Well I found some old cast net weights I had saved and zipped tied them to every other weight on my good net. Boy is she heavier, now I wonder if it will spread correctly. We'll see...

I had a net that I doubled the weight on. It pancaked perfect with the extra weight. It also wore me out and when I shredded it on the Jetty at Port A I swore I'd never do it again lol. How much hand line are you adding to the net?

Man , that looks like its going to be a good workout,lol but it should sink way faster, it should also spread correctly with some practice

More than the depth you're throwing plus a little extra for the boat drifting.

Looks good Rick. I add 20 ft of line normally, but in the winter I will add 40 ft of rope so you end up with 65 ft total. Like Bob said, you have to account for the boat drifting.

I thought of doing the same thing with one of my nets. I was just going to tie them on with fishing line. Zip ties are a much better idea though.

Yea I know they would hurt as it is so I gotta try to find em thick so I only throw once or twice. I started tying them with twine then I said... zip ties! Easier n quicker!

The gene pool could use a little chlorine.

Spin the locks on the zip ties to the inside of your weights before you throw it. Should work good!
