Sure looks like a smallmouth buffalo to me, regardless of minor mathematical discrepancies.  I'm probably wrong, but does anybody else have an opinion?

I'll be the first to admit I'm not very strong in the fish ID department. I based this off of the measurement criteria on the Black Buffalo page, and it was distinctly fatter than all the smallmouths that size. If the consensus is that's it's not a black, I'll just keep going after them until I catch one.
