What time of day did you catch your PB?

Recommended Posts

...Dovetailing off another thread - what time of day did you catch your personal best - or is there a general time frame you tend to catch the bigger ones?

PB Brown bass (7-5) came right before sunrise.

PB Green Bass (11-11) came right before sunset.

Go figure.

The time was Noon, I saw a bass chasing bait against a limestone wall along an everglades canal.  That fish was 11.4 and it was over twenty years ago.  I used a weightless zoom fluke thrown into the mix, and the fight was on.  It had been a reasonable slow day all morning, with bluebird sky, and no wind.  You just never know when it will happen!😍

Many of my top bass were caught between 10 and 2, including my NY PB 7-2.

Early evening, around 5:30. Partly cloudy, was along the edge of a weed-bed in 6' of water...it probably darted out from the weeds to grab my lure. 4# 12oz

I'm not sure if the mid day concentration is because it's a big bass thing, or if it's just that by then, I have things figured out.

My top 10 were all caught after 2 pm. Apparently I’m a terrible morning fisherman

I wish I could remember!!! Haha. I know I caught an 8 lb bass first thing in the morning once. But I have caught two more the same size and I don't remember a time on either. I caught what is probably my PB smallmouth about 930 am a month ago

My 2 best were both 8lbs. One I caught off bed in a pond, in March about 30 minutes before dark. 

 

The other I caught about 30 minutes before dark in July off a brush pile on a lake near me. However I catch most of my bigger bass at night time between June and September. I love night fishing, a Texas rigged black worm and ANYONE can catch em at night

These are all interesting responses because I’m typically a very early riser to be on the water before other fisherman.  But seems like just as many PB’s have come mid-day or other times. 

 

Moral of of the story - I need to fish more ;)

About 4PM on a hot day in June but in a creek mouth in the shade.

Everything over 6 was between 11AM and 4PM....crazy.  However,  the one that got away was almost 11PM

A little after 8 AM October 19th 2018. I dropped my daughter off at school about 7:45 and headed right over to the spot. Put the kayak in and paddled straight to this spot because I had a good feeling about it. I caught her on the first cast at that spot. Air temp was 38 degrees, but water temp was much higher. It's the fish in my avatar.

PB came a few minutes before noon. I can remember the time because out emergency sirens go off as a test at 12noon every month.

I fished a lot of very skinny water with heavy shallow cover last year and my best we’re caught mid day....but typically and historically this isn’t the case. I usually catch my better fish after 5pm

PB Smallmouth Bass was caught at 9:40am

 

PB Largemouth was sometime around 11am That's my best guess as it was a long time ago.
