A Quick Beginners Guide to Cast Netting
A slow, careful approach is the best way to use a cast net. Once you’ve spotted a school of baitfish, it’s time to get that cast net out and start catching.
Remove your cast net out of its bucket and attach the loop at the end of the hand line to your left wrist. Then Loop the hand line into 2 foot or so coils over your left hand, like coiling a hose. Now, Grip the horn of the cast net (the very top with the round plastic piece) with your left hand.
Line up the top portion of the cast net with the coiled hand line and gather the remaining cast net at its midpoint with your right hand. Keep in mind, if you’re a lefty, you’ll want to do everything here with the opposite hand.
Now, you’re going to want to transfer the section of cast net from your right hand to your left palm, then place the lead line at the bottom of the hanging skirt between your teeth.
Grab ahold of the lead line dangling from your teeth. Bunch the net 2-3 feet below your left hand so half the weight is in your right hand and half in your left.
Once you’re ready, “spring load” your body around like you’re going to throw a discus. Then quickly uncoil your body back around, releasing the cast net while opening your hands quickly to allow it to unravel as its flying through the air.
After it hits the water, let it sink for a bit, then hand reel it back in…
Loaded full of bait!
