i know in smaller lakes and ponds day and light make a difference because of the light. Thinking the river is cloudier and alot deeper, the question comes to mind does it matter if its day or night when catfishing? it seems like river fishing breaks all the rules learned about catfishing from "bigger baits better" to ya' gotta have alot of wait to hold'er down. figured time of day may also not really matter. Can someone give me more insight on this matter?
