Details:Fishing has been s-l-o-w lately... I've had several outings with not even a single swipe, or even activity seen. I'm guessing it's due to the Fall turnover(the lower cool water mixing with the upper warm water, equalizing both temperatures and oxygen levels). It should pick up in a week or two... I went out today to Snipatuit Pond around noon or so... again, nearly 2 hours without even a nibble. I decide to make one last cast at a spot adjacent to where I had been fishing and WHAM! my Zoom Super Fluke(in pearl color) takes off like a shot... this guy even pulled drag a few times(8# Berkley 100% fluorocarbon on spinning gear). After a wicked fight(and some choice mutterings about not getting cut off on such light line) I landed the biggest chain pickerel I have ever caught. Not sure if it comes across in the picture, but he's about as long as my arm... no idea on his weight. I thought it was a pike at first because he was so big, but he's definitely a pickerel. That's a helluva way to end and otherwise un-productive day on literally my last cast!
