Default Peanut Bunker nets?

Have any of you guys been using these, if so how good are they? I find snagging bunker a REAL pain in the ass.

How much are the nets and how do they work? Any info would be greatttt because I'm left completely in the dark on this.

Snagging Peanut Bunker is more trouble than its worth. They are small, and number in the thousands when schooled, so when Bass are pounding them, the Bass are hitting anything that moves. You'd be better off just throwing a rubber swimbait or a Peanut Bunker look-a-like lure....the one I use most is a Gag's Mr. Bunker (4" rattletrap type lure). Works wonders.

TAKE A TREBBLE HOOK OFF OF ONE OF THOSE PLUGS YOU WILL NEVER USE AND TIE A 25LB FLUORO LEADER 2FT LONG TO IT. PUT A BEAD ON, SLIDE A ONE OR 2 OZ EGG WEIGHT ON AND TIE A SWIVEL ON THE END. PUT THAT ON YOUR ROD AND CAST INTO THE PEANUTS AND SNAG ONE. WHEN YOU DO, LEAVE IT OUT THERE AND THE WEIGHT WILL SINK TO THE BOTTOM WITH THE PEANUT WRANGLING AND BLEEDING. THE ONLY PROBLEM I HAVE WITH THAT RIG IS YOU MAY SNAG A SCHOOLIE SHORT AND WELL THAT'S NOT SO GOOD. NEVER SNAGGED ONE WHEN I USED TO DO THAT BUT THERE IS ALWAYS A FIRST TIME SO BE FOREWARNED
