I've been trying for 3 days straight now to try and catch this fish but nothing to show for it I have the backlash line I started off fishing in front of the house in to the middle of the lake and at different distances and depths, and I've moved all around the lake. I've used dough balls and semolina balls still nothing what am I doing wrong?

Hi Mitchell,

I know it sort of goes without saying but it is worth rechecking everything - i expect you have done all this already, but maybe check you have: the mission tracked, and all prerequisites to catch the fish have been complied with ie you just have to catch the fish left in the tracked mission notification. Then, use a fairly small hook eg 1# or 2# as the fish has a fairly small mouth and won't get the hook in it's mouth otherwise. Then fish at peak times, close to the bottom out near the middle of the lake. It took me a while and I had to mark the deeper areas in the middle of the lake to help with my casting. Try using the baits that are listed for small mouthed buffalo under the fish description eg semolina balls, dough balls and also try bread with honey. If not try watching some of the videos on you tube

Hope this helps a bit

In front of the house casting as close to the middle as you can should be fine, you need to use the invisible line on a Telescopic or Match rod (float) setup, try using a small hook (#8 - #2) set at max depth.  Corn worked for me, but the baits your using should work as well.  The most likely time to catch it is in the early morning or the middle of the day (check the weather forecast for peak times). HTH.
