landing net help


leechlake

Question

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

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

      BW is not a designated Trout lake. The limit is the same as state which I think is 5 bows. Don't think there is a size limit either since they don't breed.

      Rotes, Hi, I just joined this forum and these corner caps are just what I have been looking for. Is it possible at this late date to get a set of these made for my Lund? The only difference I can see is the color of the material. Would you be willing to make a set for me? Thanks, [email protected]

      Any move requires time and effort, but if you turn to a moving company for help, then some of the problems will disappear immediately. Firstly, the guys from the moving services always take care of the client's property, pack and carefully transfer your things to the car. Secondly, when moving with movers, you do not have to worry about the road, they choose the fastest and safest way, as they have extensive experience in transportation.

      Anybody know how much the lake temps have dropped?   Are people have the most success with minnows vs crawlers when fishing with live bait lately, or are crawlers still working?

      Snuck out last night, water Temps down to 54-56, last Thurs mid 60s. Fish were finicky. Leaves are changing quickly here, lots falling. Two weeks should be a lot better in the woods

      I agree with the previous comment, you could save a lot of money by making your website first .. its design .. and then if you want to move .. but if you want, you can immediately ..-) look here: https://digitalsuits.co/hire-developers/hire-shopify-developers/

      I think that even at the initial stage, you need to consult with specialists who have been working in this field for a long time .. and then you will really get the result .. otherwise you can spend a lot of time and in the end you will have to redo everything .. for example, look here: https://www.softformance.com/services/software-consulting-company/

      The best solution in this situation is to create the software yourself, and then turn to testers who will check everything. Although, if you manage to develop software, then you will have the strength to test it yourself
