First Buff using Euro Rigs

Tuesday, January 1, 2019
Buffalo, Smallmouth
Approximately 9lbs-12lbs

Not my first ever buff, but my first buffalo caught using euro method rigs, at the lake Somerville Marina in Somerville, Texas. I’ve recently been able to get my hands on some Euro method leads, carp hooks, & hook aligners. I learned to tie hair rigs, and tied a few using 20lb camo braided line. For packbait on the merhod leads, I make my own using panko, canned corn, white hominy and strawberry jello. And for hookbait, I mix more strawberry jello into the water that is in canned corn and let it soak for a while, then use the flavored corn on a hair rig placed in the middle of the method lead. The end result was this guy!
