Wear clothes you don't mind getting wet or dirty, and probably bring dry
clothes this time of year. If you don't have waders (or a wetsuit...) I have
an extra set. As to nets, a fine-mesh boat-landing net with a 3-4 foot
handle is a start. Better nets can cost a fair amount more money and you
should choose them based on your own experience. I have a seine net and a
so-called kick net, and I'm sure Steven and Stott have nets too. So don't
worry about that end... In Alabama, a fishing license is adequate for
collecting "bait fish". If you wanted to keep any, a cooler is a reasonable
collecting box to get them home in. And as to length, I'm sure we'll be
there for most of the afternoon if the weather is reasonable (no ice,
driving rain, etc.).
