What kind of net ?

I've been using a Cummings landing net with a telescoping handle ( gotta be 7 ft ) on the piers for salmon. The handle is fine , but the net is the basic big hole mesh. A big salmon flopping around can make a tangled mess. I want to upgrade, but I'm not sure  which kind works best. Rubber, Rubber coated mesh, PVC coated ?

I just ordered a RS Net, a musky hoop with a salmon bag and extendable handle.  I have a couple of their walleye nets, a little heavy but  indestructible. I wanted the bigger musky hoop without the musky bag, so they are making it with the salmon bag.

Any of the coated ones work about the same. The rubber ones are heavy in the water if the bag is big so no good for salmon IMOP.

I had the same issue. I didn’t want to buy a new net, so I ordered a ProMar hook resist replacement net and mounted it on my existing frame. I should have done that years ago. I don’t think I paid more than $30 for the replacement net. Purchased it on EBay. Other sites have them too. I don’t remember what size I bought, but you have to measure your net. It’s rubber coated but not as heavy as a solid rubber net. Does not tangle anymore.
