    Welcome to the BOC, Butch! I do most of my catfishing during the day, so yes, they definitely do bite during the day.

    Welcome to the BOC butch.

    Yes Cats bite during the day and since your taking your kids fishing I would recomend chicken livers to use for bait. They are messy to work with but usually work good for cats on ponds or small lakes. Just keep them really cold and they will stay on your hook better. Don't try to cast too hard or you'll just sling them off your hook.
