That is a beauty. I love the markings on them.

Beautiful pick! Can't beat those bright winter markings on them nor those little Jersey ponds where they live! Congrats!

They're the smallest of the Pike family but nobody told them because they fight like animals. I actually caught this guy in a pond on Staten Island. I was back home renewing my license and couldn't resist wetting a line in my childhood waters

Most of the Bass guys around here complain about them. They have sharp teeth and tear up their fancy soft baits, plus they're slimy and you can't lip them for taking cool pics I enjoy catching them as much as Largemouth.

I love to target pickerel. I have found many left on the banks to die. Presumably by bass fishermen that are trying to control the balance of the bass ratio in the lake. Last year I found 4 in the same spot on 1 lake. I hope the beavers/muscrats found them and had them for dinner.

I run into that too. I hate when amateurs decide to play "fishery manager". It's the same guys who catch Largemouth on live shiners then hide the hook when they take pictures so no one knows they're catching them like a 10yr old.
