does the cats in pons bite better in the day or night
depends on the size of pond and how much pressure it gets
Well if Im after flattys I always fish at night.
Night for sure.Most of the pay-ponds around here stay open all night And I usually do better after the sun falls..
Nights for sleeping darn fish better learn to eat in daytime.
Sun up and ant sundown is prime time for me:wink:
theres a 5 acre pond here in dickson that i never even get a bite during the daytime but once it gets dark i really catch some nice fish so i would say nightime for pond catfishing
I can catch them around the clock where I am...it is definitely slower during the day though. I've caught all my larger channel cats during the day. At night I always catch a bunch of smaller ones, usually between 9pm and 11pm. My favorite time is during sunset, right when the sun touches the trees on the horizon and for an hour or so after that.
Nighttime always takes the cake for me but I had some darn good luck right around sun up and a few hours afterwards too.
I agree with this post 110 percent if its never been fished or not very much they will hit anything almost anytime. IMHO
I like fishing ponds that hasn't been fished for a long time its always a mystery what your gonna catch
"This is your catfish brain" Springtime is Daytime, Summer is nighttime, Fall is both, Winter is daytime. Any Questions...lol
I've caught fish during the day, but, never a Flathead during what I would call daylight hours,,
Have caught them either evening, or dawn when there was light, but, not in the middle of the day..
Still working on that one..!!!!
Haven't caught a lot of cats but my biggest came at 4:04 in the afternoon. :wink:
Dusk and dawn are always best for me.
I strongly prefer day.
I have access to a 4 acre pond which is about 20' deep at the dam. This is on a business's property that closes each day at about 5:00 pm. Channel cats were stocked in there, but I've only caught one--a four pounder on a doughball. So I'm thinking night fishing would be more effective on this pond. I've tried everything, live minnows and shiners, nightcrawlers, live bluegill, cut bluegill, cut shad, shad guts, shrimp, and crawfish and probably other baits I've forgotten. However, I have permission and can get a key to fish after hours. I'll let everyone know more after April, May, or June. The only thing I've caught on the live bait and cut bait have been bream, bass, and turtles.
I like fishing at night just because it's a lot more quiet. And I catch lot of cats during the night. But I've caught all my big fish in the mid morning. 9 to 11 am works for me.
i usually do i the best at dust till about 11am
