    Prayer Request Fishing around my dock light

    I am trying to figure out where the sacs are hanging out. Here is my scenario:
    *8 acre lake in a subdivision. Only 3 sac fisherman and a few bass guys.
    *1/2 lake averages 6-12', other 1/2 pretty deep..up to 20'.
    *Lighted area in front of my pier is 4 - 8' which is provided by a very bright white 110v led white light about 18" above the water line.
    *I have an aerator about 10 foot in front of the light,,its sitting on bottom in 8' of water. It is basically an air pump running to a bladder using a sinking air hose.
    *Bream and bass are visible, and easily caught day or night. The bass are fat with the threadfin and bream for food.
    *Trees are sunk vertical and horizontal to the pier from 8-12' of water, about 10' from the aerator in all directions.
    *Water temp is 94 on surface and 85ish around the aerator today
    *Aerator has been in the water since last December
    *Caught a few nice sacs near the bank during the day in the 2019 spawn,,as we do every year.
    *From 2014 to 2017 I could catch 3 to 10 every night using minnows fishing without the light and aerator during the summer/fall.
    Here are my questions
    Why can't is see any sacs around the light?
    Is it too much light?
    Could the aerator be hurting anything?
    Are the bass keeping them from feeding in this area?
    I it just too hot?
    Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    Lot of times crappie will be away from light sometimes itís like during the day they will be in a shadow(post or brush)lot of time they will be 20-30ft from light. Dark moon is best for light. Shad-minnows is the food.

    Try the night glo plastics. Fire them up with bright flashlight or black light Glow heads help also

    12 ft should give enough oxygen without aeration

    I did turn off the bright light and aerator 2 days ago. Left a small light on close to the bank just enough to see my cork in the distance.
    Going to try them again in next nite or two. Let you know the results. Thanks.
