The Buffalo Fish
The buffalo fish is found in the Mississippi and its branches. It grows to a weight of fifteen pounds. It is caught by still fishing with somewhat heavier tackle, baited with worms. The large mouthed buffalo is found in the Mississippi also, as well as in other large rivers of the South and central portion of the United States. It reaches a weight of fifty pounds. Heavier, stronger tackle must be used for them. The red horse is also called a mullet it resembles the white sucker somewhat but is brown in color. Suckers are riot highly esteemed as food fish but the white sucker taken from swift, hard-bottomed streams is not at all bad.
