I like a 6 foot net with a 3/8 mesh for threadfin shad in this area. A net with larger mesh size drops faster and will sort of work, but I lose too many shad that get hung up in the mesh.
I got my nets at Wal Mart, they are pretty reasonable there.
I found a good videotape at http://www.calusa.com/howtothrow.cfm
that has been a great help.
Have fun - cast neting is like fishing - when you are in the right spot doing the right thing you can load the boat. Other times you are just out birdwatching.
