About 12" me thinks
Very cool catch.
Hey, thanks man:) If you ever come back to the Susquehanna watershed... I have a lot of luck catching this size fallfish at the tail end of slightly sluggish pools. I have caught a handful out of the main river but I mostly catch them out of tribuataries where they can often be a reliable fish to bite despite less than perfect conditions.
Chain Pickerel: All the bad assery of a Northern Pike wrapped up in a smaller, prettier package.
