Frabill® Minnow Seines
I purchased one of the larger nets. The net does not work well in shallow water. If I could I would return it or throw it out. It was a waste of money. Very bad engineerung.

Minnow & Fish nets
I bought the best fish net you sold. It is the large net with the telescoping handle. We extened it the 1st time we were using it,in our pond,and the darn handle broke,without even any fish in the net! It was empty,we were just skimming the top of the water with it,,so that was a bust. We then stretched out the 20 ft long,4 ft deep,MInnow net you just had on sale. The weights were so light,the net didnt even sink,the floats keep it on top of the water just fine,,but the weights are too light,and would not sink the entire net down,that also,,was a waste of money. Yes,,we would have returned the products,,but the net might work OK,,in a shallow creek,,does NOT work in a ponds,as some other reviews said,,and I lost the recipt for the telescoping net,plus it is 1 hour drive for us,to the store,,so we figured The heck with it,,just wont,,,just will not shop there again,fot those items.

We found the mesh sizing to be uniform, the float adequate, but because the poly material the seines are made of are is somewhat bouyant, we will be adding more weights to the bottom. Our seining is done on the shores of Long Island Sound, and many species of fish have an escape route under the net.

This is a really great net! We have used it for waterdogs, shad, and bluegill with no problems. The product functions just as advertised and is made well enough to keep bait wells full for years! Thanks Bass Pro Shops!
