As the spring is well on it’s way, we went zander fishing from shore.

I’m not quite sure which to call the fish: pike perch fish or zander fish?

How to catch zander?

We tried hooking pike perch with lure and fly.

The fish were definitely so deep near the bottom, that my attempt with floating line was hopeless ?? 

Nonetheless, fun day watching the remaining ice get going and make way for summer.

At least on this little test trip zander or pike-perch fish was hooked with lure. More specifically grey and silver jig was the most effective one.

Silver tinsel streamer fly was not effective. Obviously this was not the most scientific test, as I was really ill equipt with just floating line, and anyhow I spent big junk of the time filming.

Fish were very deep near the bottom, so we couldn’t get the fly to sink enough to catch zander fish.
