Hi guys I'm kenny from the lake conroe area. I have some property about 30 mins south west from the area. There are a few pounds on the property mainly full of bass, bluegill, and cats. I have been catching a new species latley, after some research I think it's a type of pickerel. Would love any input on this fish, and if they are invasive.

Go to the Parks and Wildlife office and talk to a Game Warden. Take the pics and show them. They are very helpful with things like this.

Definitely a chain pickerel. I'm told they're here in Florida as well, but I haven't caught any yet (and that's 20+ years of fishing in Florida).

Thanks! I have been fishing these ponds for 25 years, and only caught the first one maybe 4 years ago. Yesterday I caught 2 of them. I have only caught 5 total.

From those few that I have caught, I have yet to catch one over about 3 pounds. That looks like a pretty nice one. I am sure that the get bigger though.

Pickerel- a bait fish eating machine, they can take over smaller waters.

Believe it is a Grass Pickerel, one of two sub species of the American Pickerel.

Jackfish for sure. Got tons of them in Louisiana. They love Torpedos.
