Buffalo Smuffalo -- Neil, you really need to posting Koi pics here :blush: Nice session though, and although they were all babies - it's nice to have a crazy busy session once in a while.
Congrats guys!! If you wanna blank, come down to LBL for a while :angry2:
PS - The 'odd one' looks like it had huge propeller damage as a youngster?

Just Leave Me Alone!!

yeah Brid I agree, babies, but what a session, !!!!

the Pattern on the Black Buff is called a HELIX, kind of like a MUDDLER in Commons but I haven't a freaking clue as to what causes it,,, I've sent the picture off to a biologist in hopes of an answer,,,,, ,,, would be interested to see what the guys with degrees in Marine Biology say,,a few years ago Keith M. caught one with this Helix pattern at Lake whitney,,,,,,and I've caught several smallmouth with it as well,,,,,really doubt if it's a boating accident

Just really a cool looking fish and to have it be a Black Buff, well that's ALMOST ( note I said almost) as good as a Koi

Neil, that buff is soooooo much cooler than a koi. Well done my friend. Koi are everywhere, just go to any residential pond and you will find them. I mean, you have to be a real numpty to not catch one. Oh, wait.... :P

Well I sent of the pictures to two Biologists here in Texas, and they agree that it's genetic, and it is a BLACK BUFFALO...one of them asked if I had submitted it as a STATE RECORD...actually I never thought of that,,,,,just wanted to confirm the capture on pictures and get the guy back into the water with as little damage as possible,,,can you imagine that,,,,a RARE fish, made RARER by the Scale pattern and all I wanted to do was get a few pics, and get him back in the water,,,,I gave up fame and fortune,,,,
