Noah and I were out looking for big ridiculous trout on the last day of 2021. It was grey and warm, ideal conditions for just about all of the fishing I do between November and February. But it was especially ideal for pickerel. Even though that wasn't what we were targeting, that ended up being what made the day.
Noah struck first, with a very nice though not especially large one. I then moved along to where I'd seen a very large brown trout roll and quickly picked up the nicest pickerel I'd caught all year. It smashed a white Drunk & Disorderly.
Until next time,
