Just got me a new 3/8 8'ft....loaded on the finger mullet the other day. The ly's were big enough too, no issues there. Lead a lb/ft I think, it sinks fast enough on the shallows... all around a great bait net to have. You'll be ok, no xmas tree imo...unless you run into huge school of tiny LY's... Manhaden should be in full force somewhere around these days....good luck!
