i need a mesh count on this type of head for a 24w x 15H opening.
guess nobody knows what i'm talking about ??
I have no clue ......
I assume something to do with the funnels?
yes all i'm asking is for the number of meshes across the bottom up one side and meshes deep. I can figure out where to make the cut for the opening.
31 x 6 that's 14 across the bottom, 6 up the sides, 6 meshes long
Are you knitting them, or cutting them from shrimp mesh ?
Those are knit heads with a smaller mesh, but most lobstermen I know use shrimp mesh. Mesh size makes a big difference so it usually takes some experimenting.
I'm going to cut them out of shrimp mesh.
It also depends on the trap height and width.
He said they were 24" x 15".
all i want to do is try to stick a couple of hake mouth heads in one of these traps i build. I thought if i got a simple mesh count i could save wasting some web figuring out myself.
