Are these fish or my Fish Finder broken?

Hello Experts, 

There is a thing I can't figure out. You can help me. 

 

Early this month I went fishing in the newfound lake, NH from my kayak. It was a super calm day, almost no wind. And it was a tournament day, and a lot people caught big bass. 

From my fishfinder, Lowrance hook2 I can see a lot of marks quite often. But I am not sure are these really fish? Because I tried jig, small bucktail, dipsy diver with crankbait, paddle tail jig, spoon, and live worm with a slip bobber no bite at all. 

 

I attached some photos of my fish finder, and hope you can give me an advice. I was thinking these marks are bait schools, but the water was deep and some single mark is not small.

Those are fish from 20-40 feet and a school of bait at 10ft.

Those look like fish...the fact that you put a lure in front of them and they didn't bite it just means they weren't interested in whatever you were throwing, it doesn't mean they aren't fish :)  If you fished through all those fish and didn't get a bite - particularly the fish that were pretty clearly feeding on schools of bait - I'd start changing up the stuff I was throwing or the way I was fishing it :)  I'm wondering if they were schools of walleye or white perch? Were the fish pushing the bait up to the surface?

If they are fish, I guess they are smallmouth bass or trout, because this lake is very clear and most people catch these two type fish. 

 

So, what is bait I should use if they are not interested any lures and live worm? Shiners? What bait or lure are you going to use in the very clear lake?
