Net size

9 posts in this topic

I need a new net, and am scouring the 'net for some good prices and to see what is out there.

What size of net do I need for walleye/bass fishing? I want to be sure that I am getting something to handle the networthy fish, but it also needs to be able to handle a good sized esox when I run into one on the water.

What size of net do I need for this?

Should I assume this means I should keep grabbing them by hand, or maybe get a boga?

I think you've answered your own question. You need a big net if you want to bag a good sized muskie without stressing yourself and the fish IMO.

Sound like you really need two nets. I don't recall the size, but I have one net that is perfect for walleye and bass(20"x20"?) and then I have a monster net for pike and muskies.(30"x40"?) I even have a smaller one I use in the spring for crappie fishing.

I don't like having that big net in the boat unless I know I'm going to need it.

like rods, reels, and line; do not think there is a one size fits all.

Check out the new folda nets. They are somewhat pricey but they take up less room and you can whip them out in a flash. Beckman makes some nice nets and they are good quality and last as well. Tunrevir~

DOnt be so concerned about the size of the opening--but the depth and the quality of the net itself, a smaller head is easier to pull through the water when netting. A telescopic long handle is a must, no plastic anywhere (especially collars) on the net EVER--it will break, good luck

    • For something different and a little less expensive you could consider a Texas hog hunt.

    • Not nails but worse, they are self tappers from the metal roofing:)  Sorry, I need to take the angle grinder out there and zip those off this weekend.  Funny you bring up the name kabob, that is actually the name of one of them if they don't produce:)   Here is a short list of the names my kids came up with:   - Kabob - Soup - Nugget - Fried - Drummie - Pot Pie   I cant remember the others but you get the point...    
    •   I agree that in the long run, the very best thing that could be done is to completely repeal the ACA and then continue to reduce government involvement. The problem with that is this is a messed caused by government that would become a disaster at least short term for some folks if it were immediately repealed. At this point, government created the mess so it has an obligation to fix it with as little damage as possible to the people.
    •   No, I'm not totally discrediting any preventative measures, in fact I have stated time and time again that it is the best  safeguard against MOST diseases and other ailments. The fact though is that it will not safeguard you against EVERY ailment. You even go so far as to predict that you will still get cancer in your lifetime. If your preventative measures are a cure all, why do you believe you will still get cancer?   No matter how diligent you are with preventative measures you probably will not keep every ailment at bay. All I am saying is that when you are older you will find this out. I haven't seen anyone live forever yet.
