landing net help

11 posts in this topic

Any good suggestions on devices to get landing net out of the way while fishing but accessible? I have a 18' Prov IFS. Standing up in a rod holder is in the way laying in splash well doesn't work and laying in the bottom of the boat is also in the way. Any practical ideas. Thanks.

cargo netting is the way to go, it will hold your throwable and you stick the net in and its held up against the side of the boat and easy to grab.

I have a net holder (I think it's made by Frabill for like 10 bucks) mounted on the side of the passenger console. It's out of the way when fishing and with quick access from bow or stern. I do take it down when I'm on the move. Works good for me.

I took a 2' piece of 11/2" pvc drilled 2 holes through it than enlarged the outside holes big enough for the screw head to go through and than mounted it to the side of my boat directly behind my boat seat since I dont fish from that side of the boat it is never in my way but always in reach should probably have said I have a tiller boat

Have you ever tried a craddle? They wrap up nice and tuck away in small places.

I have a folding net that actually works. I think fabril makes it. Takes up little space when folded and is easy to put together in a hurry. (ive done it one handed)

I did the same as waterwolff. In fact I put several of them around the boat and use them for rod holders as well. Cheap and very effective.

As Waterwolff and Canuck did I too mounted a piece of PVC pipe to hold my Frabill big game net but mounted it on an angle, about 30 degrees facing back on the gunnel so the net is even with my outboard. It is low enough to cast over and almost completely out of the way and still readily accessable. A bungie cord holds it securely when under speed to a new location.

If you buy a 55 foot launch you'll want a net at the front and the back. grin.gif Should be just enough room for two. grin.gif

    • If you consider the "thugs" as part of the protest group (which DC police even said they weren't, but only intended to do damage) then the answer is yes. The labeling of all because of the actions of a few is something I have and always will disagree with.
    • I clearly stated protest marches and not specifically the womens march. So,knowing that do you still disagree with me?
    • No where yesterday during the woman's march was there violence or racism exhibited. Intolerant towards things Trump wishes to eliminate yes. The damage by vandals occurred on Friday by a group of thugs who had only one purpose in mind and that was to destroy property and create trouble during the inauguration. (DC police even said that and they expected it.) Yes the Woman March did leave garbage to clean up, which can be expected. If you have ever had the experience of cleaning a (female) public restroom you would find out they have a problem with garbage cans. I'm sure most did take their signs with them in the same manner most ice-fisherman take their garbage off the lake with them, but there are some who don't. The top photo is the only one that is of the Woman March.   
    • Can you explain why you feel that way?    
    • I do believe you are out of line with the racist, intolerant, vandals comment.
    • I will slow it down. I did not say you said it was rigged. Your party,however went after Trump for not saying he would accept the election results and then turned around and in large numbers proclaimed they didn't accept the results. I don't expect you to understand the hypocrisy of that but at the same time it's there.   Conjecture. You don't have a single slice of evidence this is the case and you would be wise to retract it because it has no basis. None. Yet even though this is the sort of thing your party is outraged about by the right, you are actually more extreme about it on your side.    While there is direct evidence that the DNC blatantly rigged the Democrat primary in favor of Hillary and committed all manner of things that came out in the Podesta/DNC emails there was no outrage on your side over what they did. Yet you jump on Trump for something that was sold as truth when it was literally the same fake news the Dems have been pushing all cycle.    Considering the contributions that flowed into the Clinton campaign coffers in all manners it would be best to leave that sleeping dog lie.    In the meantime. you might want to take ownership of the mess that the racist, intolerant, vandals that made up the protest marches because you own that.    
    • i always thought they were about identical smoked  
    • Rumor has it they are running a story next week regarding ice fishing and CO. 
    • Looks like one to me. Nice catch  
    • I thought you lefties were against fake news.   Guess not so much anymore.   At least you haven't attacked Barron Trump, yet, unlike your fellow travelers.
