Correct pikeperch fishing

The pikeperch is one of the most popular fishing fish in Germany and there are two main reasons for this: On the one hand, it is an excellent food fish and, on the other hand, it is a cunning and mysterious predator who repeatedly presents every angler with challenges.

Pikeperch have an elongated and twisting body that is covered with two dorsal fins. The front is reinforced with spiked rays and the rear is streaked with limb rays, which is why the pikeperch is often referred to as the spiked knight. As a relative of the perch, it is on average 40 to 50 centimeters long. But there are also specimens over a meter in length and up to 20 kilos pulled out of the water. A large zander has a life expectancy of 10 to 20 years. Zander can see and hear very well and are also considered intelligent and shy. Just clearing their throat too loudly on the water can make them flee. If you need tips and tricks for pikeperch fishing, you will definitely find a few answers below.

The right pikeperch rod and reel

Fishing rod and reel for fishing for pikeperch with basic and float mounting are comparatively easy to obtain. Telescopic and detachable rods with a strong backbone, parabolic action, a length of at least 2.70 meters and a casting weight of 10 to 60 grams are suitable for fishing with baitfish and other natural baits. The matching stationary reel should be 0.25 to 0.4 Millimeters of monofilament cord. But sturdy mesh is also suitable for stand-up fishing. The lead weight, possible underwater obstacles and by-catches of pike and catfish should be taken into account when choosing the main line. Free-running rollers are not absolutely necessary as long as the line can be fixed, for example, to a rubber stretched around the blank, with the bail arm open.

Equipment for fishing for pikeperch with artificial bait, especially jigs, requires specialized and sensitive rods and braided lines. Rods of 2 to 3.6 meters and a casting weight of 5 to 90 grams are used for pikeperch fishing. The shaft should have a very hard spine and the tip should return to its original position without much rebound. In the event of a bite, the blank has to react immediately so that the hook can be set in the hard pikeperch mouth with a quick, powerful strike. A rod recommendation from the fish hit parade for soft bait fishing for pikeperch can be found HERE. Somewhat softer rods are also suitable for wobbler fishing, as the bite - in contrast to jigging - usually takes place on pull. Rod rings and stationary reels must be suitable for braided lines when spinning. Usually a braided line from 0.10 to 0 is used for pikeperch
