Made a new 4x3 seine.
Posted 26 June 2014 - 10:41 PM
After digging through the GA and FL regs, I realized I could use some "shade fabric" (though I think it's actually a filter fabric) I had to make a 4' seine.
I cut a roughly 4x3 piece out from a much larger piece my former brother in law had made as a tarp of sorts that I've had for 15+ years, Using the grommet side for the top, I hemmed the sides and put in a large enough bottom hem to allow me to put a chain for the bottom weight.
I'll try and get pics this weekend once I install the floats (probably use pool float foam), the polyproplylene rope for ties and the chain, plus the brails. I may use PVC brails with this vs. the shovel handles I use on my long seine, as it's small and light to start with. I could just use my kayak stake-out pole for one side, but it's rather heavy aluminum, and a lot longer than I need.
If I figure out the brand of the fabric, I'll post that too, but I haven't had any luck trying to use Google to find it.
Apologies for not having pictures to start with, but I'm open to any comments/thoughts.

Skidaway? Try Sapelo!
It would have been hard to show up for work at Sapelo, since I interned at the skidaway institute of oceanography for four weeks
I actually did a two day 'meter count' or whatever they called it there, trying to calculate the plan mass of a square meter of marsh grass.
