    Brother if all else fails use a plastic laundry basket, 1.00 at the dollar store. Lay it on it's side and guide the fish into it and when he is there flip it up. Cheap and traps the fish as well as acting like a live well to gets pics then flip it back over to release the fish. Also makes a good bait tank just weight it down with rocks to keep it from floating away, never needs air bubbler are the water changed.

    Laugh at me all you want and yes people have stared at me for carrying one before I got my bait bucket, but those same people were seen using them later. I know it sounds funny and looks even worse but it works. I know you were J/K.



    P.S. I still have one I carry down to creek and pond behind the house for the same thing

    me and my buddy have a bait/cooler thing lol. we put all our bluegills in a cooler and we have to hike back to this spot its killer carrying it there. so the laundry baske will become a net!
