Predator fishing

The popularity for fishing on predator fish has been skyrocketing. Of course this is not surprising when you look at the different types of fish. Predators like pike, zander, bass and perch are the most familiar. Asp and catfish are the new comers who can attract a growing group. What these predators all have in common is the explosive power of the bite and flight attempts. You can catch them in many ways with various fishing gear. The largest group of predator fisherman nowadays goes fishing with various lures.

Pike fishing

Fishing on pike speaks many fishermen to the imagination and we cannot blame them. It is one of largest fish in fresh water in Europe. This fish with its prehistoric appearance can be catched in different ways. Several predator rods, such as the spinning rod with spinning reel or baitcaster rod with a reel can help you. Crankbaits and jerkbaits are perhaps the most popular lures for pike.

Zander fish

Fishing for zander can also be of great interest. Also for this predator we have a large number of products, of which the dropshot and vertical rods are probably the most populair rods to use. For lures often a shad or small softbait is used. Zander is often fished from the boat, but you can use belly boat, so you can get to the best fishing spots. 

Perch fishing

The perch is seen as a juvenile fish, but the mature sports fisherman can fully enjoy this fantastic fish. Fishing with light and small lures such as spinners and small crankbaits, these underwater knights give you the chance of a great sport.

Catfish fishing

Many years ago catfish was only catched in some parts of Europe. Nowadays the catfish is seen in almost every country in Europe, especially on large rivers. To catch a catfish you will need a special catfish rod, not only because you will fish on large rivers but also because it is a very powerfull fish. 

Who likes fishing for predators can not do it without a good landing net, unhooking mat and pliers. It ensures that you do not lose the lure and fish, and most importantly, the fish is to catch again.
