I've read in one of the catfish insiders about the activity level rises when the sun starts coming up. They say that the Flatheads think of it as Now Or Never and its like a catch up time. One time last year we been fishing at a spot until about Midnight. Then we switched spots (were fishing a small river that we cant get a boat in so we have to bank fish) so we moved down river about a half mile and set up, I caught a channel, and one of the people I fish with caught a flathead. Then about 10 minutes before the sun came up my pole goes down and I caught a 35" flathead. I was wondering if anyone else fishes the early morning for Flatheads. I think I might try it more if it will pay off.
