Default New Species: Bigmouth Buffalo

I've heard lots of stories about people catching these fish before but never found them myself. Wednesday was the first time I had found them in numbers. Talk about a lot of fun. My arm is still sore! The crazy thing is they were taking a #22 gray midge. I'm still not sure if they were eating it or if it was coincidence. Any buffalo experts out there? Will these fish eat something that small? Anyway it was cool to add a new species to the list.

The trout fishing was pretty good too but finding a window without generation is still challenging. This should be a good year on all of our tailwaters with the cold winter we had providing lots of cold water for the summer!
"Then He said to them, 'Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.'" Matthew 4:19
