      Is Puckaway still loaded with good size Yellow Perch? Use to catch em when I vacationed there in the 60 s

      Must stock the Amur around 12/14 inches so it survives the Bass and Pike

      White Amur(Grass Carp) eat 2/3 s of their weight per day in weeds and grow well over 3 foot and 30 pounds Has anyone considered this fish for some weed control? ...more They are sterilized. 20 /acre should do nicely Would they survive the cold winters?

      Buffalo is terrible with weeds. VERY hard to motor ANYWHERE! Motor sounded overheating alarm 3 times in a 2 hour attempt to fish. Not well managed. Sad. It has ...more been MUCH better in years past. :(

      Patrick, we need more anglers like yourself.
      That's using your head and heart! Great job!

      Ray, this fish was released. I was very careful with it. I don't eat largemouth, especially a fish this big and old. Fairly rare to see them this big this far ...more north on public water. When I do keep fish (usually walleye or pike) I never keep the larger ones, smaller eating size is what I believe you should keep. I considered a mount due to the rarity of this beast but even then I would get a replica. Would never kill it. Especially since I believe this was a pre-spawn female.
