i always catch them on crawdads, dead or alive it works pretty good. gets a lot of catfish too though. on roostertails ive had some luck, but nothing beats dropping meat or crawdad to the bottom and letting it sit.

what bait you use to catch buffalo fish

I just had a 97 pound 3 oz smallmouth buffalo rejected as a texas state record because I didn't have a witness that I caught it on rod and reel. But I caught it by using a 14.5 meter pole to drop a pop-up right on its nose very gently as one cruised by on the surface in the spring.

I just caught a decent sized drum off of a gambler lure. It is a knock off of the Chatter Bait.

Small Mouth Buffalo are mostly caught by gill net. I just caught a oklahoma state record. 42 pounds

When fishing for smallmout buffalo it is necessary to get your bait to the bottom once there just let it sit and when your line starts to pull out set the hook. another tip is to use a small hook because of the their small mouth.
