- If the fish has a crankbait in its mouth, the treble hooks are probably going to get caught in the net. Or they'll get caught in the carpet of the bass boat. For crankbait fish, it's probably better to simply hang on to the net handle and offer the fish to the angler.
- If the guy who caught the fish doesn't say thank you, next time let him net his own fish and ditto if he doesn't help you out by netting for you!
- Watch out for the hooks!
- Don't over-reach and fall overboard.
