yes it's normal, they didn't like the bait you gave them....it's the same way as freshwater bass fishing, you can throw plugs all day long and not get a bite when you do finally find something they like then they'll demolish it. You just have to try to immitate whatever it is they're feeding on.

The bigger fish are primarily feeding on the blueback herring and alewives right now.

are you using a teaser/ if you take a chicken scratch bomber/teaser combination it may draw strikes as it has the appearance of a small bass chasing something (at least in overcast days when yellow is more noticeable)
