Must be a lot of work for Purafoy to pick all those shrimp out of his gill net.

Not sure what to think of this. I honestly am not a fan of gill nets in near coastal water, even if it is for selfish reasons. But at the same time, when we do winter livebait king mack fishing off hatteras - we set a gill net to get 100 or so menhaden to start the day, and I'm guessing that would be outlawed.

I still remember surf fishing about 20 years ago at Nags Head when I was catching some nice fish and then all of a sudden some guys drive up the beach and have a small johnboat in the back of a pickup truck. They stopped 100 yards north of me, take the boat off the truck, and then run a gillnet from the beach out to about 200 yards off the beach (perpendicular). After I saw what they did, that's about the closest I've ever come to assaulting somebody. Good thing because there were three of them and one of me. Probably wouldn't have gone well.

Bilzo we get that a lot in the fall at Atlantic Beach. You could. be surf fishing or pier fishing and here comes the betters and there goes the fishing until they remove the net.
