Ok so another question and many thanks to those who helped with the last one.
Basically with the mono netting wanted to know if somone could help me understand the various sizes.
Like in relation to say 10lbs test mono fishing line how big are the various mono netting line sizes ?
Like is a No.6 (139) size mono net made of somthing that's basically six pound test fishing line ? Really wish they sold a sample chart or somthing of all the twine and mono sizes lol.
Anyhow any help would be appreciated

You may want to post this over on the Wilderness trapping and Living side also I'm sure someone maybe Yukon Jeff could help you out with your questions.

Wolfie:

These guys have always been very helpful over the years. Give them a call and ask your questions. We can't use mono gill netting. Has to be multifiliment.

Yea , sorry we cant use Mono here. If that's Memphis Net and Twine, try give them a call. They should be able to help you order. I ordered from them years ago.

If multi-twist (multiple strands of mono) will work for your application I would consider using it over mono. It is much more durable.

Isn't the breaking strength given in those charts? comparing to fishing line isn't completely comparable, the knots reduce the breaking strength of the twine itself, I'd call Memphis they should be able to tell you what the breaking strength is

picking a twine size is a balancing act ,it has to be strong enough for the targeted fish, yet not be too heavy for visibility. trashy water would need a heavier twine, smaller fish can use a lighter, smaller mesh size.

If you have a targeted fish, size, and area in mind, any net maker should be able to reccommend the appropriate mesh and twine.

Just call the Co. and talk with them, there are many factors when buying nets.

Well the only reason I haven't and made this post if because I think it would be a good thing to have this in print here for others.

Well it's not really the breaking strength im intrested in more or less the size . See I'm one of those type I kinda need somthing in my hands to gauge it or have it compared to somthing I'm around alot.
Like if you tell me a No.6 netting is made of 30mm dia mono I'm honestly pretty lost. But if you say it's basically 8lbs test mono fishing line then yeah it makes perfect sense to me . Like i can dig in my tackle box and dibd some 8lbs test and there it is.

We just kinda hoping somone could possibly break that down like that for me and other who might be curious

Wolfie. If you look at the link I posted you will see that each size of filament is given in MM. #6 mono is .40mm. So if you have some mono that you know the break test on, measure it with a micrometer to get an idea of the diameter of the filament. Extrapolate from there

Always set according to mesh size. Depth was expressed as the number of meshes bottom to top. Small mesh was typically 2 3/4 and large mesh was 6. Large was for flounder. Small was mostly for crab bait.

OP if you look in the netting section you will see the chart for mono size and breaking strength. There should be both a dry and wet breaking strength.
Ill go see if I can find a catalog and get a picture for you.

Wolfdog91 is that a Louisiana Fish Net Company or MemphisNetandTwine catalog? I have bought a lot from both and should have a catalog somewhere.
I went from using clear mono to using multi strand I got from Seattle Marine. You could order the mesh already cut to length and depth. Also you could get the mesh in many different colors.

What sizes are you considering for your target catch? PM me your address and I can mail you a sample before you buy. I have 104, 139, 177, 208, and #30. As a rule of thumb, the smaller diameter nets are softer, stickier, catch great but meshes pop easily. If the water is cold, these nets will catch better because the mono will tend to get stiff. I switched to multi strand for perch because I start when the water is still in the 50s. Larger diameter nets allow you to be harder on them, shake fish out without popping meshes. I like 208 for bunker for this reason (menhaden). Lots of fish, heavy nets, shake em out. Gotta find a net size that works for your target specie, water temp and method of fishing.

I'm just curious how often you guys strip your web and rehang your nets?
I usually get two seasons, that's about a maximum of 40 days fishing time, and about 80-100 pounds of salmon. The web is looking pretty beat up by then. My net is 300 feet long and 29 meshes deep, I like #73 multi strand.
