Cast Nets I've been researching flathead sites and am getting all excited about giving fishing for them a try. I like all kinds of fishing and have been doing a lot of (unsuccessful) fly-fishing this spring. I know flatheads prefer live-bait, especially bluegills, but fresh shad seems tops for catfish in general. I live in Columbus, which I realize is not the "flathead capital" of the state, but I hear some can be caught here. Anyway, I've been considering buying a cast-net and have looked at all the sites regarding how to cast them. I'm an older, recently-retired guy so I'm able to indulge my whimsies a little. Here locally, the shad-netters talk about boat ramps, etc. Our local rivers are rocky. Do they stick to ramps to avoid snagging their nets? It doesn't seem like the ideal place to catch bait. Also, is it possible to effectively catch quantities of bluegills with a cast-net? Also, is it legal?
