I know the muskie net question has been asked quite a few times, but most of the questions are for what brand. I am in the process (unfortunately) having to replace alot of my gear since it was stolen out of my boat while I went to get my truck. ( I think Catfish told some of you guys about the ordeal, Anyway...

I am looking for the best sized muskie net. What is too big and what is too small in terms of hoop and bag size. It seems the top manufacturers these days have multiple sizes and different bag styles like Tear drop vs. conservation.

I am looking for a new net, as I have been a cradle guy forever but am looking to replace the stolen one for a net. So, what do you guys perfer? Any insite would be greatly appreciated

I'm a big stow master fan, 36x38 hoop, deep bag, frabil is also a good product, and the beckman, which I think are 38" round have fin saver bags. All are good!

220...., 221...., Whatever it takes.

The Frabill Big Kahuna! Real tough net. Coated net, nice sturdy frame, handle slides in and out of the hoop. A little pricey, in my estimation, but I wouldn't trade it.

One thing I've noticed with the frabils, their gaps inbetween net hopes really beat up the fins. Beckmans are closer together and preserve the fish a little better. And if you fish solo, the beckman glides through the water better with less drag. I had Frabil first, now it just hanks on the barn wall. Now that I think of it................. its for sale. lol.
