Chain Pickerel

Also known as Jack, it is by far the easiest of the pikes.

Hickory Shad

Often smoked but more frequently pickled.

White Sucker

A common bottom-forager, frequently found in bars.

Freshwater Drum

    Oh, are.

    Just amazing. I couldn't think of that if the astronaut's lives depended on it.
