Caught this nice 25-1/4″ chain pickerel on a 1/4oz kastmaster spoon. As I was setting up my camera on timer my thumb somehow ended up in the fish’s mouth and he chomped down. Ouch! His razor sharp teeth went deep into my thumb. Preyed my thumb out using my other hand which got cutup in the process. Of course at this time the camera snaps my picture. Too funny Took one more picture to post here. Man I bled like a stuck pig!! Released her back to grow even bigger. These fish sure can fight.
