Some of you may have already views my thread about making my own bait net but I am curious about a "menhaden" net as well. I mostly catch shad for catfishing but I would like to expand upon my experiences. I have details and some videos on the link in my signature for my 1/2" net I'm making now. I was thinking about making one with 1" mesh about 10 foot with 15 lbs of weights using either #3 or #6 bonded nylon because its thinner than mono for its break strength. I also have considered a cheap 30 lbs dyneema braid from eBay because its stronger and thinner still. Another problem is that I live nowhere near saltwater so I may need a volunteer to test it for me...
