35 Pound Bigmouth Buffalo Fish Caught on TopCat's Premium Catfish Bait

It seems that catfish are not the only lovers of TopCat's Premium Homemade Catfish Bait. As shown in the photo below, 17 year old Josh B. of Texarkana, Texas landed this 35 lb. giant Bigmouth Buffalo fish while fishing for catfish with our exclusive dough bait. I understand it was one heck of a fight between Josh and this monster fish. The fish was caught near Maud, Texas in Lake Wright Patman. That is the look of one happy fisherman. Way to go Josh!

The bigmouth buffalo, Ictiobus cyprinellus, also known as the gourd head, redmouth buffalo, buffalo fish, bernard buffalo, roundhead, or brown buffalo, is a large species of the Catostomidae or "sucker" family. The bigmouth buffalo is a dull brownish olive color with dusky fins. Like other suckers it has a long dorsal fin, but unlike others it has a large oblique and terminal mouth. It is the largest of the buffalo fish and reaches a length of more than 4 ft (1.2 m) and 65 lb (29 kg) in weight. It is distributed from the Red River of the North, Manitoba, Canada and North Dakota, United States to the Ohio River and south in the Mississippi River system to Texas and Alabama in the United States. It lives in sluggish areas of large rivers and shallow lakes and streams. ~ Source: Wikipedia
