Is 5/8 the law for food shrimp? You won't catch many with 5/8. Unless u r on the big ones. Your gonna want 3/8 and 1/2 for shrimp. If u can throw a big get a 8-10. If not 6ft min. Betts old salt is a good one for the money

go to the hardware store in darien on your way down to jekyll. They should have whatever you need. I usually order my nets.

also the big shrimp are gonna be out in the sound . You arent likely to catch much if you arent going to be in a boat.

Default Cast Netting EATER size Shkrimps!

Man, wish I lived closer to the coast. BPS Savannah may have them in stock (5/8" cast net that is). With all the rain that has been falling over there, when are the Larger Eating Shrimp expected to start showing up in the creeks?
