Nearest Zander

Post by healdy on Thu Feb 11, 2010 8:30 am

Hi

I have never caught or seen a zander in the flesh ...........but with my newly found pike obsession [thats what the wife calls it lol! ] - i have also found an interest in all things predator.


I just wondered where is the nearest 'real' opportunity to fish for this species is if you are based in West Yorks - and i don't mean that lake with two in Wink - I mean opportunity to try catch some proper zander.

if you mean that lake with 2 in that i told you about mate i'll have you know it held the yorkshire record for quite some time at over 14lb. the bailiff told us that nevvile fickling leased those lakes before he got the lease and apperently released a fair few zander in there, although he has never admitted it.
i dont know how you would go about singling the zander out but you could try for pike and hope a zander comes along. or try for zander and be happy a pike came along

As has been mentioned, the Trent offers the best chance of zander within an hour's drive.

They are widespread throughout the Middle and the Tidal, and it shouldn't be too difficult to catch one or two on scaled down pike tactics on summer nights.

I only targetted them a couple of times this season - losing one close in, but did manage to break my duck with a beautiful 4lber on a whole lamprey intended for pike.
