9.0 in. Grass Pickerel caught by Dennis Huskins fishing in New Jersey on 10/10/16
9.0" Grass Pickerel caught by Dennis Huskins fishing on Monday October 10, 2016 at 01:05 near Wharton in Morris County, New Jersey (NJ), United States North America using a #4 Gold Aglia a In-Line Spinner by Mepps

This spot is VERY hard to get to. You feel like no one else has been there. This was my first exploratory trip. Part of this width is do to a beaver dam across it. I got 4 small hits and partial hookups with a soft swimmer and a large Mepps. Landed this guy and I feel it is a Red Fin or Red Fin Hybrid. Talked to Brian and he feels it is a Grass Pickerel or hybrid. Point is: "This is a rare fish". I am sure the other hits were from the same kind of fish, because I saw 2 more of them. What do you all think?

Of course Brian, But this spot makes the Pickerel pond in Chester look like a wide open beach front. Better not to go alone. Boots a must and danger of sinking into deep silted marsh. But I am convinced it has plenty of Red fins. I had 4 hits and 2 hookups in 1 hour, but only landed one. I had no small Mepps that day and the #4 was way to big. I'm off to Cape Hattaras for a go at the bull red drum (Red fish)but will be back in a week and we can talk about going there.

With the larger picture on here you can make out a red edge on the fin.
