What sort of fish does our predator range cater for? Well, the main three are Pike, Perch and Zander but the range covers many different species even including Chub, Trout and even wells catfish. Don’t worry if your not familiar with these species, here’s some more information to help you identify them and hopefully catch more.

Pike (Esox lucius) – Pike are most often olive green, shading from yellow to white along the belly. The flank is marked with short, light bar-like spots and a few to many dark spots on the fins. You may hear them being referred to as ‘crocs’ this is due to their slender body, snout like nose and large teeth which are somewhat similar to that of a crocodile. Pike caught in the UK generally weight between 5-15lb however they can grow much bigger, the British record currently stands at 46lb 130z. Due to Pike being carnivorous and highly aggressive, the favoured tactics for catching them in the UK are Lures, Dead-Baiting or Live Baiting.

Perch (Perca fluviatilis) – Perch are one of the easier fish to identify due to their green body with signature ‘tiger like’ dark stripes, bright red fins and a spiny dorsal fin. Some of the common nicknames you may hear for the perch are ‘wasps’ which refers to a young or smaller perch or ‘Sargent’ which refers to the much bigger, older specimens. Perch come in a variety of sizes, with anything over 3lb considered a very good specimen fish. The current recognised UK perch record stands at 6lb 3oz although larger specimens have been reported but never verified. Perch can be caught using many different tactics, some people fish with a maggot or worm on the float, others prefer to ledger a prawn. However, the most frequently used tactics are Lures or Dropshotting.

Zander (Sander lucioperca) – Zander usually have a long and muscular body which bears some resemblance to a Pike. The upper part of its body is green-brown in colour and this extends onto the sides as dark vertical bars, while the lower part of the body is a creamy-white colour. Zander are a lot less common than Pike and perch in the UK but are still found in a lots of our waterways and lakes. They are often caught up to around 50cm however the current record is 21lbs 5ozs which would’ve made it around 100cm in length. Zander prefer to feed in low light condition and often feed through the night. Much like pike they are mostly caught on Lures, Dead-baits or Live-baits.
