After casting the six foot net over the bait balls by the poles we let it settle and slowly bring it back towards the boat and lift it up.
We released the net over a large plastic tub. The tub makes it easier to see the catch and to pick up what we won't keep.
We used tongs to catch and release the flounder and the little crabs we netted.
The water was not as salty as usual, probably from recent rains, so that may be why the shrimp were a little scarce.
