Big Pickerel

Dell Taylor

Midlothian Virginia

After a long fun battle I managed to land this nice 24-1/4" chain pickerel on my ultra-light outfit with 4lb test line. I was crappie fishing with a 1/32 oz stinger jig when this big fish engulfed my jig. I was thrilled to finally land it, take a few pictures and release it to hopefully catch again.
