Push Nets

Does anyone know the legality of push nets for shrimp in Texas? Has anyone used them/are they were the effort?

They do catch shrimp

We've used them in the Landcut, and this time of year they do work.
You can use the push net if you have a saltwater fishing license and catch them before 2:00 pm.

Is this the same thing as a "roller seine"? I wrote an e-mail to TP&W a while back & got no decent response. I described it and all but the guy that responded either a) was clueless or b) had never seen or heard what I was talking about.

What I'm talking about is minnow seine netting mounted on a square / rectangular frame. On the bottom is mounted a closet roller or large dowel. As the seine is pushed along, the roller spins and knocks down any grasses. All the bait jumps up into the oncoming net.

As a kid, I took a course at the museum of natural science. We took a field trip to SLP and the biologist used one. We caught loads of shrimp, crabs, piggys, mullet, etc... even a couple small flounder.


chicapesca,
Can you provide a link for your info?

Don't know of a link

The guys we stay with in the landcut keep it at their cabin. It is like the one you described.
I'm thinking of making one out of an old seine we have in the garage to use in POC.

The link I was asking about was re: TP&W regs.

No... the one I’ve seen was built out of 2”x2” stock. (now, this was going on 30 years ago) The frame was roughly 4’x4’ with another 1’ or so extended back. So there’s a square, an extension along one edge and a cross piece to join those two ends. On the opposite end there was a closet roller mounted on pins that allowed it to roll. On the frame was mounted minnow seine material but it was hung in such a manner as to bow in about 8”-12” when brought up horizontal. That way the flipping – flopping catch doesn’t jump right out.


It’s simplicity is it’s charm… besides, it works like a champ. I’d rather use one than a minnow seine any day. I could also see one made out of PVC. It would probably be easier on the hands too.

Seine:
(Includes a push net.) A section of non-metallic mesh webbing, with the top edge buoyed upwards

by a floatline and the bottom edge weighted.
• May be used to take
NONGAME fish and shrimp only.

• May not be longer than 20 feet.
• May not have mesh exceeding 1/2-inch square.
• Must be manually operated.
• In
SALT WATER, nongame fish may be taken by seine for bait purposes only.
And then there are the specific regulations for shrimp to consider which begin on page 44:

I used one as a kid. We worked up and down Laguna Shores on our way out to fish. Worked great. 10 minutes and we'd have 3 or 4 doezen shrimp, some mud minnows and sometimes who-knows-what in there. Seems like a good idea. let me see if I can find some plans for one.

What kind of netting do you use for one of these, they look like they would work.
