During this hot time of the year you can fish early in the morning — even right before daylight — and get in on some of the best action of the day.
Daybreak is one of the most peaceful and beautiful times of the day to be on the water — and also one of the best times for catching fish. Bass and crappie and other game fish will be closer to the bank and in shallow water while following the schools of baitfish. This is a peak feeding time for most fish and a time when bass fishing a surface bait or a loud buzz bait can pay off big.
You can see and hear bass feeding on the surface very early in the morning on most lakes, making this a very exciting time to be on the water.
