I Have Imaginary Friends
Early (well for me) start tomorrow. Off to new grounds.
Just pick up a cheap one, don't get one too large as there is a fine art to throwing a net and getting maximum spread, the bigger the net the harder it is, there are several ways to throw a net, I would suggest you have a look at them on youtube (I'm sure there will be some there) and if you have a swimming pool you can do a lot of practise, I see many people casting nets but not a lot get maximum benefit of spread. You also need to consider depth where you are casting.View attachment 541750
Hi Guys , could anyone give me advise on buying a beginners cast net, want it to throw off a small boat, ive never used one before, but i guess would be targeting Prawns, nets seem to range in price up to hundreds, want to start at the lower end of the scale in case i can't throw it, or just don't use it, but understand sometimes too cheap, can often not work so could be a complete waste of money.
Legal up here and I think still legal in NSW, not sure about anywhere else, that is up to the user to confirm I suppose. there are restrictions though but I see them being used in the Maroochy River every day.Cast nets are illegal for use in WA from what i was told a while back, are they legal in other parts of OZ?
Tell more:Took the boat out today for the first time since last year. Our fly club had a day on the Bellinger & Kalang rivers. We've got a challenge going. with increasing levels of difficulty, starting with a bream, flathead & mullet over a year, working up to 3 offshore sportfish in one day. I was going for bream, flathead & mullet in one day. Got flathead & bream, but couldn't get the mullet. Normally mullet are the easy ones, but not today.
