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.
The sun fish do taste good but you need big one's I keep anything over 6 inches .I Clean them the same way I clean cpappie & perch . Yes I do fish Hopatcong maybe 4 times a ice season & the two kneedeep contest.
