35' Mamou x Model 36/12 in use by a single boat, in the backwaters of the Missouri River.
The Mamou Trawl is a surface trawl. It does NOT sink, nor do the Mullet Doors that spread it and hold it open. This gear is known for taking white bass,small mouth bass, carp,buffalo, crappie, perch, garfish , juvienile paddlefish and an assortment of forage fish. In recent years it has proven invaluable in determing If and WHERE Asian carp have spawned in the backwaters of the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers.
The Mamou can be worked from a small boat with limited hp and NO winch. . . if need be.
The beauty of this gear is that it can float right over most snags and rip -rap. It can go out into the channels and sample were fyke nets and seines can not. It can skim the first 1-3 meters of ANY body of water for surface dwelling or feeding fish.
Catch-of-the-Day . . . . . year 01 Asian Carp.
30' Scalene Mamou x Model 38/4 took over 9K of year 01 Asian Carp in a 10 minute tow over stumps, downed cottonwoods and heavy detritus.
This "specially" built model is designed to sample only 1.5 Meters deep.... making it ideal to tow over the most horrendous snags you can find on bottom.
Oooops ! The NOAA guys on the Penobscot River towed a bit too long . . . .
the 35' Mamou model 38/12 hit the Mother Load of forage fish.
Our Mamou trawl is one of the hottest sampling gears on the market today. The net can take Y.o.Y. fishes in almost every environ. No, its not perfect . . . nothing is. But it gets real close.
Shown here are pictures of the Mamou in operation. It goes out like an ordinary trawl, but it has some special features that we build into it to make it catch under harsh conditions.
Forget that fyke net and seine, this rig can take you where no other nets have gone before. . . . . sample that water column that you have not been able to touch for all these years....its that easy.
The Mamou comes in a variety of sizes and meshes and in a multitude of different depths. IF you are looking for a gear to sweep that top portion of the water column, then the I.N.S. Mamouis for you.
