  1. Pretty fish, do you fish the jig below a float or just bounce it off the bottom?
  2. Great yellow perch imitation. I'm sure the big pickerel make yellow perch a big part of their diet.
  3. Thanks.
  4. I'm was thinking about doing the same thing. Here is a excellent video I found about this.
  5. Which size kroc do you use? I found a good deal online but not sure which size to get.
  6. Awesome looks about 5 to 6 pounds.
  7. Nice fish, I only use lures with single hooks as well for these fish besides rooster tails, I crush the barbs on the hooks for a quick release. These fish are aggressive but fragile at the same time. I try to wet my hands before handling them or just unhook them in the water.
  8. Which swimbait?
  9. With the cold weather settling here in NJ, the pickerel are getting active, big ones too. For me when i'm fishing a bigger lake and need to cover lots of water I like to throw a Johnson Silver minnow with a curly tail grub attached. For smaller bodies of water I like to throw a zoom super fluke rigged weightless. I also got my eyes on a lure called the krocodile spoon but i'm not sure what size I should get. Bundling up and wading through shallow weeds for these toothy critters helps get rid of the cabin fever.
  10. Thats what I thought, i'm using a circle hook so the hookup ratio should be good. I caught plenty of stripers on blood worms in the spring when using the drop shot. The main reason I use it in the river is so I don't get snagged. Sometimes I overthink things when it comes to fishing. Lol
  11. I have been using this rig from shore with success for spring run stripers in the river. When fishing for fall run stripers in a river or surf, is it better to fish a finder rig with the bait lying on the bottom? I'm fishing from shore and i'm using clams and blood worms for bait. Sorry for the dumb question i'm still new to this striper thing.
  12. My buddy and I were fishing last night and couldn't believe our eyes when we saw this sunset. Never quite seen anything like it before.

  14. Another great thing about big bluegills is that they mainly have big bones which makes them easy to eat.
