Fish Picturt - Pickerel

Muskie and tiger muskie typically inhabit swallow areas of lakes and rivers, hanging around outside weed edges and under cover of submerged vegetation. During the summer, when water temperatures warm, large tiger muskies move to deeper, cooler water and hold on structure. If natural springs are present they are inclined to stay near this cooler water.

Chain pickerel hang around weedy areas and along the weed line in lakes. Pike move into deeper water during the warm summer months. Tributary streams can be very productive in spring, before, during and after the spawn.
