Chain Pickerel Record


Photo From: Joe Reynolds - Album: Freshwater

Description: On January 2, 2015 Lee Haile was fishing with his son targeting large chain pickerel in the deepest parts of an Eastern Shore lake where the largest chain pickerel are prone to be found. Chain pickerel do not mind cold water and many of Maryland's tidal rivers and freshwater impoundments hold healthy populations of chain pickerel. They are an aggressive fish and provide a lot of entertainment for fishermen often when other fish refuse to cooperate during cold water conditions. Smaller fish can usually be found along shoreline weed beds and are often labeled as "hammer handles". Lee had a dream of catching a trophy size chain pickerel and he certainly got his wish when he landed this 8 lb monster on a minnow jig combo. Lee's fish set a new official freshwater division Maryland state record. Photo from Lee Haile.
