I just bought a net from this guy a couple days ago and I am very impressed. He is a very nice guy, and builds really nice nets at a good price. he builds them just like Helen did for Gulf Breeze Bait and Tackle.
Glad someone else suggest ole Rick!!!! Rick is a great guy, known him fer about 16 years!!! Does excellent work on his nets and CARES bout what he does!!! He fixed a net of mine just right! When I want another net, he'll be my guy who makes it!!!!
Can somone give me some feed back on what size I should be looking at...
Main goal is bait, alewives, menhaden, and finger mullet. Not really worried about full sized mullet but if it can sink fast enough to actually catch them then great. Right now I have a 6 footer, works alright on menhaden from the shore but if I try to throw at a school from a boat it won't sink fast enough. I was thinking maybe a 10 footer? Thanks for the future input.
Ten footer should suit you just fine. I got a twelve footer from Rick last night for mullet. Practiced all day today with it. I also use the ten footer I have for bait and it works very good. Give it a go and mullet net is easier to throw than the smaller net and sinks very fast. I love seeing the fish that maybe I can catch now. Still waiting for that first mullet in the net.
DANG.....you made me call him!!!! I didn't know his place burned!!! He's almost got it together so his net producing is taking a back burner (no pun intended) although he said he is still building them just slower! :thumbsup:
