Fishing the Keyhole

The Keyhole Lake is a great place to go pickerel fishing. Even on a windy day you can find a calm cove and New Brunswick pickerel are all about calm water and lots of weeds. Pickerel are aggressive predators and usually swallow their prey whole, so you always know when you are getting a bite. A steel leader is a must for this fish as they have several rows of razor sharp teeth that will shred even the toughest line. It is also a good idea to use pliers to remove the hooks. Personally, I am a catch and release guy, but these fish are good eating. As the day ended, the  osprey was glad that I was done sharing his fishing spot and even the sun seemed to be celebrating a great day with one last hurrah.
