It feeds on phytoplankton, mollusks, aquatic insects and their larvae. The body of the buffalo is covered with large scales and has a rolling shape. The back is colored light brown, the sides are dull, the fins are gray. The maximum size of an adult individual is up to 120 cm, weight is up to 45 kg.

Guys i'm targeting this fish for the first time, some hint?

At the moment i'm trying at the pond in Tuba, as seems to be the best spot for the fish habits, but nothing, i got some Black Buffalo, lot of Common Carps, Wild Carp, Grass Carps but ZERO Buffalo. I'm fishing with Loop Rig and In-Line Rig using 22Kg leaders and hooks from 2 to 1/0. Baits: Freshwater Krill 14 and 18, Tuna 16, Halibut 14, Spice Mix, etc.

 

Someone can point me in the right direction please? 🙂

Try 138:99, 10m clip.  I had the best luck with Freshwater Krill and I would either stick with the size 2 hook or maybe even try a 4.  Loop rig and that leader should be fine.

Thanks for the hints @Crucian, didn't had luck on 138:99, but got the same some Buffalo on 131:121 using smaller hook (from 2 to 4) and using a smaller leader (17Kg)... Now is time to catch a trophy 😄

Obrigado pelas dicas @Crucian , não teve sorte no 138: 99, mas conseguiu o mesmo Buffalo no 131: 121 usando gancho menor (de 2 a 4) e usando um líder menor (17Kg) ... Agora é a hora pegar um troféu😄

What are you using for a setup?  Once you have a flouro leader 22 or under you should be fine.  As I said I use a 2 or 4 hook, I seemed to have better luck with the 4.

O que você está usando para uma instalação? Depois de ter um líder do flouro com 22 anos ou menos, você ficará bem. Como eu disse que uso um gancho de 2 ou 4, parecia ter melhor sorte com o 4.

I use Loop Rig

Line: Snake Power Brid 50LB SMO 300M (22.8KG)

Leader: 22.5KG

Hook: 1 and 2 Bersek Hooks Ultra Series

 

But i dont catch Buffalo...i catch Grass Carp and Common Carp

Are you using freshwater krill 14 for bait?  If not try that.

@Vascodamm29 Try to use a 17Kg leader, i have increased a lot the bite rate in this way, hook size 4 Ultra or Bloody, Freshwater Krill or Black Pepper and Fish small size are working well for me. Anyway Buffalo isn't an easy fish to target as there are many carp species in the same spot and Grass/Bighead dont give you the time to wait for Buffalo 🙂 So for each Buffalo you get 7-8 carps (even big ones). I'm experimenting method rig in one rod and seems to have less carps and same Buffalo, but i'm not yet totally sure 🙂

@ Vascodamm29  Tente usar um líder de 17Kg, aumentei bastante a taxa de mordida dessa maneira, o tamanho pequeno do gancho 4 Ultra ou Sangrento, Krill de água doce ou pimenta preta e tamanho pequeno de peixe estão funcionando bem para mim. De qualquer forma, Buffalo não é um peixe fácil de atingir, pois há muitas espécies de carpas no mesmo local e Grass / Bighead não dá tempo para esperar Buffalo. 🙂 Assim, para cada Buffalo, você ganha de 7 a 8 carpas (mesmo as grandes). Estou experimentando o método rig em uma haste e parece ter menos carpas e o mesmo búfalo, mas ainda não tenho certeza🙂 

Tks for help me...i go now try 🙂
