There are a few rules for good pickerel fishing. Don't fish for them at night, and don't fish for them until four weeks after the spawn. After I got my fill of yellow perch today (yesterdays white perch seemed to have been replaced by yellows) I went to that pickerel pond of mine. You know how it is some times. Things might not look that promising, but sometimes you just have to say "screw it" and go anyway. And because I gave logic the finger this evening I caught post spawn pickerel in the dark.
