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
