i need a new cast net and was going to get an 8ft with 3/8 inch mesh would this gill a whole bunch of smaller fish like baby croaker or pinfish or would it keep them from being gilled any input is appreciated
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!
