Pikeperch, also known as zander, prefers shallow, eutrophic, somewhat muddy lakes with lots of white fish. It is a popular game and food fish. There are several ways to catch pikeperch on a rod.
It has been said that “pikeperch is a mix between pike and perch.” There is some truth to this as the fish has the sharp teeth and long body of a pike, as well as the striped back and dorsal fins of a perch.
Pikeperch can weigh in at several kilograms, with 2-3 rather common. In recent years fishing for pikeperch has increased noticeably as vertical fishing has grown in popularity. Today the fish equipment industry offers specially adapted equipment, boats and the like just for vertical jigging.
