Looking for some opinions on EGO fishing nets.
I want to get an EGO slider but not sure on what size, mesh type, etc.. Mostly for fishing Erie walleye.

Thanks in Advance for any input.

I got one, the quality is very, very good but they don't come with a very big basket unfortunately. The biggest one is just too small for trolling if you get into any larger fish. I made an adaptor so I could put my big trolling net on the s2 slider handle and it works good.

When out with @Three Bouys this summer, the walleye were so plentiful we just started hand bombing them in. We still used a net for the pike tourney :p .
Exactly, you don't really need a net for 20" walleye anyway...I think I lost less hand bombing than we do netting them.

I've had my EGO net 3 or 4 years now. Much improved from the original ones that broke the plastic adapter that the net screwed onto. Mine has the 9 ft slider handle as my stern is 3 or 4 feet above water. Have had no issues. Hope this helps.

Yes I hand bomb small pics but I also lost some big trout at the boat last year cause my net was too small. Come on santa

Which model number of EGO are you using? Rubber mesh or PVC coated?

Myself and @Red Hering had a net for the pike touney but size wise could have hand bombed them as well. 😒

I hope next time a big net won't be big enough... we need to tow the pike back to the dock. ;)🀩

the solid rubber mesh is the way to go, hook free and easy on the fish. The rubber coated nylon still gets hooks in it occasionally.

Thats about time 40 fish later when someone ends up with a crankbait in the hand.

I found a net that should be perfect for Team Red Wave.
