A good fish landing net is a must. There are many different shapes, sizes, and materials used in fish landing nets. Sometimes you only get one chance to net a big fish, so it’s important that your net opening is large enough for the fish you are targeting. I can’t tell you how many times the guy netting my fish, and me netting someone else’s fish, have popped off because of an issue that happens during the netting process. A friend of mine on the boat that I was on fishing in a Halibut tournament lost a huge halibut that would have placed in the top 3, as we found out once we got the results of the weigh in. The main issue was the guy netting the fish, another friend of mine, did not have much experience at netting fish, and no experience at netting a fish of that size. The second issue was the size of the net was too small, but it was all we had. We all learned a lot that day, the first is that Bo is never allowed to net another fish (just kidding). The real lessons we learned that day is that we always make sure we have the right sized net for the fish we are targeting, and that we have a discussion about netting fish on our drive out to our fishing stomping grounds, so that we make sure that everyone knows how to do it. The fishing nets from EGO are a top quality net, and their advanced S2 Slider is an amazing upgrade for your boat where you can replace the net head with other heads like the push broom head to give your net handle more useability for other uses as well. There are a lot of fishing nets on the market today. The most important thing to look for is what fits your fishing situation, what fits your budget, how long you like the handle to be, how big of a mouth opening on the net, how deep the net is, and the material of the net. For me, I like the rubberized nets, they are more gentle on the fish, they tend to tangle up less, the rubber netting is heavier and the net will go into the water instead of bundling up on the surface, making it easier to net the fish. All nets can tangle with hooks and lures, but rubber does less so. I also like telescoping long handles, so when they are not in use they have a smaller profile, but when I need it, I can swoop out far and deep to get up under the fish to let the fish swim right into the net with less chance of popping off.
