Small to medium channel cats definitely school feed at night. We fish in about 2 feet of water in a small channel entrance of a large river, and 90% of the time (night time only, opposite during the day time) the bites come all at once, 2-3 fish/bites at a time, then none for a while.

There are also flatheads in the river, none real big - but we have never had multiple flatheads one at once, any size.

We have had waves of flatheads and channels hit like that. When we fish from the boat we`ll pull up on a spot and catch fish steady for an hour or two and then nothing, then we move and try to find more.

I've gotten into some good schools of channels before. Usually when I'm into them heavy they usually run all the same size 15 to 20 inches.
I've seen channels school up in 8 to 10 foot of water with over 100 fish in the school. They're usually suspended off the bottom.
The bigger channels are often in the deepest pools around cover in the daytime.
