Tips On Net

Postby Treyd7723 » Sat Jan 31, 2009 1:40 pm

Ok I was storeing deeks this morn and I took some pics to answer some questions on "the net"

First off this is how we transport. If you have smaller boat or larger load (with hunters n gear) than you like youll need to pre-set deeks which we do alot when we have alot of ppl hunting
Image

This pic is deployment. Throw front anchors into the wind then let the net just roll out as the wind moves the boat, for calm days youll have to strech it manually .
Image

When deployed get the full spread by pulling your rear anchors tight .
Image

I mend in a head line on all side to strengthn for years of use and it helps keepin it untangled
Image

As for storing just like a shrimp net , under a shelter ,in a barn ect just try to keep it off the ground

Trey

on the other pics it looks like more decoys than that, do you add more as you deploy net ?

I'll admit it there's more to life than duck hunting, but not when I'm duck hunting.

So is the crate/box unrelated to the net? Are they how you store the singles?

what kind of net is that and where can you get it. I hunted over one two year ago and been thinking of making one for myself. doesnt work that great on redheads but it is easier putting out decoys.

I assume that you can't really hunt a dog with this net/decoy spread? Unless he/she was smart enough to swim around it?

Well AK my dog and the other dogs that have hunted with us actually walk right across it Now they cant stop on it but most dogs wont do that they just go across it like a man running across a floating log if that makes any sense to you.

Awesome! Thanks. How are the decoys connected? Zip ties? Decoy line?

I'm assuming they are tight to the net.

It is actually the only ethical use of a gill net. It's a very clever concept. My only concern is the dog getting tangled up in it on retrieve. Anyone have any experiences with it?

I saw this concept being used on the New River a couple of times this year.

i'm working on my net rig now. i'm not sure what would be the best way to attach my decoys to the net and was wondering if anyone had any experience with this. i was thinking about crimping a 2' piece of 300# mono to the net using a crimping sleve (like rigging a loop in a piece of leader material i use for offshore fishing) and then crimping a swivel to the other end to attach my decoys. not sure if the metal sleeve would cause a problem with tangling in the net or not. let me know if you have any ideas or thoughts. thanks in advance.

Im glad you said this I wasnt far behind you.

Great looking rig man. Thanks for sharing. I hunted over a few of these rigs on the sound. It was dark when we put them over and picked them up and the pics cleared a few things up. :thumbsup:

No, but you can get a new net from Harris Net Shop in Atlantic, NC.

i cant tell by the pictures if this is a single or double boat deal. i guess if the wind blew the boat away from the anchors at a 90 degree angle, youd be great....but when does that happen?
