I second the zander id. Basically a European form of walleye.

Look at the lower tip of the tial. Not much of a white spot is there. I say it's a Zander. Second clue, what kind of boat and motor is that?

The motor is a 20 HP Yamaha from the late 80s early 90s. Those things are everywhere including Europe, US, and everywhere in between.

It looks like a Zander to me. Zander grow larger than walleyes. Zander are also sometimes "fed" to unsuspecting restaurant guests ordering "walleye" off the menu too.

My guess is that picture has either been doctored, or it was taken in Europe. If I was going to doctor a big walleye picture, I'd at least start out with a walleye.

Looks like a good eater - I bet thing would be tasty! blush.gifcrazy.gif Um, maybe not....

If zander fight anything like walleyes, that thing must've been a blast to play. I've had 25-26"ers that didn't want to come off the bottom - I can't imagine a 40"er doing a head shake and darting for the deep water.
