Pesto Zander Pasta
Mika is back on Big Saimaa Lake and finds a deep dropoff on his sonar so decides to anchor up and do some vertical jigging. He catches a small Pike to start at around 9m down. With no other action here, he moves to a spot he's previously marked, a 10m trench where he quickly hooks and lands a nice Zander. He checks the Zander meets the 42cm minimum size limit before despatching it and planning his Zander Pesto Pasta evening meal. Returning to the shore he boils some water and gets some spaghetti on and whilst that's cooking he shows us how to filet a Zander. He then fries the whole filets in butter. After turning the filets over, Mika smears a generous spoonful of Pesto over each one before mixing the mixture with his cooked spaghetti. As the sun sets, Mika is pretty happy with his bankside meal.
