The zander is a rather active night hunter that can be caught on lures and natural baits. Brightly colored softbaits on the spinning rod or a smaller popped-up deadbait on the ledger rod will yield the very best results.
While having strong visual similarities, these two fish differ significantly in both body length and weight. They are also geographically completely separated, as walleyes are found only in North America and zander in Eurasia.
Most zander venues also hold a lot of pike, which is why you should always use a wire trace when fishing for zander. As the zander is a fairly precautious and line-shy hunter, your best choice is a soft 15lb titanium or steel trace, as these materials are very smooth, flexible, and barely noticeable underwater.
