Default Mullet Nets

Some questions; kind Sir:

I am curious about a 12 foot, 12 panel net. How many meshes do you start with and can I assume that you cut with 2 bars and a point? It must be one monster net! Did you lead it using 1 lb/foot?

When I did cut and sew a monofilament net, I started with 4 meshes on the top with 2 bars and a point and 8 panels. It made a satisfactory net. I once caught 51 Mullet on a single throw with one. It took two of us to lift/drag it in.

Another guy that I met used 6 meshes on the top with 2 bars and a point and used 9 or even 11 panels to make up the net..

Just curious because my netmaking days are over. C2

Net is sold but I have another 10 footer I might let go. I'm going to see what it would cost to add weight and repair a few small holes and if it's gonna be a bunch I'll end up selling it and having one custom made. Most nets don't come with as much weight as I like.

I use 4 on top and 1 bow tie with 2 bars. Your lead line is gonna be the same size regardless of how many panels you use But it's nice to have the panels for the meshes not to be stretched out plus being able get more leads. My 12ft is 1.5"/3" stretch/208/14lbs.

I never go more then 4 meshs at the top. I will just add more panels.

Default Mullet Nets

Pier-Dude:

Thanks for the info. There are many ways to start but, as you say. you end up the same on the bottom with more fullness in the middle. It makes a good throwing net.

I always leaded my brail nets heavier because most were used on piers or boats where transport wouldn't present a a problem. My 7 foot handwoven nylon brail net has 10 lbs of lead and will sink like a rock. It is an 'Easy throwing net'. My bag, or wading nets', were leaded with 1.2lbs of lead per foot.

I also have a flounder net. It has 3"/6" stretched meshes with 9 lbs of lead. It has no brails or horn and uses the Flounder's habit up of rolling up in the net when captured.

Again; thanks for the info.
BTW; Nice Mullet Picture! C2

Charlie you seem to know what your doing but it is fun to collaborate with fellow builders. It sounds like you have some good combos. Nice talking with you.
