USMC, I was using my no-longer unique mode of locomotion a lot if that tells you anything. I converted Leckig to the technique too.

Nice, caught something like that years ago in big walnut by morse road, several in fact always that same pool, thought they were grass pike, but since they aren't common not sure how to tell them apart from pike and musky. The spots are hitting like mad there, must have caught two dozen thursday including a dozen smallmouth, biggest twin 18's.

I'm not using that technique, never had to drag once....

I'd say it's a Red Fin Pickerel. Could be wrong. Nice fish though

Looks like a "grass pike" to me .... pickerel. Used to catch them out of the Darby & Millcreek up to 15 or 16 inches ,but that was when Nixon was prez !!! Haven't seen any over 10" or so in several years. Neat fish & nice catch !!!

Correct, grass pickeral. The tear drop behind the eye is one dead give away. A Red Fin Pickeral would have reddish/orange fins.

Grass pickerel, we caught them often in the Darby out near Orient, but that was 35 years ago. Good to see that they are still around. Hail Trautman
