I've really been doing well in the afternoons with crappie with a float and fly. The mornings are terrible. Wondering why?

Right, went Saturday and was catching them on a bare hook before 8AM. After the sun came out from behind the clouds at 8AM they shut down except for in the well shaded areas. Have had good success the year finding a bunch in the 10-13in. range but the big slabs have eluded me.
