According to Doug Hannon "The Bass Professor," the majority of big bass are caught between the hours of 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM.
I have to say my experience has supported this

I like to get to the ramp early enough so I need a flashlight to make sure everything is connected or disconnected before launching. A glow in the east provides enough light to see the outlines of trees at the ramp and enough visibility to walk around without bumping into them. But to check the drain plug and other items prior to launching, I need the light, unless I do it by braille.
By the time I'm on the water with the seat mounted, the gear out including my pfd, and on the trolling motor, I can see well enough to fish without light. If I need to tie on a bait, I need the light for the first half hour or so of fishing.
The upside is, it's the best part of the day. It's usually the calmest and quietest part of the day. I can get in four or five hours of fishing before the jet skis and party barges begin their assaults on the pond. The only distractions are the break of day birdsongs, and the occasional splash of a fish breaking the surface of the water. I'm on the water for an hour or two before the next boat shows up at the ramp.
No rush, no line of rigs waiting to launch, no one to bother or be bothered by. I don't know for sure if the fishing (catching) is better or not, but the fishing (trying to catch them) is definitely better. I can fish for seven or eight hours and still get home in time to mow the lawn or do other chores around the house. Maybe even get home in time for lunch.

I usually start around 9, am I missing anythihg in those 3 hours?
yeah 3 hours of fishing although I'm lucky if I make it to the water by noon on the weekend(80 hour weeks) The majority of my fishing is afternoon or after work plunking in my family lake or the local pond,I wont complain as I catch fish and my pb was on a last cast after dark on my family property................I just started realing in my senko as fast as possible,as I was leaving.I had given up when a 26 incher slammed it just a few feet from my feet in just inches of water.The way that fish smacked that lure at my feet was addictive .......................hence the reason I am here.As for the fish I had hooked him in the gullet(1st time) and sadly instead of being able to toss it back he ended up on the dinner table(I did throw him back but after going belly up I waded in for him).That night bass fishin went from a ecape to a obsession for me.............and I dont regret it.As for my PB,my wife and i enjoyed our first LMB ever for dinner but honestly I would have enjoyed him more swimming off to get bigger.

Yes! You are missing out on some of the best fishing of the day.
Hit your favorite body of water right before sunrise and throw a buzzbait (Cavitron) or other topwater.
You will not only get a lot of strikes but you may land your personal best.

Besides, I have to get up early to make sure I'm still alive!
