I have made a seine from an old tennis net with 3/8" mesh. It is 36 feet long. The law says it must be less than 30' to use without a license. I rolled the net up on one end making it 29 feet long. I attached a floating line on top, a sinking line on bottom, and a pulling stick on each end. I would have cut the net down to 29 feet but I was afraid the woven mesh would unravel. That's why I rolled it up to 29 feet and tied it. The whole device is 29'3" and will probably be difficult for two people, but we are going to try seining bait with it at Hatteras in mid October. I know the water will be cool. I know it will probably be easier to cast net all the finger mullet I want. I just want to try it. Anyone ever done it? Any advice about when and where besides having my head examined. If you see me at Cape Point or there abouts in mid October, don't laugh out loud, or at least not directly in my face. Help me up out of the sand, brush me off then we will laugh together.
