My big pickerel had food in its mouth (not my bait) and a full tummy!

The Jackfish on this lake are so much smaller than the ones at our cabin, biggest one I've seen here.

Thanks, its always a blast!
Pickerel cheeks are soo good, I like to make chowder with them because they stay firm and don't fall apart. The cheeks are amazing fried too! I will post the recipe when I make it :)

Great fishing.
But your roads are very similar to ours.
