Do any of you use rubber nets for salmon/steelhead? I have always used one for trout and the land-locked salmon we had back east, but, the net I have is kinda small-ish and I need to buy a new net. I like the fact that they resist hooks, so your gear is back in the water faster, and they protect fish to be released.

Thoughts? Opinions? Experiences...

Like Kodiak said, usually you know. When it comes to useability for boat fishing, the rubber nets really suck. The drag/resistance they have when you swipe them through the water is rediculous and to me, makes them useless.
