Default Recreational Shrimp Trawl Net

Is there anywhere to purchase a recreational Shrimp Trawl in the Wilmington or Shallotte area. What size net is best to be pulled by a 26' CC.

Thanks

mike kellars in manteo sells and ships them. Also memphis net and twine has them. The size depends on were you pull it. It you drag it in large enough rivers and creeks I would get a 20' net. I would also check the regs in your area. For instance around manteo you can only pull the net during the week. No trawling on weekends. And you can only trawl certain parts on the sound.

Anyone used Shrimp traps in NC or SC? Got a friend on the West Coast that's had lots of luck with them.
