My name is Juan Veruete from Kayak Fish Pa, LLC. We provide professional kayak fishing instruction and guide service. I want to talk to you today about landing net management while fishing from your kayak.
I notice a lot of kayak anglers in my classes like to put their landing net in the flush mount rod holder behind them. One of the problems with that is when you reach behind you, to get your net… A lot of times what happens is you get slack in the line and you lose some big fish that you really want to net. So, what I typically do is save room on the front deck of my kayak to lay the net. I only keep one maybe two rods on my deck at a time and I just lay my net on the front, so I can grab it easily from my seat; pull the net up, scoop the fish, and I’m good. Basically I don’t have to turn around and possibly give slack to the fish and loose a big fish.
