I have a cast net that I just can't get the hang of throwing. Any thoughts on adding that to a seminar?

Thanks,


Jerry

Check online and look for the shrimpers method, it's been working for me for the last 3 years. BTW I throw a 10' heavy sinker.

Looks like an easy method. But you will get soaked if you have to throw it a few times. Definitely a super easy way to throw it though.

Why not organize a get-together with folks who are comfortable throwing the net and those who are not?? You would then be able to try out what I would think would be several different methods and net sizes Smileupup

Hey guys ive been trying with that guy from california's method and I can't get the hang of actually throwing it to get completely open. I have his holding method down pat but im guessing that im not arching enough or something. Ive thrown mine on my backyard at least 2 dozen times today. Any suggestions?

If you are needing a small, cheap net, get one with a ring. A kid could throw those in 5 minutes. For the big nets, even the pros can't throw cheap nets. Gotta get the customs, made with the right materials, before you even attempt it.

First you need a good net. I use custom nets from West Coast (Cape Coral, FL). Calusa Nets are also good.

Second, dont use any of those stupid methods that involve your teeth unless you want to get that really fun bacterial infection. Seriously.

Third, use the triple-haul method.

Oh and BTW, knowing "how" to throw a net isn't the hard part. Its "when".

Keep at it the only way to learn is to keep throwing. Once you get good on land then it's time to throw on the water. A wet net is heavier and more difficult to throw. The when to throw is key don't get discurouaged when your standing there on your boat there's a ton of bait right in front of you and you throw the net and it half opens and all you get is the muddy bottom. Or you throw perfect and come up with nada.
Catching bait can be a lot of fun it takes time like everything else and locating them when you want them is another story. But don't give up . If you want to come out I can show you Smile
