What type of water system are you fishing in?

Structure is key and your knowlage of it is even more important.
Get out in the middle of the waters look for grass/rock bottoms, humps, fish every point you can, if it has points.
Slow down and use a c-rig or t-rig big fish are deep, you too must go deep if you really want to find them.
If you are thinking of getting a sonar, get the biggest bang for the buck in your budget.
Don't trust your sonar to show you fish, the lower end models will give you a flat one dimentional picture, so a tree limb could produce arches and resemble fish, find something on the bottom, drag a rig across the area, figure out what it is and remember what it looked like on the sonar screen.
I have also found that when it comes to friends, a good friend will come and bail you out of jail, but best friends will be right there beside you saying d**n that was fun !!!

This is a tough time of year to gain confidence. Lots of fish are still in their postspawn transitions and spread out all over different areas of the lake and tough to get to bite. Lakes that normally produce a few dozen fish a trip for me are barely kicking out 10 or 15 a trip now. It's a grind sometimes and some days it does feel like you've forgotten what you're doing but keep studying and absorbing the information on this site and it will get easier.
This is the exact issue I am coming across right now,places where I'd get 3-5 nice fish in a hour or so after work just wont produce now,if it wasnt for a few babies or oddball perch/pickrel I'd be getting totally skunked.
If you're looking to build confidence I'd start with ponds,you can cover the ground easier to find what baits/techniques work for you,vs flying blind on a big body of water.Oh and also imho I'd personaly spend money on more gear before a fishfinder but thats just me.
