Fishing with the float is an excellent technique for precisely presenting a dead bait fish in front of the zanders mouth. Furthermore it`s a thrilling kind of fishing. What can be more wonderful than observing a beautiful, slim float rising to the water`s surface and then – after some convulsions – sinking slowly to the depth? We have developed two special zander floats for this technique. They feature an external line tubing, two bodys and an oval antenna. The buoyancy is about 4g and 5g – depending on wind and current. The central float is much bigger than the second one, which is placed at the long antenna some centimeters above. The float should be loaded in a way, which keeps only the antenna visible. Ideally, the float should be moved slowly after the cast by a short lift of the rod tip. Thus the float is rising up to the big central body and then sinking down again until the antenna is brushing the water when the rod tip is lowered. It is very successful to make some stops while retrieving – thus a following zander is getting the chance to attack the bait fish. A small stint is an excellent bait, but also a bleak, a small roach or a little bass are perfectly suitable. You will get the most bites during the float sinking down again slowly. The next time you raise the rod’s tip, the float is remaining in the depth – an evidence for the zander having caught your bait. Afterwards the float often rises angular to sink slowly to the depth soon after. The most important benefit of this technique is, that you are able to scan a large area and to get a good idea of the ground’s relief. Sometimes it only needs a little floor unevenness to gather several zander.
