I am looking at getting a new net and am wondering what people on here are using. I have looked at some of the sliding hoop style as well as the telescoping handled ones etc. Storage space is always a concern so a folding one would be nice but most of the ones with the spring buttons for locking the hoop to the handle seem very cheap made. Any thoughts?

Depends on what important doing with it. Spiderrigging crappies i like a long handle with a really big basket but shallow net. Walleye i want a large hoop with deep net and shorter handle

I have a hibernet. Its a little heavy, but easy to use,fast to deploy, and easy to store. It was kind of expensive though.

I see they have 3 different sizes of Hiber-Net, which one do you have? Also, I see they have a paddle attachment as well that seems handy......might as well kill two birds with one stone I'm thinking.

EGO makes some good nets.

I like the rubber mesh type. I use the slider for Walleye and the reach for crappie.

I have beckman net with telescopic handle.
Buddy who guide s tried Frabil hiber net had problems with net wearing where it went in tube eventually come apart. He too now has switche to beckman.
I like the coth type with rubber costing so hooks do not get caught in it. I feel it has less resistance in water if have to scoop for fish.

I use the EGO S2 slider


I cannot say enough about what a great product - I had a problem with my 1st handle after a few years use and they just mailed me a new one at no charge and never even asked for the old one back.

i use a rubber mesh and also have the gaff end for SW jetty work

Cheapo Basspro coated net. It works.

I thought really hard about picking up one of those Hibernets when FF had them on sale half off last year, but stalled on it. Maybe eventually, but the one I've got now works good when I need it. Junk fish I usually lip or snatch depending on size.

I bought an expensive Frabil net because of the collapsible handle and ended up destroying about fifty dollars worth of baits because the hooks would get stuck bad in the net. Ordered two Cheap monofilament type nets (EGO?) from Walmart that also have the collapsible handle and have never been happier.

I have a folding net made by Rapala. I use it 95% of the time. It is short handled but I like it!!! I have a cheap long handled net that I use when catfishing.

Not sure of the size, I have had it a few years. Got it right after they came out, I think. The boat is still in storage, but if memory serves me right, I think the handle is close to three and a half foot long and it has a fairly large hoop. I will measure it this week and let you know.
