With spring largemouths, water temperature can dictate the bite throughout the day

The largemouth bite in late spring is often dictated by water temperature. This means that the sunrise action might be modest, but by midafternoon the fish could have their feedbags on. This is due to a few reasons, but a main contributor to the bite turning on is the largemouth’s forage base becoming more active. (Stock photo)

Hardcore fishermen want to be at the boat ramp at sunrise to hit the water before the masses even wake up. This is a good strategy throughout the summer, when recreational boaters take advantage of banker’s hours to water ski, ride personal watercraft, and just enjoy some sun.
When that happens, the best fishing often occurs during the first few hours of the day. Right now, however, you might want to sleep in and fish the middle of the day if you want to catch some largemouth bass.
