Mastering Cast Netting Techniques

Whether you’re new to the sport or an experienced angler, mastering the art of cast netting can significantly enhance your fishing experience. Here’s a step-by-step guide to perfecting your throw:

  1. Prepare Your Net: Inspect your cast net for any tangles or tears before you begin. Ensure the lead line is evenly distributed.
  2. Coil the Rope: Coil the hand-line neatly in your dominant hand to avoid snags during the throw.
  3. Gather the Net: With your free hand, gather one-third of the net, holding it loosely to allow for a full spread.
  4. The Throw: Swing the net outwards from your body, rotating your wrist at the last moment to spread the net in a circular motion.
  5. Let It Sink: After the net has settled, pull the hand-line gently to close the bottom of the net and secure your catch.
