Re: NFC: A seining we will go

Suggest using either the egg shaped sinkers that have a clip on device 
(Water Gremlin) or go to a regular sporting goods store and purchase 
some more weights that look like the ones on the bottom of the net (long 
with a hole through the middle.  I have additional weights about every 
6" to a foot - how many depends on how much current and/or how many 
weeds you have to deal with.  More weights = more tendency to stay on 
the bottom.  You will probably find, as I did, that the floats are 
insufficient as well.  I use large bobbers spaced from 6 inches to a 
foot apart as supplemental floats.  Can also use chunks of styrofoam.
