I fish for cat whenever I have the time, but I've definitely found that right before nightfall is when I have the best luck. I do a lot of my fishing near the Cedar River dam in Waverly, IA and the cat move up closer to the dam come nighttime.
I used an Abu Garcia spin cast reel with a 6 and 1/2 foot medium action rod with 12 lb test Stren "super knot" line. I like to use the 2/0 size Octopus Circle hooks with a 1/2 ounce sinker and a small split shoot simply to keep the bigger sinker away from the hook. I fish the bottom during the daytime hours and I bobber fish for them at night, setting my bobber about 2 and 1/2 to 3 feet deep and casting towards the face of the dam.
Happy cat huntin'!
