelessly connects to your phone and uses your phone screen to display what is under the water. The only problem is that it costs $300 for the special bobber and I’m not sure how comfortable I would feel about casting a $300 bobber out into the water. Also it wouldn’t work while your moving in your boat, making its uses strictly for when your anchored down or fishing from shore. So this is why I’m looking for a cheaper version for now.
