Day or Night?

    I was just wondering if there are ever any decent sized catfish caught during the day? So far, we have only catfished at night. I was wondering what other peoples experiences were with daytime catfishing. Is it a waste of time? Better during certain seasons?
    Just curious.. and thanks ahead for your responses :)

    I have caught my biggest cats in the daytime, during spring and fall..Summertime is very slow for daytime fishing..The fish below was caught at 2pm

    Water temps must hit the mid 60's before I have much daytime luck..Possibly last week of september..It should peak in October..The above fish was caught oct-12th...This year I have not caught anything to speak of, day or night!
     
  5. I caught my personal best a few weeks back during the daytime at our pond. I hear that channel cats bite just about anytime.
     
  6. i have landed 40 and 50 pound cats during the day mostly th e heat in the summer keeps me off the water more than the lack of hits and fish cought
