I always wondered how netting fish were over those motors & transom extension. I love it but I worry about it. Do you put your foot on the swim platform?

Dan,

I had same concern but all has worked out fine. All fish are netted off starboard side. Many Hewes owners do stand out on the platform especially for that "tourney fish". I promised my wife I would never do that, nor would I let anyone else. No fish is worth a potential accident. Thanks for the comments guys!

Actually I prefer to net off one of the corners. If I have an out and down in I temporarily swing it to the rear. When the fish is about right a slight turn puts him right in the basket. A good helmsman can see what is happening and do his thing.:) That is another reasons I don't like a rod pointed skyward especially when the fish is close. I like the rod handler right behind me.

Matt, I do likewise but my favorite spots are the corners.:) You may have me on the netting off the bow. I haven't had to try that yet.:lol:
