I was right on top of some shrimp today and had one jump in the yak. I was thinkin if I only had some kind of dip net that is big enough and sinks fast enough. something like the crabbers use but a good bit shorter. Anyone have anything like this?
I picked up a 4' cast net recently and have been practicing throwing it while sitting in the yak. Too Busy's vid was definitely a help (thanks) and I think I could manage a bigger net if I wanted to. I use a 7' when throwing from a bank or dock.
The only problem I had was, I'd watch a school of mullet coming down the creek I was in and I'd pick up my arm to throw and they'd see the movement or the kayak and they'd sound so I'd have to guess where to throw on them. I was getting some but missing a lot.
Hey Captain Dave I've had good luck standing on my knees with my six foot, a lot easier than standing when your back is hurting, but I think I'm going to try Too Busy's throw, think that would be even better. Cool video thanks
