Atlantic Fishing and Gulf Supply is a company I have ordered stuff from before, but just too many choices, and all over the board on pricing. If anyone can tell me exactly what they bought, how much and from who, it would be much appreciated. I am thinking I need something 12 foot x 10 foot or thereabouts.

Thanks in advance.

Got mine from Harris Net Shop in Atlantic, NC. Not sure if theyll ship.

Harris, Roger Net Shop Inc

141 Old Cedar Island Road
Atlantic, NC 28511-9722
(252) 225-5821

they will usaly ship stuff. tell them how big you want it and what you're going to use it for, they'll know what you need



What kind of net should I ask for when I call them? Being from Minnesota, I am completely clueless about the types of fishing nets and what not. I tried this last year with one of those cheap pond/bird nets and it was a complete mess so I gave up and went back to lines and singles for the season. I'm going to try this again with a legit net this summer and see if I cant figure it out. Thanks

Ug...where did all the pictures go. I have access to net for free and want to try this. Any fresh pics of these rigs would be great. Particularly how the decoys are attached to it. Thanks!

I ran in to a guy at a boat ramp this weekend using a net style rig made by some company in NC. Can't remember the name right now, but it was pretty slick.

I have access to some free netting. Next year I'm going to make one or 2 and give it a try.

Not Braggin or anything-hell it's taken me 43 seasons to stumble on a stupid idea under my feet !!--I can deploy 10 divers/sea ducks in less than 10 seconds. NO GANG LINES only 1 or 2 anchors-if you want a 2nd one !--the Decoys are not attached to any lines except 1--that's right 1 line !!---I'm in lobster country--I finally came up with something so simple it's stupid !! --no more SNAPS except for each set of 5 Decoys and these ropes-yes ropes are 5-6 ft. apart-snapped to each other-attached to the next set of 5 Decoys--again NO LINES !!-no Tangles !!--I really want to market this--I figure a single guy can deploy as many decoys as he wants to with this method by himself !!--Yes by himself !!--not pulling your tail feather's..I have been Sea Duckin and watching Guides for many years--tired of tangled gang lines and trying to snap lead lines to the main lines in chop-really sucks especially in cold weather-forget gloves-that's harder--and then you have to pick them all up individually and un snap and put them wherever !!-as you roll around again in cold weather --you can't beat this method !!--each set of Ducks in a Row-will cost you approx. $ 10.00 each to set up that's stretching it a little. Compared to snap clips, lead line, gang lines, decoy bags etc. You simply pick up 5 Decoys or 10 decoys at once and stack them in the boat--yup-stack them -and they are ready to move to another spot or go home--go in the house and have a Beer !!--this is not TAIL !! :thumbsup:
