Hey John...Pinchot Lake, 20 miles south of Harrisburg has giant pickerel. I think I'm gonna keep fishing it until ice up, it has crappie that have gone 19 inches and pickerel to just under 7 pounds. Big snakes to 28 inches are not rare here. Yesterday I got 50 crappie there, all 9 in and under, and saw another angler with that many but he kept 8 or 10 big, 12 inch plus slabs, including one over 15 inches.

Here are New Jersey records

Pickerel, chain 9 /3 1957 Frank McGovern Lower Aetna Lake
Pickerel, redfin 1 /13 1982 Gerald Humphrey Lake Assunpink

That 9-6 is an astounding, long-standing record. Anything over 4 is noteworthy and citation sized in most states. A 5 or 6 pounder is exceptional just about any where. MD record is 7 lb 9 oz. and PA record is 8 lbs. 8 oz...one of the largest on record.

Virginia has good pickerel fishing in the Chickihominy River and in tide water lakes region around Suffolk...Lake Burnt Mills, Prince and Cahoon.

clifford,
i would try shiners shallow about now... i have heard of people catching piks in the southern us in the colder monts

also something for every one to think about, the all tackle world record is 9lb 6oz caught in Homerville, Georgia on February 16 1961... just something to think about

Clifford -I see you're from Virginia . Do you have Chain Pickerel ,Grass Pickerel and Red fin Pickerel there? I only catch chain Piks up here in NJ. I saw what I thought could be a Redfin Pickerel once but didn't have a pole.
