Anyone seen a commercially built net for catching FF? Or suggestions on making one? I haven't given it much thought and guess I could make one if I gave it 2 minutes of attention. Being lazy I suppose.-T
I knew of a fella back in the 80's that would stand on the pulpit of his Rybovich and catch flying fish. Well I guess I should say he would stun them for his deckhands to catch in nets. He shot 1/4 oz. loads from his 28-guage, knocking the fish down and most of the time they would float with the wings extended.
Wing shooting and tuna fishing all in one, what more could you ask for?
Thanks, Academy at lunch had a fine mesh net, black handle that I could modify to fit my needs. Speaking of shooting, we've lately been taking a mechanical pigeon thrower that I modified with a gimble base to fit in a rodholder. That, a beater 20 guage and a case of pigeons makes those long runs that much more fun. Don't worry, we don't do it around rigs, or commercial boats. Pull!-T
Kinja, Have you tried Bow Fishing yet. It seems to be the better way of doing it. Grab you a recurve, Fishing arrow, and a Zebco 888. It will take a little practice but once you have mastered the technique of leading the Flying Fish and the follow thru you can start providing bait for the rest of us. Bow season starts this Weekend. Good Luck!
