    Default Best net: black, white, green?

    What color net do you use and what color is the best for catching shrimp? So far I think white is better than black or green. But not sure. Do you see a big difference in the color you use?

    White is the best, especially to catch baby or juvenile. Black net looks good but you can't see your shrimp properly, especially those shrimps that are dark color.

    However, white net tends to turn yellowish after some time. To prevent the yellowing, you can clean it with H2O2.

    agreed. i've tried many and its strange how they just ignore the white nets. you literally have to push them out of the way.

    I have to agree too, white is definitely better for catching them & seeing the shrimplets. It is very weird how they don't seem to see the nets that are white.

    My shrimp swim toward the white net. But are very scared of the black one. Have not tried green as white works so well.
