Hello, I am new to this forum. I am in the Chicago, IL area. Do any of you know where I could catch a Pickerel (not northern pike) in the Northern IL area? I would really appreciate it and I really want to catch this species. I am strictly catch and release. Thanks!

I have caught them on 2 occasions in Bangs Lake while ice fishing. They were no longer than 14" to 16".

I’ve caught several 7-10” pickerel on deep lake ice fishing for gills. They are really cool little fish.

They are in the kankakee river. Calm backwaters.
