i gotta agree...we had one, used it once, never again. That thing is more trouble than its worth, the doors beat your decks up, you don't have a winch to haul it aboard .......we drug that **** thing all over for maybe a dozen baits and hardly enough shrimp to make a shrimp cocktail lol

Last one I bought was from Robert Slaughter in Palacious Tx. I Believe he Taught at The High School and The Kids Made Them. Worked Great.We Used To Drag one around East Matagorda Bay In The 70s and 80s Before The Houston Crowd Showed up.As a Kid It Provided Great fun,You Never Knew what you;d drag up. Between The Blue Crabs and shrimp we always Ate good. I'd Call Palacious High School. The Money from The Nets went Back to The school,This was 10 yrs ago,but I bet He still can be found.If Not Tell The Principal what your after,they might still have the program going.

I bet Hillman's on Dickinson bayou can point you in the right direction.
I shrimped for about ten yrs. back in the late 70's and early 80's, and I've helped several people rig out sportsman nets through the yrs. I personally wouldn't mess with one today, because of the hassle. If your trying to use it to catch bait, your gonna lose a lot of time in the mourning dragging the net. You have to store it on your boat while your fishing and that means it's probobly gonna be in your way. Your gonna beat your boat up hauling it in and out, and you have to have a tub or something to "cull" your catch in. If your thinking that you can catch table shrimp with the little net, think about the price of gas these days. It's cheaper to buy the shrimp.
If you really want to mess with the net let me offer one more idea. Get a 12' or 14' "try net", because you can only use doors that are 15 x30 " or 450 sq. inches with a sport net, and they will not properly open a twenty foot net. The smaller net will "fish" better than a bigger net thats going through the water like a horseshoe. The small net wont take as much gas to pull either. good luck
