What does everyone use or recommend for a net to use to bring fish up from the water?

In addition, any recommendations on a cart? Would prefer something on the smaller or collapsible side.

Keep in mind, I am trying to keep my costs down a bit, but can spend more on something if it is really worth it.

Thank you

Up from a pier? Then the standard I would think is the double ring hoop net often used in crabbing, though you can find some that are marketed specifically as "pier nets". They can range from $10-$50, but I find most in the $15-30 range. A quick search for "pier net" or "crabbing net" on Amazon will give you a good idea of the variety out there. Also, if you're in an area where a ton of recreational crabbing is done, it might be helpful to look at your local classifieds, yard sales, used goods shops, etc.. for people wanting to offload them. Or even post on craigslist that you're looking for one. Mine came from a neighbor in my apartment that saw my fishing stuff and wanted to get rid of her hoop net, so it may be possible to get one at no cost.

Thanks for the info. I found one that I believe will work for $35. I will put out a request on craigslist but being inland, probably a miss, but who knows.

For whatever reason, the previous crab nets that I had came across, reviews were saying not string enough to lift a decent fish up. Guess that depends on each persons idea of "decent"

I've used this hoop net for years and pulled up many a different fish.

I believe there is a maximum diameter on ring crab traps , I could be wrong !? Does that include unbaited traps being used to land larger fish ?
