Monster Chain Pickerel Caught Kayaking NJ Pond, My Personal best 2015

While Kayak fishing, i have hooked on a monster dropshot fishing at a south jersey pond. I landed a chain pickerel that was definitely heavier than 5 lbs. My brother previously hooked onto one that was 4.7 lbs that was a bit smaller. Trip was on July 3, 2015. On my Jackson Kayak Cuda 12.

As you have noticed, I am watching my fish finder as I am familiar with the area. I was fishing around a side of a point where i was constantly seeing fish after the dropoff because there are weeds after it. I put my lure down right after the drop off and when then weed starts and BOOM goes the dynamite! The pickerel smashes my lure and i was in for one heck of a fight!

And yeah.. I screwed up the text in the video... I must have hit the Undo button 1 extra time LOL.....
