Catfish ID - Channel or Flathead?

[quote][/quote]Thinking this might be a flathead due to the shortness of the anal fin. Pond in Central Oklahoma
*** Attached 2 more images. Pretty sure it's a flathead now

Caught one looked like that only smaller ..... never seen that coloration on a channel. Sent the pix to Overtons fishery and he seemed to think it was an old male at the end of his life cycle....
