Aftco Polyester Mesh Bait Nets

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.

Just right for my bait well
Pros
  • Won?t rust!

Great net for the live well.
February 2, 2022
This net is a direct replacement of a previous net that I lost. This one has a bit different design but I fully expect it to last the same 10 years or more that I had the last one. Claims to be floating which is a plus. It is not as heavy or beefy as the last one but plenty strong for its intended purpose. Again, corrosion resistance is the only thing I would worry about. As long as it is built like the last one, it should last 10 years plus.
Pros
  • Floats, good size, easy to use, no scuffs in live well, light.

Good quality and will not rust. Light and good size
Pros
  • Aluminum
Cons
  • Said it had protector on the net so aluminum does not scratch well and it did not. Not a huge deal but would have been nice addition.

Net Should Float
June 11, 2017
After previously buying one of these bad boys and it accidentally falling overboard as a gift to the Atlantic. I reordered to replace the net for my friend's brand new custom boat.
Great Durable Net!
For the price. It should float!!!
Falls overboard.
Kids dropping it in the live well.
Your dumbass buddy emptying the live well.
Any other reason you might want a 50$ dip net to float.
Pros
  • Durability
Cons
  • Doesn't Float

Would this be usable for panfish and smaller bass?...
1 Answer
Hello Marc, 


You'll want a net that is deeper to handle bass. While it may be ok for smaller pan fish it's main use is for netting bait fish out of a live well

Could this be usable beside a bait bait. Maybe for pan gosh and small bads?...
1 Answer
Hi Marc,  

Not sure if you are looking to net small fish that you caught with this net , but  it is really meant for netting bait out of a live well or bait tank.  Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with.
