      Conventional wisdom says either early morning or evening. My experience is that the morning bite is better in spring and early summer as fish turn on as the water warms up each day. As the season progresses I find that the evening bite gets better. My favorite time is the half hour before and the hour after sunset in mid-summer to fall. Try running a buzzbait over vegetated flats especially right after sunset and hang on!

        When bass fishing I have better success with the morning bite with topwaters and artificial worms.

        Later in the day and into the evening I switch to a jig/trailer combo or a weightless worm and I have been having great success.

          Although I'm in Florida, (bass capital of the WORLD as far as I'm concerned), the time of day to catch em is pretty universal. Late afternoon and early evening, right before sunrise to early morining. While bass will EAT according to weather and lunar cycles, you can rest assured that the AVERAGE BEST TIME is what I have offered above. ESPECIALLY in spring, summer and fall. That is WHY MOST people fish durring THESE TIMES. This has been learned from time immortal.

                                Body cam footage shows Floyd wasn't murdered. The cop kneeling on his neck might have been negligent, but his actions did not kill Floyd.
