Earlier this winter I was having trouble getting shad at about the same depth your looking for. I modified my net (an 8' footer) with two stripes of duct tape just above the lead line. Make sure to go around the entire net, then 6 inches above that do the same. This ensured that the net stayed open all the way down. The tape also made it a little easier to throw. The only time i had any trouble was in the heavy current.
