In between chores, we got to walk in the woods the past few mild afternoons. A pretty time of year to view the changing foliage. I took an ultra light four pound spinning outfit along to make a few throws into any streams and bogs we came across and it seems they all hold pickerel. Mostly ten to twelve inch spikes, but I did have an eighteen incher and some of the strikes on the surface are fun to watch. We still have lots of exploring to do and it is always fun to find new spots to fish.
