I tried to harvest one the my bigger fish today and I couldn't figure out how it kept getting out of the net until I realized it had thrashed about so much it created a whole large enough to escape out of. Time for a new new!
Hopefully I will have better luck tomorrow :-)
you can use a FISHING net. They are a lot more durable and designed to handle the larger fish. Aquarium nets will get shredded lol ....
I had a fishing net, it was just really old (at least 30 years) and it just got too brittle, Borrowed another one from a coworker and easy catch!
