Rubber Landing Nets

Rubber Landing Nets

One of the biggest headaches while working as a guide is when a fish and or fish hook (especially a treble hook!) gets tangled up in a landing net. This makes it hard to release the fish… especially, when it’s dead. The netting ends up being all cut to hell by the end of the first week of guiding. Sometimes, that’s the only way to free a hook, by cutting it out.

Use a rubber coated basket-style landing net. Most fish under ten pounds can easily fit in one and the fish or hook won’t get tangled. It’s so much easier to release fish this way, and in fact, you’ll rarely have to handle them, especially walleyes.

So much easier on you AND the fish!
