Zander form continues


Fresh from catching a 14lb zander from Grafham Reservoir, Fenland fishing guide Gordon Howes returned to running water to take this 12lb 8oz specimen during a highly productive day on the Great Ouse.

Fishing aboard his boat around Ely, Gordon used a 6ins rubber shad to tempt his fish, while his client got in on the action by catching eight pike to a new personal best of 11lb 12oz.

“Catching this zander gave me a lot more satisfaction than the Grafham fish even thought that one was a fair bit bigger ¬ because this was a proper Fenland toothy critter!” he said.
