  • Redfin or Chain Pickerel in Beaufort or Hyde Co.?

    Hi folks. Do any of you have experience with catching pickerel (redfin or chain) in in Beaufort and Hyde Co? I grew up in Ontario and miss catching Northern Pike and I'd like to catch one of these little water wolves if I could. (I actually did catch one in Hyde Co. one time and not since).

    Are they fairly prevalent? Is there a type of water body I should be looking at? The current issue of the sportsman magazine features an article on the redfin down on the Lumber River - also a tannin-stained water body.

    There are other fish I'd RATHER catch, but I wouldn't mind purusing these critters a little, in my canoe with my kids.
