Texas Parks and Wildlife has started issuing certificates again and I just received my chain pickerel state record certificate for a fish I caught in February, while Plnor fishing with a fly rod. The fish was 16.5 inches long and weighed 0.71 pounds. Not a huge fish, but still fun without a reel. I went on the trip to specifically catch a chain pickerel and the state record pickerel was the only fish I caught all day, after 6 hours of fishing. One and done. roflmao

Congrats!
Realizing how small they are here in Texas. But go to Florida and Georgia and regularly catch these high jumpers in the 5 to 7 pound range. I once snagged a 7 1/2 on the head with a top water and that was a battle.
She didn't jump as much but she really put up a great fight and that was 40 years ago.

Lake Hawkins apparently has a good population of pickerel.

Congrats! Didn't know there were Pickerel in Texas, grew up fishing for them in RI, a two pound Pickerel (I guess something in RI is bigger than TX roflmao ) put up a heck of a fight.
