Rico's Chain Pickerel

Type: Nontidal
Region: Eastern
Location: Tuckahoe State Park

Rico Del Puppo, age 7, caught a 24.5" chain pickerel in the Tuckahoe River in Tuckahoe State Park on 06/05. It was caught using a golden spoon lure with nightcrawler attached. The weather was sunny and hot, but Rico was incredibly excited during the whole thing. It took a couple of minutes to reel in. We safely released the fish and it swam away just fine.

Rico received a FishMaryland certificate for this catch. Congratulations!
