Re: How to measure a shrimp trawl

Measure along top rope from where webbing begins to where it ends on other side. I always use a tickle chain. For tickle chain length, connect bottom ropes to boards, (leave top ropes unhooked so bottom will stretch out straight) and stretch out tight. Measure bottom rope board to board and make tickle chain 18 inches shorter. To measure webbing: Stretch webbing diagonally and measure knots on one web.( inside of one to outside of other) Usually 1 1/4 , 1 3/8 , or 1 1/2.
