Finished up an incredibly nice week weatherwise for our first trip to Pickerel. Didn't get out fishing as much as I wanted, but as much as I could. Hard to pass up swimming with the kids with the weather we had and roasting marshmellows at primetime.
Unfortunately no muskies (limited effort) or eyes and less northerns than I would've expected. Found most of our action in one spot, but that's part of the fun learning a new lake. Some leisure boat traffic and a few fisherman but nothing crazy. Some nice white and black crappie. Hoping to come back next year or this winter in search of eyes and northern. Thanks to those that reached out for tips.
