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.

      Another week has come and gone up here at the Angle. The weather sure changed for us up here. The week started with below zero temps and we ended the week in the 30's with some rain mixed in. It still didn't affect the fishing, as houses produced their limits of fish once again including a 31", 11 pound walleye! On the Minnesota side, we still have our houses scattered all around in 22-28 feet of water. Gold, pink and green were the best, tipped with a minnow or minnow head. We have had perch and saugers mixed in with all the walleyes, too! On the Canadian side, the crappie and walleye bite has been very good! Crappies have been in 28-33 feet of water. Only fish to your limit and then switch to another species’ for the rest of the day. Walleyes have been great in 22-29 feet, using the same colors as the Minnesota side, tipped with a minnow or minnow head. This is Forrest Huset with another fishing report. We hope to see you all at Sunset Lodge this winter!
