22.0" Chain Pickerel caught by Henry V fishing on Sunday December 21, 2014 at 15:19

This is one of the biggest Pickerel I've caught in recent years, and the photo doesn't do it justice. For perspective, that's my size 11 boot. What's missing here is also the girth - this fish was thick around the middle, unlike most of the lean, young pickerel in this spot.

I actually saw this strike, because the water was low and clear. My spinner came past a log and a smaller pickerel shot after it. A fraction of a second later, this larger fish cut the small fish off at the pass, and grabbed my lure. The pecking order was indeed confirmed.

Nice catch, that guy has some serious girth! This is my favorite time of year for Esox
