I found a farm pond/lake that has some really big buffalo in it-I mean like 30+lbs. I've seen them jumping before & really couldn't identify them at first but yesterday something happened. I was casting a large black & yellow beetle spin for bass or some of the huge crappie that are also in the lake, when something hit so hard it nearly yanked the rod from my hand, I have a burn on my thumb from the line. Anyway, I'm thinking that I'd maybe hooked the biggest bass in the lake or or a big cat or something and this thing makes a boil so big it almost scared me. All of a sudden (as I'm sure has happened to so many of you guys) the hook came free-but the fish immediately jumped. Now let me tell you, I've seen some huge fish in small ponds but this was crazy. I thought I was looking at Flipper.This fish was at least 4 feet long-I'm guesstimating at least 30lbs,at least. Now, I'm obsessed with catching one but i don't know what type of bait to use. I don't know if I snagged it or if it actually hit the lure.What's a good bait for these things?
