I know. Comparing river fish to pond fish to lake fish is like comparing apples to oranges to carnitas burritos with guac and lots of salsa verde. Or Ali to Boom Boom Mancini to Nurmagomedov.

I know it is not currently the season, so during the spring, im going to try for Chain Pickerel. I have only tried Lefferts Lake twice in the fall, but both were very windy days and I could barely cast, so I didn't really have a fair shot. I have only tried Lefferts because it is the closest location to where I live where pickerel are a "Listed species". I hear that Lefferts weeds up real quick in the spring and summer so I dont know how good my shot will be. If anyone knows any good spots that are shore accessible/tips and tricks that would be awesome. Thanks!
Hey guys, I made a video about my yearly trip to the Adirondacks in August. My goal was to catch my first northern pike, but I ended up with a lot more then that. Enjoy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_QsZqAzcCSw
