Default Finding Quality Cast Nets

I'm looking to buy another cast net (for mullet fishing), but would like to upgrade to the finest quality I can find; and I'm willing to pay for it.

I have seven nets now, (four purchased from Bobby Burns Cast Nets in Mary Ester, and the other three from Academy Sports). These are excellent nets, but it's time to purchase a customized net for myself.

Where can I find a custom net maker or custom-quality nets off the shelf? Any leads would be much appreciated.

Default cast net

I can let you know tomorrow. The man that build my nets has past away. We found another man that builds them with a lot of panels. I ordered one with 11ft material and weighing about 9lbs. He has it ready and I'm picking it up tomorrow. I will let you know how it is. It cost 154.00

If you are willing to drive to Fairhope, AL Morgan at Fisherman Discount net makes some great quality nets. I have a couple from him. I really like the lead core line he uses for weights.... Less tangles... Doesn't hurt boat... They are not cheap $250-325 but well worth the money in my opinion.

This is my uncle he has been building nets for at least 50 yrs. He has cancer and all business will be greatly appreciated! Tell little Michael sent you! This is the best net I ever thrown. He makes nets for most of the commercial guys in pensacola! You will not be disappointed!

Earl and Pearl Bryant down at Hurst Hammock. Their son sells nets for them at T&W or you can find them three times a week at Community Baptist Church. Earl is 80 something and the nets they make are the best to ever cover a mullet! I'll try to get their number tomorrow.
