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.

Pickerel fishing is cool, and lots of opts in many areas that most don't fool with. I just got back from a father/son trip from Richmond Mill and Matt and I both landed our best ever pickerel...his was 23 inches and mine was 25. We had another at 24 inches. I got the 25 on a 1/32 oz hairjig and 2-pound test fishing for bluegills! Crazy!
