Sounds like you were fishing the Hudson, as the use of a scap net and stoolie is popular there. Don't expect it to work as well from shore in the MA salt, which is primarily what the previous 2 posters are talking about.

You'll be more productive in MA waters using a sabiki for herring & macs, or a snag hook when there are bunker around.
