Looking for a small boat landing net

Recommended Posts

I fish in a 8’ Bassbaby and space is limited. I currently use a short handled landing net that is the right size/length but it’s got a tangly net. I’d like to identify a good replacement, something with a rubber style net that isn’t as tangly. Pretty much have to shop online as no decent stores near me. Suggestions?

I have this net. Rubberized netting, and it folds down to almost nothing when not in use, but it's easy to deploy with one hand if needed.

I have the same one. It sits behind my kayak seat and like you said it's one handed flip open in the times of need.

 

I'm pretty sure it'll hold a world record size bass if needed....One can only dream!

This Carp was 5.93lb's. Looks tiny in the net. Yes that's a lipless crankbait hanging from it's mouth.

Look up the Ego Wade series nets.  I use a 17x19" rubber.  Floats, short handle, excellent quality.  I got mine off Amazon for around 50 bucks, if I remember correctly.

I really like the idea of that collapsible net and will be checking it out further. Thanks! Initially it seems a bit big, but maybe that's a non-issue since it collapses down so well.

 

For comparison this is my existing net. Size-wise I'm still happy with it, just hoping to either replace the netting with a rubber style net or just buy a whole new net. This one has a 10" handle and a hoop opening that is around 16" long and 12" wide.

I use the BPS one that was posted above.  Works great and stores nice and tidy.

I have a short handled Frabill net for my kayak but haven't had a chance to use it yet. It got some good reviews on youtube fisherman I follow. Not sure on a long handled net tho..

Looks like I can buy an Ego small rubber replacement net for only $16 - direct from Ego. I am leaning towards that at the moment

When I musky fished I had a nice net but hated the bag itself. I was able to order the Beckman bag and just replace it. Way cheaper than buying a whole new system...I replace my steelhead wading net bag too, easy on and off.

I have a floating wood handle Frabill trout net.  I fish from a float boat sometimes and this thing is great for tight spaces.

I have this as well. Very solid recommendation for space saving.
