Got out this morning for a few hours. Only thing working was a green and white swim jig. Caught a giant pickerel and a respectable smallie (see photos), and 2 smaller pickerel and a 10” smallie. Pickerel was 4 lbs 5 ozs, about 26” - and had just had a late breakfast! Based on the way it’s belly was distended, looked like a 4-5” bluegill.

Wow Don, congrats on the PB. You're probably right, that glutton must have just eaten a panfish before he hit your jig. Nice Smallmouth too. Thanks for the pictures.

Nice catching, Don. That pickerel looks like he just left the panfish all-you-can-eat buffet.
