Area Boy Scout Reels in Record Breaking Pickrell

Jake Campbell

Life Scout Jake Campbell caught the largest pickerel ever at Goose Pond this summer.

Boy Scouts are across the region are camping at Goose Pond Boy Scout Reservation this summer. Activities include boating, swimming, merit badge classes and fishing.

Trying to angle for the big one is every fisherman’s goal. Boy Scout Jake Campbell of Dunmore Troop 66 reached that goal this week. Campbell caught the largest pickrell in Goose Pond records, measuring at 22.5 inches. Receiving plenty of praise and slaps on the back, Campbell hopes to keep his newly gained fame and title for the largest pickrell at Goose Pond.

Excited about his catch, he told a whopper of a fish story to the other Scouts and leaders. He didn’t need to embellish or exaggerate the size. He will have this memory at Goose Pond to store away with years of others amazing Scouting memories.

Troop 66 is full of great fishermen. In 2015, Boy Scout Joe Talutto caught the largest largemouth bass at Goose Pond. That records still stands.

Jake is a 16 year old Life Scout on his Journey to Eagle. He lives in Scranton and is a Junior at Scranton High School.
