Greenie cast net selection

Looking to buy a cast net for smaller greenies, will be thrown from piers mostly like the skyway. Pretty sure ill want 3/8 mesh but not sure on what weight and size. 1.6? 10ft?

    If bait are 3 inches and less you will gill a lot on each cast. I had to go to my 1/4 net last few weeks. I usually bait up on the flats in 4 feet or less. Hard to have a one size fits all circumstances. You r choice is a good choice, just be prepared to pick fish out of the net on occasion.
