BUFFALO BIGMOUTH (Ictiobus cyprinellus)

Found in in USA lakes and rivers: the Lake Erie, Ohio, and Mississippi drainages from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico, the bigmouth buffalo has also been introduced into Arizona and also in California.
About 95 percent of the big-mouth buffalo's diet consists of small crustaceans. It also feeds on algae and other plant matter, but very seldom eats insects, insect larvae, or other fish. Consequently, the species does not form a large sport fishery since it will not take the normal types of baits. It is also caught while capr fishing with boiles.
