Ok guys i bought a 8 foot 1/2 mesh for catching some gizzards back about june. I used it one time then and pulled the net out Saturday to try it again it was dark and i was paying more attention to the finder trying to get on the marks, i felt a few rips in the net thats never been hung caught only 1 or 2. After day break i looked at the deck of the boat it was parts of net everywhere, the thing is completely dry rotten. I kept it stored in the bucket it came with i had been using a old blue net for years without any problems. I am thinking should have spent another 20 bucks for a cracker. I sent them an email and the are going to replace it, has anyone run into this before?
