    I fish 95% of the time during the daytime, about the only time I fish for cats at night is when it really hot. I've caught plenty of good fish early in the morning and at midday.

    I also do most of my fishing during the day. I do good with the 1-4 pound channels, but i never seem to catch any of the bigger ones during the day.

    great chance of catching fish, channels especially feed like carazy when it rains, becasue an abundance of food is presented.

    also if ur fishing stagnant water.........and it hasnt rained in a long time.....u wanna fish right after a hard rain, it puts oxygen in the water which stirs the fish up really good............i read that in a magazine , then tried it in a small pond.........worked out pretty well.......im not sure how it effects larger body of water though??

    You will catch just as many cats in the day time . Most of my trips are day time and i have have fish over 50 lbs in midday hours. Really hot days will slow them down you may need to find really deep holes at that time to find them but they will bite.
