I caught a 20 incher right down from pier 7 marina yesterday. Caught it on a yellow rooster tail.

Capt Nick: I have been at it a long time,---- and I feel like it sometimes too.
Your friend on Seneca creek probably caught more than a few large pickeral, Seneca cr was a known hotspot in the 70's for very large Pickeral. the publication "Fishing in MD" was always loaded with citation Pickeral taken from Seneca Cr.
I did not have a boat at the time or I would have fished it with great pleasure im sure.
The largest pickeral I ever landed came from Bowers pond in Salisbury MD in the late 60's, it was within a 1/2 " of your friends catch it went 35 1/2". Taken on a 3/8 oz purple and white "Bass Hog".
Pickeral have always been one of my favorite fish, and I still love to catch one even if they are under 12", I just like to see them.
Nice fish, John. Congrats and good luck on your, yet another business trip. It sounds to me like you're working harder in retirement than you did before!
You've now learned where to find them in the summer.
Which Seneca Creek? Baltimore County????
Yes,--- Seneca Cr. is part of the Dundee Cr. system, upper Bay, western side.
I don't have a map handy, but is likely Balto Co.
Good luck if you are going to try it someday, the rest of us would be interested to learn if you do well, or not.
That's the one.The end of Carrol island Rd at the power plant.It used to be open all winter for fishing the warm water discharge.I used to put my kayak in there 10- years ago during winter.We'd catch Bass,Pickerel,white , yellow perch and Stripers,all winter.It got trashed so bad,they closed it to the public, about 6 years ago.I caught my first tidal river Pickerel there in 67,it was 2#.Back then,in the fall,the water was clear enough to see 12 ft. to the bottom.I don't believe they still discharge warm water there anymore from what I've heard from the winter Bass fishermen.
