I use one shore fishing for salmon in early spring bc of elevation reasons around winni from where one would stand vs. where the shoreline is. Besides that I don’t use or carry one. However rest assured I can serve as a great net man and don’t bone fish. One wouldn’t believe how bad some guys are at netting, gaffing, harpooning, etc. many a fish has been lost that way.

Netting is definitely a skill, I have had many people loose big fish on me trying to net it.

Lost a very large Striper because the net was too small. Can never have a net too big...right..

Landed thousands of them from shore without a net.  Up to 52"!  I couldnt imagine owning a net large enough for them.

it takes alot of years to train a good netman.  the worst is watching a 6 pound brookie fall thru the net while the net man just freezes up and forgets to pull the net back into the boat

Wiggles has the net game down packed.

although I am looking forward to teaching my son the skills that I know, it definitely is great to fish with people that know what they are doing. Especially when the moment matters most.

This is an old picture (note the now extinct cod)but the net lives right there, when I'm fishing I slide the handle out , I gaffes the cod...that net has netted bass to 61 lbs and plenty over 50.

Nice Cod, Joe.
I agree, plenty of nets out there to grab 50" stripers and I wouldn't wanta land one in a boat without a good net.
