Hey guys, first time poster but long time follower of the forum. I'm in the market for a musky net, and was wondering if you guys have any recommendations. Brand, but specifically size of the bag. I know I should get a coated one. Thanks a lot guys

I own the Ranger Tournament flat bottom. Got it from MuskyShop for $100. At the time, that's what I could afford and haven't came across a need to upgrade. No 50's in it yet, but it swallowed a 49" no problem. With that being said, a friend I fish with has a Frabill Power Catch. Great net and thicker bag makes untangling hooks in the bag a breeze. RS Nets make an amazing net as well. Not sure on your budget but I wouldn't be afraid to use any of these

I have the Frabill Power Catch. The larger nets are nice, but depending on your boat you may find yourself with no good place to store them. Mine basically lives flat on the bottom of the boat. It's a PITA stepping over/on it, but it's the only place where it's not constantly in the way. If I had a larger net it would really be in the way.

I have frabil power catch and have XXL Drifter...Both great nets prefer the drifter...but like stated above the ranger is hard to beat for the price...seen gander outdoors carries them has the rubber coated net is plenty big and is $99 way cheaper than other two above. the RS Net is top notch and top quality but you gonna pay triple for that...

I like the frabils. I have the powercatch and I think it is plenty big. The big kahuna would be nice to have, but if you fish alone or with someone who isn't great at handling the net, it could be more trouble than it's worth.

Awesome, thanks guys. I found a Frabill Power Catch with a 41 x 31 1/2 basket size on craigslist for $115. Is that basket size adequate?

Get a Big Kahuna by Fabril. It is a BIG net, may be too big for some to handle though.

Ranger makes nice tangle free nets (or as tangle free as they get). I use the 34"x30" sized hoop. They make one bigger.
