From my experiences, pickeral LOVE that hot orange color more than any other gamefish. The louder the better.

Great looking pattern, must tie some up for the spring.
Keep them coming!

Ahhh, pickerel, my favorite FW game fish. That's a cool pattern; I've found that most SW baitfish patterns can be "down-sized" to catch pickerel and other pike family members. Then again, at the size that some of the Northerns and muskies get up to, down-sizing isn't always required.
I think I've taken more pickerel on red/white, yellow perch, and chartreuse over white/pearl than any other color patterns.
