Pulled a 32 x 30 inch buff out of Ray Hubbard on my trip to Dallas last February. Weighed 26 lbs. Next biggest was 30 x 30 and weighed 24 lbs.
Pic in my signature if the site still allows images from non secure hosted web sites.


PB common = 38.5 lbs
PB mirror = 22.5 lbs
PB buff = 26 lbs

Catch and release. The dream - to catch one of every species of Freshwater fish in our great state! If only I can resist Carp...

Buffs are one of my favorite fish to catch and I put this picture of the state catch and release black buffalo (36.25 inches and 26.60 pounds) on the back of my book, “The Art of Fishing for Records.”

If you are interested in a fish that size, I would recommend chumming with range cubes, then using range cubes as bait. Here is a video of how I rig them.

If you are looking for tips on how to catch record and trophy fish, I recommend getting a copy of my book. There are lots of secrets in there on how to accomplish your goals.





Awesome fish! woot

Just this guy today and a few 10ish lb carp.

Amazing how different the carp bite vs the buffs.

I lost a big buffalo, would have got my record... But he popped off as soon as I got eyes on him.

I have to get back out there after them now that all this cold weather might have passed.

Friday's are the only days I am able to fish and every Friday for the last 5 or 6 weeks has been really poor weather.

Love seeing these big buff pics!
