looking for a new net for salmon/musky
« on: August 25, 2016, 08:53:11 pm »
Looking for a larger net suitable mostly for salmon/big lake trout, but also for any musky that scares me to just hand land. Was thinking about a Lucky Strike 3208 as this net is only $50 at Cabelas, but I'm willing to spend more if this is a piece of crap. Has anyone used this net? I'm willing to spend up to around $130. Anyone have any recommendations?

I have a big Lucky Strike net, unsure what model, and am happy with it.
Does that one have a fibreglass or aluminum handle,  fibreglass is lighter.

BTW there a new Cabela's store opening in Ottawa come September.

Mine is a B48, big basket net.  Don't like the nylon netting of the 3208, rough on fish.

You yak fishn ? Right on, will be out lots on weekend.
The B48 is big and a bit of a pain even on a PA, maybe the B46 with fibreglass handle ?
The bag maybe a bit small.

PB's are nice.

Ideally the best big net is a Frabill Big Kahuna !
A bit pricey eh ?

That would look good sticking out of an Outback.

( That 37" salmon last year just fitted in the B48 )

Ended up getting a Frambil Conservation Series.It cost more then the Lucky Strike, but has a few features I think we're worth the extra money. It automatically locks in place when extended, so no turning the handle to find the spring lock and having to press the button in. It also has a much deeper basket. The handle does seem long for the yak, so I'll probably end up cutting it down some.Now to figure out how to make it float.
