I think it is a pickerel. Where did you catch them? I haven't been ice fishing in a while. I have the gear, just haven't gone since '96.

Thanks,
It is a pickeral & the one Jerseyjim is talking about is a ice shanty. When there is ice we fish ever about three day a week in NJ & NY. All fish in the gallery are from NJ. We fish a lot of contest won the kneedeep two time one with a perch one with a pickeral. Won last two years iceshanty.com contest with a pickeral & Crappie. When there's ice if anyone want's to go just e-mail me.
