Chain Pickerel caught by Justin  Emerle fishing in New Jersey on 09/06/09
Chain Pickerel caught by Justin Emerle fishing on Sunday September 06, 2009 at 17:00 near Franklinville in Gloucester County, New Jersey (NJ), United States North America using a Minnow

Caught this one right at the bank. He hit the minnow with ferocity. I set the hook and reeled him in just to learn that the hook was set into his gills. I cut the hook at the barb and removed it as much as I could. I set him into the water and revived him to the point that he swam off on his own. 15 minutes later, there was commotion in the water about 20 feet down from where I caught him. The fish was flipping out and jumping out of the water and swam to the bottom just to immediately float back to the top. It goes without saying that this poor guy didn't make it. My first killed fish of the Summer, and hopefully the last.
