Of course, I'm too lazy to type, so this is "quoted"(Copy and pasted) from my TFF post on the fish-
Yes, they are there, even though many have never seen or heard of them. I was one of them until today.
Bigmouth Buffs have a different mouth than the other 2 buffalo- their mouth faces forward. While their body coloration and size is similar to Smallmouths and Blacks, their mouth looks almost close to a shad's mouth, and it's much bigger than the other 2 species mouths. They are also a lot less common to catch than Smallmouth buffs.
And the part you've been waiting for
I tried my secret spot today and the water flow was a bit higher than before from today's rain, which pretty much soaked everything around but not much more. Ryan called me and we were talking while I walked upstream to my sandbass spot when I stopped dead, I saw a BUNCH of buffs and carp feeding everwhere! like shoals of 20-30 fish just cruising around. I hung up and rigged up for them. I stuck on a size 4 hook of some kind and a worm and freelined it in front of their faces. I spooked like 20 before I could really drift it right, and got 3 or 4 eats that spit the hook. I finally got over to my sandbass spot and saw another buff sitting alone behind a sandbar. I casted at it and instead of the ignore I'd been getting from the other buffs it casually sucked it in and my line tightened! I was using my ultralight, so this was a fun fight! I saw it's mouth before it's first run and thought "Wow, that's odd". I got it up on the bank, then kind of processed it for a minute. Bigmouth Buffalo!!!
Yeah! Ok, i'm a sucker for Suckers.
