I have been searching for a couple of long handle prawn nets, as I want to get back into prawning from my boat in Tuncurry and when I was young used a long handled net in Sussex Inlet.
All I have been able to find is the short handle type, that prompted me to look at the rules.
Think that the drop length of the net is the total length from the end of the handle to the bottom of the net.
Any help will be welcomed.
Maximum diameter of hoop or ring 0.6 metres.
Minimum mesh size 20mm measured across the diagonal.
Drop (length of net) no more than 1.25 metres.
Must be used by hand and not staked or set.
Must not be joined or placed with any other net.
Only one net per person at any time.
Other fish caught while fishing for prawns may be kept, however, bag and size limits
