Guys, anybody know where I can find a rubber coated nylon net replacement basket with 3/8" holes (like this one)? Don't want the all-rubber one. Thanks

most tackle shops carry them i have seen them in Walmart at times.

But try JannsNetcraft. They sell them for sure.

Rod Building Supplies | Lure Making Supplies | Fly Tying Supplies | Fishing Hooks (http://www.jannsnetcraft.com/)I looked there before I posted, and the rubber coated one they have looks like it has the big holes like most standard nylon nets have. PVC Coated Replacement Nets, Replacement heavy duty landing nets (http://www.jannsnetcraft.com/replacement-nets/934147.aspx) Other than that, they have a solid rubber one......those are heavy when using a long handle. Need rubber-coated one with the smaller mesh so 1 oz. bell sinker won't go through, and hook won't hang up in nylon material.

https://www.adventureproducts.com/index.htmlYeah speck, I saw those. Not really wanting to buy another whole net, just want to replace the net basket on mine with one of the rubber coated small mesh baskets. What I've got is one of the soft cloth type bait nets that has a 9' piece of 1" round aluminum tubing coupled to the net handle I use when scooping up a bigun when slow trolling with 14' poles. It's light as can be, and can actually be used with a pretty good reach out with one hand. Only problem is, when using double hook rigs, the "other" hook is gonna find a way to dig into the material, and is a pain to get out. My buddy has got one same length with the all-rubber basket. Works great, but is bad heavy when reaching on out there.

If the net is in good shape you can recoat it. Get a can of plastic coat , roll net up and dip in can and hang up till dry wear gloves cause it is messey,but its like new.
