Great catch! How do you haul that much out of the water? I once netted a bunch of anchovies and couldn't lift the net out of the water. So, I had to let a bunch out.
Good question! That was a net that got caught up on the bottom and was freed. When the person freed the net, it was fully loaded like that.

REDFISH TO THE RESCUE.........Thanks to a timely heads up from him I was able to get to the pier this evening and load up with his generous help......I am now going to be up vacuum sealing bait for the rest of the night, and sorting the best of the fresh stuff for eventual SMOKING.......Time to get a smoker I think.


Soooo............Filled My 5CF Freezer to capacity last night.......It had a lot in it already though.........Took what I packaged last night to my mother's huge Upright Freezer today.......It was basically empty.......and then returned home to package and fill my 5CF Freezer AGAIN.......I STILL HAVE HERRING LEFT TO PACKAGE........Luckily I keep my fridge colder than usual.........I will let what is in the 5CF freeze solid while at work and then package some more tonight to fill it the rest of the way and then I will make another run to my mom's freezer on Wednesday........I have Vacuum Sealed Herring, 3 1/2 gallon jars of wet brined natural herring, 1 jar each of brined herring in red, green, and blue, and herring packed in standard ziplock freezer bags for crab and cut baits........I also have several vacuum sealed bags or really BIG herring I plan to SMOKE.......it is no exaggeration whatsoever to say that a good number of these herring were in the 11" range......THAT IS TROUT SIZED........

And to give full credit where credit is due.......Thanks to the Happy Wanderer for teaching me how to throw a cast net.
