What is the best landing net for offshore fishing?
Until recently, Scott Walker didn't carry a landing net on his boat. Why? Simply no place to put it and most telescoping nets were just not strong enough for the fish he was catching.
The Frabill Power Stow line of nets are the ideal blend of form and function. The Power Stow series of nets offer the strength and toughness to subdue big, surly fish. When not in battle, it conveniently stows ready for the next triumph. These nets are super strong and are easily capable of lifting a 100 pound fish into the boat. Most of the fish that we choose to net are smaller than that so there is no worry about the net standing up to the task.
In this video, Scott goes over several reasons that he likes to carry a net in the boat now that the Power Stow folds in half and a really big net can easily fit in a hatch.

“I’m just rigging up a squid, a little heavier duty than I need to. I am attaching the body and the head to the hook so that if he slashes it - he can’t just tear it in half without having to come back with something all in a knot. It can hit this really good and it will still hold together. It is a little bit more than you need to do, but these baits are soft and they are so far down I like to have a second chance…
Yeti keeps stepping up their game. Here is the new Yeti Loadout Bucket. The strongest bucket ever
Each of the fish we fish for have ways that they can be held safely. There are very few fish that we catch that do not have dangerous parts. Teeth, sharp fins, bills or gill rakers can all cause damage to your hands while other fish just react wildly to being held.
As a Captain or an avid fisherman, it is important to know how to handle each fish to get it in the Yeti or to release it safely and unharmed.
