Figured I’d start this up for you DaveW

2019 Toothy Critter Success thread, this thread is for all successful and unsuccessful Esox stories either it be Pike , Musky or Pickerel .


My first Toothy outing of the year was for pike today, still trying to catch my first one . I knew it was going to be some tough fishing when I got there because of the drastic changes from yesterday and today’s temps . And I was right . I didn’t get any pike but I did catch a 4lb Pickerel. I will definitely be going back out to give it another shot .

The pickeral are definitely hot-to-trot. I got a couple small ones yesterday - they were chasing bluegills in the shallows.

With the lack of ice on ponds and lakes this winter (so far) and the rivers blown out, pickerel can be a cold water option.

Great pickerel! I'm hoping to find some that size in 2019 fishing from my SUP.

Fish tail is okay.

I have a bunch of DTs tied up waiting to try out.

How did the fly hold up on the toothy?

Finally put one in the boat yesterday. It's been since Labor Day last year since I landed one. This 42"er was the first fish on my buddy's new boat. Coincidentally, I christened his last boat with a 42" musky. Wish he would buy a new boat more often...

I was cheating and using live bait. Found a spot in Jersey that I could throw a cast net for juvenile snakeheads.
