Dou­ble-fig­ure zan­der boated from Grafham

Angling Times (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

A 350-MILE round trip in search of a big zan­der pro­duced a great re­sult for Gary Knowles when he boated a 12lb 2oz spec­i­men.

The Cheshire an­gler made the long jour­ney to Grafham Wa­ter in Cam­bridgeshire and headed straight for deep wa­ter.

Us­ing a 40g jig head with a Quan­tum Fred­die Shad lure, he had a take on his first cast but lost the bat­tle. De­ter­mined to set the record straight, he in­stantly chucked the bait back into the same spot and was im­me­di­ately re­warded with the big­gest preda­tor of the trip.

Re­turn­ing the next day, Gary car­ried on the ac­tion with sev­eral other zeds to a best of 10lb 4oz.
