Default How to fall catfish during daylight or evening hours

Question, Since fall is here and temps are falling, anyone have some tips for catfishing during the daylight hours? I sometimes go out and stay till 1-2AM however I get sleepy and end up leaving for home. I fish from shore or on my kayak. I prefer lakes over rivers.

I've been using the chicken and blood flavored bait in a bag about 2-2 1/2 feet down not too far from the banks. Caught 5 in about an hour yesterday

Try cut shad or whole sucker minnows or cut sucker fish(white,redhorse etc.Been catching them in river till water too high.Works in lakes too.

Tightlining with a slip sinker rig and small cut pieces of fresh shad is tops if you can get the fresh bait. I prefer circle hooks when im in the boat. I do a lot of drifting on the lakes around here, and it works great!
