Water temperature plays a huge role in summertime bass fishing. If you have a thermometer on your boat, you will see the water temperature move as much as 10 degrees from sunrise to the middle of the afternoon. How you decide to target bass during these time frames can play a big role in the success of your day.
As long as I have been bass fishing in Florida, one fact stands out above all others: Bass are more active when the water is cooler. Whether they get more active due to the water cooling overnight, or the bait simply moves around more early in the day, I can’t really say — but it’s true. It’s also true that shallow water warms faster than deeper water.
