I am assuming I need a heavy net, like 1.5 pounds per foot?

Also what brands do y'all like?

Most are pretty heavy but if you invest it one, don’t store them in a bucket wet! The tape will come loose!!!

+1 on storing them wet in a bucket!

Only one I’ve used is the Fitec GS1500. Works great so long as you keep it away from the trees! thumb

It’s 1.5 oz per foot. Hang it to dry after use and don’t worry, it won’t fit back in the container it came in.

Fitec GS1500 is a very good choice. I've also taped 2 myself with duct tape. They have worked fine, but I feel the GS1500 still works better. The Duct tape will keep the net open, but it falls slower than the fabric woven in on the purchased nets of same size/weight.

Has anyone tried the Betts Deep Hole nets? From what I read they don't use tape, they use some kind of fabric that is sewn onto the net. Wouldn't have to worry about tape coming off

Fit tech is really great. 6 throws on spot lock with my old net and nothing. One throw with my taped net and got like 6 big gizzards and a crappie. Taped nets are game changers for bait

I wish mine would last long enough to fall apart. Seems like UPS is at my house every other week with a new taped net.

The fitec is a very good net. It has a sewn in tape. A very wide one. They are very heavy. The one I had had thick sewn in tape. was a very good net until Tawakoni ate it! I have a betts bait buster now. It works great, but not as good as the fitec. Have a Tim wade on order and that should be the better of the three!

I know this is a rookie question, but what is the purpose of a taped net. It seems it would fall slower and decrease your chances of catching bait fish.
