|Aftco Polyester Mesh Bait Nets|
The woven polyester net — a commercial-grade, knotless, bait-friendly mesh, designed to last for many seasons of heavy use — is the perfect choice for more delicate baits like anchovies, menhaden and sardines. The D-shaped stainless steel net hoops, available in 8 and 10-inch widths, allow for easy capture of the liveliest baits because they’ll reach into the corners of the bait well. The net attaches to the net hoops with a special PVC coil that not only eliminates abrasion to the netting, but minimizes damage to baits during the scooping process, as well as protects the inside of the tank from being scratched or chipped by the stainless hoop. AFTCO Bait Nets feature Gold anodized aluminum handles, with black vinyl grips.
