Better late than never, but here's some highlights from a great day of fishing on the Batsto River at the end of April. A 22" 21" & 19" pickerel. Also had a bunch of 8"-12"ers, about 15 fish all together. All were returned to the gene pool. Had a bald eagle cruise by so close I could see his yellow eyes. I've seen this guy almost every time I go there in almost the same spot every time.

Lightly weighted soft plastic minnows dead drifted like a nymph in the channels and bends and Mepps Timberdoodle with a short soft plastic trailer fished deep in the channels.

Also had one that had to be pushing 30"+ ram the kayak on my figure 8 at the end. Scared the crap out of me and almost fell out. Don't know how it didn't knock it self out it torpedoed me so hard.
