Looking for education on nets in front of Au Gres. How do I know where I can get through safely and how I can tell where they start and end. I have not fished this far north before and have not encountered them before.

The 2 sets of nets I encountered just 3/4 South of Augres were well marked on each end with reflective flags, and orange reflective buoys in the middle. Night or day, you should be able to see them.

So is there always a flag at the ends? It was also explained to me about the anchor cable from the flags opposite the bouies.

I basically gave up fishing that area because of them a few years back. Back then I saw one that was marked with a vertical tree branch. Sounds like they are better marked now.
In no way I support them but I used them to my advantage. N caught alot of funneled walleye on outside edges. Once ya look at the big picture.

Not sure if you looked up how they're "supposed " to be marked but it's on the DNR link the was posted above. Here's a quick pic...they don't always have a flag at each end, lots of time just another bouy.

Thanks Ralph that anchor buoy behind the entrance is the most important to me. And it usually is the smallest n hardest to locate

Careful boys n girls,yes they are supposed to be mark as such in the previous posts,but that’s not always the case,there were a couple bad experiences last year on Erie out of Bolles,be careful out there,a lot of those netters don’t give a shat,it’s all about the COIN they bring in…

Whereabouts down there? There's no netting allowed in Michigan waters.

What else could they be? There's no betting allowed in Michigan waters of lake Erie by anyone.

Why do you say there is no commercial netting allowed in Michigan waters on Erie
