I let it sink all the way to the bottom (that how I usually get flounder in the net). My creek is only about 4-5 feet at high tide.Nice video. Curious how far you were letting the net sink? I normally let mine go to the bottom but have encountered some snags. We have a black lab and he likes seafood too. When I was cast netting one day and pulled up a blue crab, Coal proceded to eat it, shell, claws and all. It pains me to think about him passing it.
