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.

I too have caught shrimp with a seine at Pawleys Island on the back side. I guess my motivation comes from my heritage of seining as a child with my grandfather and uncle. Pop owned a motel and restaurant near N. Myrtle Beach and Uncle Bud has always had seines and gill nets lying around in various states of disrepair. Thanks for the advice on brining bait for the freezer. I actually hope to bag and freeze some mullet to bring home for catfishing this winter. A few Pomps in the surf for dinner would be great too but I expect they will be dining on South Georgia sand fleas by then. The real reason I'm taking it is to have something to entertain me if the fishing is bad. All the materials were free, and yes those are sinkers on the bottom and round floats on the top. Ya'll come help pull!
