I like to be out on the lake at first light.
That said it seems like I usually don't start catching fish until the sun is fully up and it started to get hot out.

We went Sunday at 5:30 am and had only caught 5 or 6 until about 10:00. I was thinking of calling it a day when we started catching fish.
We went back to the same brush piles we had fished earlier and caught fish on all of them.

I am wondering if my time might not be better spent starting out around 9:00

I usually don't do good till about 9:30 or 10 am as well. My opinion is that the fish haven't had time to bunch back up after a night of roaming around feeding. Once the sun is up for a while, it puts them in the places we are looking. Anything before that is a bonus for me. It also depends on what I am doing. If I am on a new lake, I will get there early and scan till 9:30 or 10am and find the spots I want to fish when the time is right.

My best luck crappie fishing is always from about noon-5 in the dead heat of the day in the summer.

If my wife is going, we are lucky to hit water before 9 am.

I have fished with Lane twice this summer, both times were 1-6 pm (caught 57 and 48)

I never did real well first thing in the morning as much as i love launching first thing to enjoy the quiet and watch the sunrise. Like others said. In the dead heat of the day was always best. I have actually watched schools of Crappie come from open water to docks and timber on side imaging and then started catching them one after the other!
