Default Lost hoop net at Dana Pt. 1/13/06

I put one on the inside and one at the tip of the big jetty and one on the outside.
When I checked the outside one it was gone.
There was at least 10ft extra line so I know it didn't get pulled under.
Either someone picked it up or ran over it.
The net is a 32"promar with built in bait net with 50ft of red rope and 50ft of yellow rope tied together with a clove hitch knot.
There is a normal lobster bouy with the extra line zip tied in a nice bundle and a jug (blue coral car wash) with a glow stick in it.
The float has my name (Rudy) and phone number on it.
If you picked it up by accident or found it I will be happy to get it back.

Thanks

Rudy

Hi Rudy if you were using the top float that comes with the hoopnet they are very small and it only takes a little current to pull it under.

The tide was also going up till 10pm that night so I think it would still be there unless someone else picked it up over the weekend.

Good luck on getting it back,Hopefully someone found it and will give it back.

How about posting a report on the hoopnetting board.

Thanks for the tip. I was actually using the top float and a waterproof jug with a glow stick in it. I had at least 10 ft of extra line. It is the same setup I always use so I'm sure it was taken by accident or on purpose or run over.

That area is known for jackasses that run over bouys also. We lost one last year do to a moron who ran right thru the commercial pots and 6 boats with nets out. They don't like to go around, so they run over the area.

Do you use a weight on the excess line to keep it underwater?
