Marker69.com will carry replacement bags and full frame nets made of green polypropylene and white nylon.
Capt Lee prefers the nylon material over polypropylene. The green polypropylene bag will out last the nylon bags due to the heavy material. Capt Lee prefers recreational anglers go with the white nylon. She believes if any of your dipping lights are in the area of the box net they will illuminate the net causing shadowing. The shrimp will see the net and avoid. The poly net fishes well in 100% darkness.
