This website is the place to learn more about my handmade, custom castnets and beach seines, order a net or ask questions concerning cast nets and their use. I also plan for this site to contain general information on cast nets as well as information and tips on using cast nets to catch shrimp, bait or fish.
Looks like we should have a great fall season for shrimping. Lots of shrimp in the creeks right now and plenty of rain to help them grow. The spring roe shrimp season also lasted longer than normal for the trawlers this year.
Just a reminder, as of March 2009 food cast nets will
need to have a mesh size of 5/8” bar or larger (that is 1 ¼” stretch
measurement). On the plus side, there is
no length/radius limit and modifications like taped or webbed nets are legal as
they have been for the past few years.
This site is Under Construction right now, so please bear with me and check back often for updates. I will be adding the section on shrimping soon.
