Thoughts on Flat Bottom nets

Recommended Posts

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

i like the flat bottom. the fish don't get all rolled up and tangled as mush in them. i use my second net a lot less when doubled up on fish because it is so easy to get them out quick

Thanks Shawn, how are they holding up? It seems like the net material is a little lighter duty than the poly net would be.

I like my flat bottom net too. Seems like it stays open better for netting the fish.
