Search for files on a particular date

I have list of files generated on 2 dates which are shown below:
-rw-r-----   1 bobby  ccsdba    580945   Aug 16 16:13 file 1
-rw-r-----   1 bobby  ccsdba    580945   Aug 16 16:16 file 2
-rwxrwxr-x   1 Shaan  ccsdba    4422724  Aug 16 16:28 file 3 
-rwxrwxr-x   1 bobby  ccsdba       794      Aug 17 12:50 run_load.lg
-rw-r-----   1 Rocky    ccsdba       251    Aug 17 13:47 file 3

Inorder to get the files from Aug16, what is the command that we going to use ?

The desired output should be like this :
-rw-r-----   1 bobby  ccsdba    580945   Aug 16 16:13 file 1
-rw-r-----   1 bobby  ccsdba    580945   Aug 16 16:16 file 2
-rwxrwxr-x   1 Shaan  ccsdba    4422724  Aug 16 16:28 file 3
