    I have to contribute part of this post to Dobie over in Miami Ok because he made me look like an amature throwing a net. I'm getting better though. And there is a knack to throwing a Net---It's called practice. I hope you can read the printing on the pictures. Kast Net Practice 004.jpg

    Thanks Carl, i definitly need to practice more myself. I can throw one perfectly some throws, other times it don't open like it should. I pick up nets at yard sales cheap and can afford to tear one up now an then.

    John, If you can throw a net perfect 75% of the time throwing it good the other 25% is good enough.

    Honestly my biggest prob. is hanging it up on the trolling motor or depth finder. Hopefully i've found a different boat more suited for catfishing. Or will be when i'm done with it anyway.

    Heck I found a way to toss a cast net that don't get me wet when it comes in and I never get tired. Showed the young son (aka chief bait handler) how to throw it. I put the chief bait handler up front and let him toss away.

    we use the 4ft. wal mart net also, they are good for catching bait in tight places. we use an eight ft. in the lake , have you got any pictures trowing an eight ft. net?

    Having the rope around your neck may be good for throwing off of your back porch, but in a river with current or a lake with good size fish in it could be hazardous to your health. I know every one has a different way of doing things, but I would never ever put any kind of rope around my neck! :crazy:

    I agree if your fishing the Ohio River like myself! But I figured if he's fishing a lake probably not a big deal most of the time.

    i agree that is a good way to get your rope outta the way, but i do not think that the risk is worth the gain from it.
    U seem to be big on "practice, practice, practice" so go ahead and loop that line in your right hand with it tied around your wrist. it might take some getting use to but it can be done.
    I use a 7' net and throw it kind of like u were throwing that one.
    If u have any questions look up "cast net" on you tube and u can see several diff methods of throwing. The one i use is kind of like throwing a frisbie with right hand. For left hand side of boat, i use more of a small net approach and keep the net open, barely spit it and give it some toss

    Your right James. I'm big on practice. Most guys want to throw a net but aren't willing to spend the time to learn how. And, most start with way to big a net for them to handle. I learned to cast a bait reel the same way! Practice with both either hands and pretty soon it comes natural. I knew I'd get a lot of flack from the rope around the neck thing but so what. I can hold the
    rope any way now that I've got the cast down. if when throwing, the rope catches on the net in any way it ruins the throw. Also, I've trimmed all the little string nubs of to the drop lines and super glued the ends. I shake out the net real good after I get ahold of the net, Any snag that catches in the net before the throw ruins the throw (when Learning), after I started getting it down not much bothers my throw. For you guys that don't like the neck thing...OK. For the question about the pictures of the 10/12 foot net. No I don't have--I don't throw that big a net. Usually I don't need more than a dozen shad at a time so if I have to throw 12 times I got enough bait. Guys I respect all your comments and objections-Thanks and Practice!!!

    i'm with ya on that, i need more practice also, sometimes it opens like a pro and other times its all hung up, i loop the rope around my left wrist and throw with my right, most of my problem is i get in a hurry and don't take my time, i throw from a dock and the rope gets hung up on the dock or i stand on it:confused2: but practice is key
