What type and size nets do we all use around here?
8 or 9 ft radius, 5/8" mesh, 3/4 lb lead per radius ft.
I have a 6 foot radius cast net from bass pro.
I throw a 10 ft net...it works great when i can find the bait fish! They seem to be scattered right now!
hey tw im still a beginer, so i use a 3.5 radius. i think its the smallest one.
I got pretty good with that one because its easy to cast
I have a 6' that i got at wally world
Either a 6' with 3/8" mesh or 4' with 1/4" mesh depending on what I'm after.
I use a 5' radius with 3/8" mesh and 1 pound of lead per radius foot with a 26 foot throwline. The Fish Net Company down in Louisianna is who I go thru, theyre at
Just recently found out that the Illinois folks are limited to a maximum of a 4 radius.
I think mines a 7 or 8' radius. I sure prefer the mono net over the nylon however. The mono is a bit bulkier and heavier but it sure stands up to any snags much better than the nylon does.
Guy over at WS tried to tell me Sun that MO had a 5' restriction on cast nets so I e-mailed MDC. They told me that net size was self-limiting:smile2: I guess if you can throw it, it's legal in MO! I wonder what spidey throws? :spiderman:
Beleive it or not I use an umbrella net.Drop it from a small bridge,break off small peices of bread,and pull. Blugills,chubs,minnows you name it.2 or 3 drops enough bait for a couple of trips.:haha:
Nice! Philly, I've seen those but didn't know if they'd work or not. May have to invest, that 8' cast net gets hard on the shoulder after awhile. Thanks for the tip!
Bought it at K- mart a couple years ago,but I seen it in Cabelas & Bass Pro catalogs.
Ive got a 10 foot dia net.. It takes some pratice to throw.. im getting better :cool2:but as said below i keep having problems finding them bait fishoooh:?
Try an Umbrella net. Easy & convenient.:0a23:
i use a 5 foot 3/4 pound per sq. foot, not sure of the mesh size ill have to look at that, but i extened the line on my to 50 feet so i can throw it over a small bridge near marom without any problems.
Well it's summer time so 1 inch mesh 8ft net with 1 pound of lead per foot. Two new nets ordered and on the way. If i could find a net for under 100 with 1.5 pounds per foot and 8 foot with 1 inch mesh I might get one. I'll keep looking though.
Josh, I'll sell you my never-been-in-the-water 12 ft 5/8" mesh 1.5 lbs per foot net... Send me a PM if you want it.
I'm not man enough to throw it and found out I don't need that much weight except in the winter when they're down deep. 1/2 to 3/4 lb per ft is plenty when they're in less than 10 ft of water...
