Not your every day sucker


Recommended Posts

 

The Buffalo fish as most know, belong to the sucker family and are a native North American species.
Common telling sign is ' no ' whiskers, whereas carp have them.
Now the question is, is this a big or small mouth Buffalo sucker.
Any help distinguishing between the two would be appreciated
Weighed in at 19 lbs :)
