On the other hand, you saw it come up and hit so clearly they do. Maybe the Denison buffalo have started eating shad.
... Buffalo eat alot of shad like game fish , that is their main diet in most lakes .that is why you will get bit using bass lures etc . buffs will take shad quicker than carp will
.

Interesting, thanks for sharing that. There are plenty of shad in the Red River so the buffalo should not go hungry. I am not sure if they were buffalo, carp or a mixture of both, but as I was wading out among the rocks I was constantly spooking fish, which didn't bother me too much since I was fishing for stripers and didn't think I had anything in my bag they would eat. If I would have known they might take a streamer I would have been more stealthy.

I agree about buffalo hitting your lure. I had a huge buffalo eat my crappie jig last winter. Sucker fought super hard and was probably upwards of 20lbs and some how with my drag set good I eventually landed it with my net and as soon as it went in my net it broke my 6lb mono lol. By far the biggest fish I had ever caught.

Exact thing just happened to me two weeks ago. 6lb test 5.5 foot BM sharpshooter rod. Epic fight.

I don't know if it is a small, big or black but it is certainly a buffalo. When I was a kid you could buy them at the fish market. They taste very good but they have alot of small bones and it takes some work to eat one without getting a bone down your throat. I don't think I could eat one know having seen a whole fish in person. YUK!

Thanks for all the responses. Went fishing below the dam right after Christmas and my brother caught one on a white chatterbait that weighed a bit over 4.5 pounds. Definitely a fun fish to catch that puts a good bend in the rod.
