effective (though I've been able to seine and dipnet them like crazy).

Sure I guess it could. But have you tried this? Wondering how
effective it would be. Still, for fish that huge the grass and weeds in
the shallows, nothing beats a dipnet. Instant gratification without the
worries of a thief or vandal ruining your efforts.
