Andre-Curious if that worm was just sittin' there or you were moving it . Pickerel in my experence usually attack while the bait is moving .Sometimes real fast retreives make them commit .At times I 've reeled in a bait quickly ,see a Pickerel in pursuit ,drop the bait and the fish takes it off the bottom right there in front of me at my feet.

That a way Andre .Great fish!!Now explain where the Padre hat is?

Caught this under a school of bait with plastic worm. And this joker just nailed the bait!! The fish was 5 pounds and just a shade under 25 inches. I hear there larger ones than this swimming in Loch Raven!

Andre tried to reply to your message but it wouldnt send !!!???So I'llput it here; Glad u joined this group!

 

Oh yeah,love catching Pickerel.Any and all fish for that matter.I've had great days on Waywayanda and Shepherds Lake minutes from my house with Pickerel using spoons and Crankbaits.My biggest came on a Jersey Rigg worm rigged wacky style from a small pond though. I 've alo gotten big boys on small feather or Bucktail jigs  out of the small ponds.
  I will look you up if I'm down your way .It would be great to meet you and fish with you .You sure catch a lot of big Bass .Congratulations on the huge Carp!
I hope you share your Pickerel exploits with the Pickerel group!
Take care,
John
