    Theboz: Congrats to all the great fish you two landed, especially that monster LM your son caught! I can only dream of landing one like that someday.

    Thanks for the pictures. They really will haunt me all winter...lol.
    Shohola lake is the Pickeral capital of the Poconos! That lake is so much fun in the spring ! We skitter big bucktails across the lily pads and the picks come flying up to slam them!
    Used to hunt birds with the manager of your local supermarket !

    In this lake towards dusk the Walleye feed very close to the shoreline and a Clouser close in is probably the easiest way to hookup. We do better than the hardware guys most of the time!

    Funny thing is usually get one or two LMs that size out of there every year late in the season and I guess it was my sons turn for the bigun this year!

    I'm starting to think that Pike to some of the northern states are like Gar to the southern states. Here, people throw gar on the bank for the same reason. It's a shame...

    What fishing I did, I did some with an older man who is trying to fly fish(whole differnet point). The is point is, in his words to me once..."Mike, a fish is a fish. If people aren't killing them for food, why the hell they throwing them on the bank. They all put up a fight." I see that as a good point. BTW Boz...the pics...sighs

    Nice fish, and sorry to hear you have a freeze up already. We're still open in the U.P. around here anyway.

    I often keep pickeral to cook up. They have a fair amount of bones, but have a good taste. Couldn't imagine throwing them on the bank.

    Absolutely! Once you learn to work through those Y bones when filleting those Pickeral are as good as Walleye! Couple of brews and some home fries and you have a shoreline feast!

    Very nice! I am always on to the steel, trout and salmon this time of year. Mostly focus on the bass in the summer months. Can I ask what flies work well for you in the nearly freezing water?
