Monster zander from Croatian river

It's not just the UK where the big predators have been feeding heavily as Dalien Vignjevic revealed when he took this monster 23lb 8oz zander from a Croatian river.

The specimen fish fanatic managed to land one of the biggest zeds ever taken from the Sava River when it snapped up a 14cm Savage Gear Sandeel Curltail in the Ragworm pattern.

Despite trying for years to land a fish of such magnitude, it was his first outing of 2015 and he said: “I can’t explain how happy I am now that the hard work has paid off. Using a lure that was the right colour and size and retrieving it slowly played a big part in this capture.”
