Freddie Shad entices large zander

Tostedt. Having logged eight large zander by the end of January, Quantum Specialist team angler Fredrik Harbort continued to have lady luck on his side at another water in February. On a mild and very stormy morning, he managed to land a powerfully built 90-cm-long zander on just the first vertical drift with the petrol motor. The successful lure was the 20-cm-long Freddie Shad, which Fredrik embellished with a marker on its forked tail on account of the murky water and weather.

Zebco Europe Product Manager Jürgen Masuch is delighted with the lure's performance: "Since its launch, we have regularly heard of spectacular catches with this large zander lure designed by Fredrik himself. We have had catch reports of numerous metre-long zander and countless fish over 90 cm. Reason enough to offer the lure as of now in 17 and 20-cm-long versions in addition to the 12-cm perch size, as well as in new quality and a variety of new colours."

A good decision as it transpired as, just hours after taking a few more nice zander, Fredrik landed another true dream fish of 98 cm in length and with a huge abdominal girth. The take came at a water temperature of 4 degrees  and a depth of just under seven metres.
