I caught the strangest looking Flathead yesterday that I've ever seen!! The thing was bright orange!!! What the heck? Is it something that they do when it's close to spawning season? I've never seen and orange Flathead before.

look on page 6 of the 2010 catfish insider magazine (in fisherman) , says it's a form of albinism called xanthochromism, pretty cool looking fish congrates, trully a fish of a lifetime.
