    went fishing yesterday at the local spillway with fellow member germanmudfish. it was a nice night and the bite wasn't too bad either. We had a real nice run on a big bluegill but the fish ended up dropping the bait and never came back. We did end up hooking a 15# bluecat though just before we packed it up. The only problem is we couldn't get the fish up the rockwall. Since we didn't get a picture Ronnie said he would draw one up when he got home so we can post it in our report.....lmao...Anyways I need to find somewhere I can buy a drop net or some ideas on making one would be appreciated too. There's some big fish to be had in this spillway, but there's not much point to fish it without a way to put the fish on the bank. any help would be appreciated.......bassmassey

    so no one has any ideas where i can find something like this? all i got so far is a smart remark from a fatman.....lmao. I guess i will have to break down and make one. I'm thinking either a big bike rim or maybe some pvc w/ elbow joints. I would really rather just buy one. help me out here........bassmassey

    Aaron, I saw a home made job during my travels this year and I thought it was just the thing. This guy made one from an old bass drum rim. He bought a replacement net for a large landing net and fitted it in between the two rims then tied thick rope in three evenly spaced places about three feet long and brought them together with a steel ring to which he attached his lowering rope. Looked good to me.:big_smile:

    ps Tarzan didn't use a lifevest, just a knife in his teeth!

    Cabela's sell them but they call them crab nets. We use them on the bridge at Safe Harbor Dam.

    Is this wall concrete? The slickest deal I ever saw was an "L" shaped arrangement that was hinged so it would fold flat...had little wheels at the junction of the two legs of the "L", a rope at the top, and wire mesh on the bottom. Sucker just rolled up and down the wall.
