Buffalo, Black GeluNumber1



Mississippi River, MN

Tuesday, June 30, 2020
Wow! Caught this while trying for some redhorse for the water cleanup challenge for week five. This fish had been hooked before - there was a deeply taken hook that I couldn't remove without risking harm to the fish. Shout out to the facebook group for the ID help and Graceclaw for the proportions on the third photo. I never thought in a million years I'd have the privilege to catch this fish, let alone in Minnesota waters that I had fished dozens of times before.

Awesome catch!  Great to see more Black Buffs in the area, hopefully this is a good sign for the future!  Hopefully that old hook becomes encysted or is shed and the fish lives a long life and makes more Black Buffs
