    Steve I have a net that has one pound weights per foot. I think they make nets that are 1 1/2 lbs. per foot. You probably could change your own weights to heavier ones. Never tried it. I think Memphis Net and Twine offers heavier ones.

    Keep in mind that the larger mesh'd nets will sink faster also, and that mono sinks faster than nylon.

    If your throwing into deep water, with a net with a heavy leadline, and the leadline sinking speed far exceeds the speed of the net itself sinking, your net will cone and not be open very fully by the time it hits bottom....
