Thinking about getting a new landing net for my boat. After perusing a few pictures of Kings being measured for the "Release a hawg" program on the KSFA website, I noticed a few cradle style nets. I have seen these used on large pike and musky in the past but didn't realize anyone was using them for kings.
Does anyone have any experience using these cradle style nets for kings?
Seems like a sweet setup, with much less abuse happening to the fish than would happen in a traditional style landing net.
Also, was wondering if anyone uses a rubberized net for kings? I use one for landing rainbows and dollies but haven't seen any big enough for kings anywhere to purchase.
Want to get a new net for the boat, and was hoping to get some good advice before I purchase something.
