    Iso tracks and rod holders

    Hung, This is Terry (Robs buddy) I have a very similar boat. I would suggest thinking about a good layout for your boat before buying some tracks. You want to have an idea of how your set up is going to work best for your boat and what your plans are to fish with it. It is better to have more track then you think you will need because you may find yourself adding things later without the added cost of more track. It also gives you the ability to move things around a bit to adjust your spread. I currently have three sections of track along each side of the boat for a total of 66" on each side. First a 36" track along each side of the boat towards the back the rigger is all the way back then weight holders then three ratcheting rod holders easily. Next I have an 18" section midship for three planer board rod holders on each side. Finally I have a 12" section on each side for net holders and cup holders, etc. If you wanted to stop by to check it out let me know. Your boat looks great, you will love the Lund.

    Thoughts on Flat Bottom nets

    Thanks Shawn, how are they holding up? It seems like the net material is a little lighter duty than the poly net would be.
  5. Ok so I just ordered two new Ranger nets for the boat one for salmon 34X30 and one for trout 25X25. I made sure they were hook free nets when I ordered them. I did not realize they were flat bottom. After doing some reading they are supposed to support the fish better and keep it "calm". Does anyone have these bags on your nets or do you run the more traditional net with a coating? Below is Rangers description. Ranger Flat Bottom Replacement Net #2525FB 25" x 25" Hoop size 30" Depth (measurements are taken before attaching to hoop) 24" deep after it's put on hoop Hook free, knotless Rubber coated nylon - lighter weight Flat bottom replacement net Directions on how to change net is on the package 5/8" Black mesh Made for walleye & salmon Very popular flat bottom This is the replacement net for Ranger's #491, 978 or 9788 hoop UPC 080785004202 #2525FB

    Net Bag Tamer/Strap

    Looking for some help finding a product that I know I have found before but can't seem to use the right search words to find it again. I am looking for a strap or clip that attaches to the handle of the net and holds the net so it doesn't float into the fish while netting but then releases the net under the weight of the fish. I can't remember who makes them. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Terry

    Traxstech/Berts Net holders

    Thanks John, I was hoping someone would say they liked them. I do see used ones go up for sale a lot and it concerned me that people don't like them. I found pretty good prices on a couple of new Cisco net holders same design, and I can get them in gold like my tracks. I sent them an e-mail to see if they are as tall as the Traxstech and Berts ones. I know Cisco makes nice rod holders. Terry

    Traxstech/Berts Net holders

    Is anyone using the track mounted net holders? I think this may be the way to go while trolling putting one on each side near the windshield of the boat for both nets. The nets are large salmon and trout nets with 8' octagon extension handles. Do you like them? At 15" deep how well do they support the net handle? Do you remove the nets while underway? $120 for a couple net holders is kind of pricey to find out I don't like them. I like to keep the nets extended while fishing, don't mind breaking them down to move.

    Looking to get a couple new nets

    I went with the 34x30 and the 25x25 with coated nets. Thanks for the suggestion!
  13. Pap, I have 4 electric Invader downriggers that I bought used back in the early 90's and they just keep going. Every once in a while I think about buying some Cannon or Big Jon but can't justify doing it until these give up. Hope that you get as many years out of yours! Terry
  14. I am looking for opinions on net sizes. I have an old cumings salmon net with the 6' handle that slides into the yoke for storage but its just not long enough to effectively boat fish while trolling in my newer boat. It worked "ok" in the old small boat with an outboard but with the new boat having an I/O when one guy is standing on one side of the doghouse fighting a fish the net man needs to be on the other side of the doghouse and with the riggers and dipsy rods in the water getting the fish close to the boat can be fun to say the least. My current hoop on the cumings is 30X27 and the hoop size for salmon feels pretty good but way overkill for trout with the 4 foot deep net. The other small net I have is seen better days and has a makeshift extension . I am looking at the Ranger 34X30 with the 8' extension handle for salmon and either the 25X25 or the 28X30 with 8' handle for trout. The boat is a 20' Lund so I don't have a ton of room on board and one of the crew usually gets hit with the net handle at least a couple times a year lol. Below is Ranger's net sizes I appreciate your guys pro's con's and suggestions. Terry
  15. Thanks BigB, These are 8mm X 5MM the same as the power handles Tuna Tom sells that states these will not work, the 47LC is 9mm X 7mm. I may have to go this route and do some modification. I did find in my search that some of the Penn power handles are 8mm X 7mm and need less modification.` Thanks Again Terry
