Anyone ever fish any sea bass or scup pots made from 2"x2" mesh?? I have a handle on some cheap 2x2 mesh and am thinking about building some sea bass pots with it. I have had good luck with sea bass pots made from 1.5x1.5. It would seem to me that the 2"x2" would catch just as well as the 1.5"x1.5" mesh. With either, the fish will not be escaping, except for the choggies and babies. But, before I make the purchase and putting the effort and money into it, I just want to try to get some input from other fishermen who may have some experience with the matter. Thanks , hope to hear from you guys.
