whats the most popular size of net used by most cat men
One you can throw:big_smile:
Nate welcome to the BOC.
Really its what you can throw.
I have a 8' but if you have not throw one start with someting smaller.
Remember a 8 footer opens to 16' if thrown right. (Lot of net)
I have one that big for open water but throwing in small streams you will want something smaller.
Nate, I Agree With Tom If You Have Never Thrown One Then Goto Walmart And Get You A 3.5-4 footer Then After You Lose It Or It Gets Ripped Up Get A 5-6 Footer Then Go For The 8 Ft One. Most Times When I Am Throwning From The Back A Smaller Net Is Better As If You Lose It Oh Well Not That Much Anyways Now Most 8 Foot Nets If I Lose It I Am Going Swimming For It. IMO.
Hope This Helps And Welcome To The BOC.
I would start out with a 6 ft diameter/ 3 ft radius mono net.
Once you have mastered it bigger nets arent so bad.
It also depends on where you net bait at. If its a small river or creek I would opt for a smaller net because its less likely to snag(and that WILL happen) and the bait is more confined anyway.
If it is from a pond or a lake then a bigger net will yield more bait.
Best advice is to practice first at home and when you do go to throw for bait find the bait before you throw it. A bad throw or a throw in the wrong spot will scare and scatter them.
Also, get the nets with lead weights, that way when its ruined beyond repair you can make sinkers.LOL
I use a 5 foot net, easy enought to throw and does fine for me.
unless your mexican like me i can stand in 4 ft of water and throw a net ha ha
use what you can handle:wink:
i am mexican, you can tell by my skin tone :roll_eyes:
your just like me if i was inside out ha ha
I LIKE THE 5 FOOTERS, WALLY WORLD HAS THEM FOR ABOUT $25 RWG
Already been said bout big & small nets.....I use a 8ft and 4 ft both....sometimes you need the extra net but start out with a smaller one its easier to learn to throw! Definatley and once you develope yer technique its easier with a larger net but for me it was starting all over plus that larger net weighs more you dont want to chuck it alot:wink:
Just bought a real nice 5' net in the clearance isle at wally world. regular price was $32.00 bought it for $16.00. It has a throwing ring in the middle that makes it easier to throw....pretty cool design.
be carefull with it when i had 1 like it i always hit my nuckles on the ring
did they have any more
i went today and got the last one they had here in greatbend for $10.00 great deal
at present time i have a 3 foot dia.and a 5 foot dia.i use them both.i have seen the big shad so thick below dardenal dam that if you threw any thang bigger than a 3 foot you couldnt pick it up.i won the ego net that the boc gave away and im picking it up at picwick.its an 8 and 1/2 footer dont know if i got enough oommph to cast it but im sure gonna try.
They had 2 more at the Bonner Springs Wally when I bought mine last week.
Used it yesterday and it worked great. Don't know how you would skin a knuckle on it......
You do know that you are supposed to LET GO of it don't ya Gus?:wink:
i desereved that one
but really after you let go it hits you if your trying to launch it far
