Smallmouths rely more on depth to retain the light advantage. Their chief summer forage is crayfish, which scuttle along the bottom. Bass look for them along shoals or dropoffs. If smallmouths find weedbeds with minnows, they'll stop in, but charging baitfish in full light is an inefficient strategy unless the bait are there in good numbers. If they are, Rattlin' Rogues, topwaater poppers, or floating stickbaits make good choices. If they aren't, dig out the tube jigs in crayfish colors and hit the shaded edges of the dropoffs, where the hunting is good, and it's twilight all afternoon for both the bass and any angler who takes advantage of the opportunity.
