I would hate for my net to get stuck on the bottom. Is there any way to avoid this?

Richard Gene The Fishing Machine - 4 years ago
Unfortunately their isn't. I have messed up a lot of nets because of getting caught on rocks. I try to look for areas that aren't as rocky if I can. Thank you for watching Bassman Dan!!

In m y lake we have what we call "Golden Shiners" They look like streamlined carp about 6 to 12 inches long. We catch them on small dough balls or a dry fly. "Snot Rockets" (northern pike) love 'em to death but, Big ol bass love 'em just as well. Also catch "creek chubs" on small jigs, bass love them better than bluegills or golden shiners. Then we have what we call "Mud Minners" a fatter kind of minner (carp) but shorter. I am in S.E. Lower Michigan.

Richard Gene The Fishing Machine
Richard Gene The Fishing Machine - 5 years ago
no problem Jim Thank you for watching! I use them mainly in the spring during spawn when the fish are up shallow. I also have used float in the early fall when the water turns over, suspended crappie. It really just depend on the depth of the fish

So if we use the net for minnow or creek chub than its fine
Richard Gene The Fishing Machine
Richard Gene The Fishing Machine - 5 years ago
Here in Alabama its not illegal to catch any type of creek minnows to use for fishing. However the laws are different from state to state. In Alabama we can even use bluegill for bait although alot of states wont even let you do that. I would just look up your state laws on this before doing it because it varries. Thank you for watching Soua Yang!

Try a 3/16 net if legal. In that shallow of water, fall rate shouldn't matter much. It will keep you from gilling the smaller ones and you will still catch the big ones.

Richard Gene The Fishing Machine
Richard Gene The Fishing Machine - 5 years ago
It's a 6ft mono net with a 3/8 mesh. Most nets on the market now are pretty equal as far as quailty but their is nets that are much better then what you can buy localy like at a walmart. The better nets are at places like bass pro shops but the ones from places like walmart will work fine. Thanks for watching Carroll!

Richard Gene The Fishing Machine
Richard Gene The Fishing Machine - 5 years ago
If their are any creeks in your area where you live, just explore them and look real careful for flashes on the minnows. Look for deeper areas in the creek and you should find em!
