I'm interested in buying my first Musky Net, and would like your opinion on which to buy. I've heard some good things about Frabill 's Pow'R Lok Nets. I don't think I need to buy the best on the market, but I do want something that's going to hold up. What are your thoughts?

I have a Beckman mag finsaver it has a stiffer net coating to help prevent tangles . I can keep fish in the water till I unhook them. mattL

Have you heard anything about those nets from Frabill, " Power Catch Kwik Kradle". Supposedly a combination of a landing net and cradle.

A number of us have Stowmaster Nets. I've been extremely pleased with mine, have netted fish up to 48" without any problems. Archie has netted fish up to 51" with his. The nets fold in half and stores in a much, much smaller package than the Beckmans and Frabills. The nets have 48" deep bags with "Hook Less" netting with a special coating. They are expensive, but you get what you pay for.

Dieter,

Would I be able to get a Stowmaster locally, or shop online?

I've got the big stowmaster and have been really pleased with it. I think it may be a little heavy compared to the others mentioned, especially netting with one arm while fishing alone....but maybe not a big deal if you're not a wimp like myself. Rollie and Helen's has 5% discount on internet orders.

I still haven't figured out how to open it while I'm reeling in the big one. Either open it before you fish or have a net bitch.

With the price of the net being what it is, the 5% discount and Rollie & Helen's is a good deal.

To view the net, here's the link: http://www.stowmaster.net/prod.....product=12

Barry! We really don't have to worry about opening that net too often anyway, do we?? ๐Ÿ˜‰
