Looking to get a new net for cast netting cigs. What are yall using effectively. I was looking at a 10ft 5/8in 2lb per ft net. but looking for more input from the guys that do it often.

In shallow water, I use a 10' 1pound per foot net. Over 5 feet deep, I use a 10' 2 pound per foot net...same net I use on herring and threadfins.

Thare are at least ten big castnets hung in the Mass. Every year at least that many are lost. They are tore up so bad the only thing salvagable is the lead line.

Cast net leads are high dollar items.

That works. With a 12’ Net it takes 2 people to pull it up.
