You are correct- structure is what you think it is. Temperature breaks have an effect similar to structure, in that they hold fish. Cold water is denser then warm water, and creates an invisible barrier that fish will hold to. Cold water also holds more oxygen and plankton- so pelagic fish that prefer warmer water will congregate along the temperature breaks and feed upon baitfish, which also congregate there to feed on plankton.
A thermocline is similar to a temperature break, but occurs within the vertical water column, not at the surface.

Hope this helps- Bill
