Wow John! Those are def world-class pickerel and one of my fav gamefish! Matt and I are going to Deep Creek Lake in western MD in late Sept to target some picks and pike and what ever. Hoping to boost my PB which was a 26.5 from there last Aug. We catch many 22 to 24 along with some big yellow perch and pike near 30. Nice work!

These Pickerel come from a lake less than 5 minutes from  my house .Brother Greg and I have done well with the Pickerel  in this small 74 acre Lake .It's a Public Park/Lake and only Electric Motors are allowed . Using the Helix 5 sonar has been invaluable to learn their whereabouts in any month of the year .Through the ice its the Hummingbird ICE 35 that helps. I am finding Summer Pickerel ready to attack in 15 ' of water in 87 degree Surface WT. I am thinking I should find some slightly deeper spots as we didn't get 24" + fish Tuesday but we have in the past . The Four  biggest Picks  the other day hit the 6" Sluggo ,a big Lipped Norman Crankbait ,a Medium sized Bomber Crank and a 4" Keitech Easy Shiner .
