I use a larger than usual trout net. I usually fish for smallmouth bass. A larger trout net works just fine. I also have a long handled net of about the same diameter that I use from my raft.

If there are big fish to be landed make sure the hoopsize is big enough. A short handle is all you need. Look at the Frabils with the large hoops.
