Port Maitland Net
« on: August 13, 2020, 01:07:15 pm »
Launched out of Maitland this am. Was out around 60ft of water and both riggers snagged up on an unmarked gill net. Lost some gear, and reported the net to OPP and MNR. No marker buoys within site...lost of dead fish down deeper in parts of the net we couldn't lift. Be careful out there, it was running east and west. Snapped a quick Google earth photo, hopefully these coordinates are accurate.

Generally if their running east and west their Perch nets and are on bottom.
Those nets run a long ways maybe half a Kilometre those marker sticks are a Bambo pole with a small black flag on top.

We ran east and west after the tangle up, and found no markers. But thanks for the info, it seemed to be close to bottom so probably was a perch net.
