Anyone doing any good? They should be hot right about now and pickerel. May give it a try over the holidays
Should definitely be worth trying. I haven't been lately, BUT the next 90 days should be prime for YP and pickeral. Might go Thursday and/or Friday.
Went a week ago and caught 5 pickerel, 2 were over 24" and 7 yellers. White perch left the creeks.
Biggest I heard of recently is 26 in. Pickerel. I'll get started this week with yellows and pickerel. It's been Crappie & Bass so far. Gotta change tactics and locations.. Bass have been running 1-6lbs, and crappie 9-13 in.
Fishing can be anything you want it to be
Tried the creek yesterday. Minnows and bobber. Slow at first, one here and one there. Changed to a popping cork with shad dart and Minnow and was pretty steady action. Even caught some white perch. Finished at my limit and released them all. Yellow perch to 12”. Gonna head back out after the weather moderates
No pickerel, saw another boat out looked to be doing the same. Not sure how they did
Great stuff--thanks to all for posting actual fishing reports!
Potomac River crappies are big 15 1/2"
No problem Steve. If your gonna try it, I wouldn’t go out without popping corks. It was all the difference. Like I said, once I changed to the popping cork it steady almost a fish every cast
Can anyone suggest a good lure for pickerel? I’d like to target them next time
