fishing series buffalo smallmouth fish


3/6 in a series...

Less than 10 minutes later, I hooked into the biggest fish of the weekend- a (again, according to my De-Liar) 13+ pound Smallmouth Buffalo (fish, not mammal). He also grabbed the tiny white spinner that the Catfish fell for earlier.

All I can figure is that the fish that were swirling on the surface (and that we were both throwing our lures at) were feeding on small Gizzard Shad. The weather on Friday was odd- cooler than earlier in the week, one day removed from a decent soaking.

FYI- Lease and I release far more fish than we keep on any fishing trip. This beauty (which made my brother -in-law Tyrone very upset when he heard the following) was returned to Crab Orchard Lake as soon as I could remove the lure and get a quick reading on my scale, as the next photo shows...
