I've looked everyplace online I could find and have spoken to several people. I'm confused about the cast net regulations. Do you need a permit for a cast net? What fish are you limited to to catch in one? I see people in the local parks casting a little net I'm not sure what they are catching but I imagine little sunfish, perch ect. Is that legal? I guess I would like to do the same thing for bait but I don't want to break any laws. I actually think I see laws broken all the time but I'm not about to start. I see alot of crazy stuff. This weekend....people fishing hand throwing lines working their way around a little local pond. They can throw a fishing line by hand almost as far as I can cast. I'm sure they didn't have a fishing permit. O well.
