Bass Pro Shops® easy-to-use Bait Cast Nets are fully heat treated to keep mesh square. This unique process ensures ease of opening and a complete circular spread of the net on every cast. Outfitted with 1 lb. of lead weight per foot to make certain the nets sink fast before bait can get away. Imported.
Good bait provider
I like the 1/4 inch mesh, mainly because ghost minnows pass through the 3/8 inch net. This net sinks quickly and has provided a lot of bait, resulting in recent limits of catfish up to 30 pounds

so far so good
Like the 1/4" mesh, to catch even small bait & not gill others. Bought the 4' after having a bett's 6' & couldn't throw it, got aggravated, & sold it. This throws easily w/my lack of experience & skill. Wish it came in mono instead of nylon. Nylon seems closest to sewing thread that I can compare it to, seems like it would tear easier on oysters. Not certain yet, but seemed to sink a little slowly. Caught what I threw it at though, so far so good.

this net is the perfect size and is made very well. the first day we tried it we caught over 150 butters in about 10 cast. one cast had over 60 butters in it.
this net is amazing. buy one

Great net, good value
Once someone showed me how to use it (which takes practice!), this net is great. I have the 4' with the 1/4" mesh and have used it a dozen times already at the NC coast, over oyster bars and grass beds, have hauled in piles of shrimp, mullet, pinfish and more. No holes so far (though sooner or later that will happen on the oyster beds so I'm prepared to mend it), cleans up easily and from what I hear you can't beat the price. Does everything I expected it to, highly recommended.

I have read some of the questions and replys....and they stuff does not apply to me so much..I do want to catch herring and smaller than 6 inch,so i assume that 1/4 inch mesh would be best and the 5 ft size...and made out of what,there is 2 different materiels that the make them out off and which is best is not to easy to determe if no one has experience with herring thank you
As long as the bait is bigger than 3 inches you can catch it. I have caught glass minnows about 2 inches long in this net but they will come through if smaller than about 3 inches. The length of the net does not matter as long as you can throw it.
It is best to use the largest net that you can throw or afford. with smaller neets, you will have a lot of the lrger bait that will swim faster than the net sinks and will escape before that you can net them. I personally use 3/8 " mesh net to catch shad and alewives, with most beibng smaller than 6", but can also catch larger gizzard shad. 3/8" mesh will sink faster than 1/4" mesh
There's a learning curve with cast nets...no doubt about it. I started with a 3.5' net, practiced, and moved up from there. Once you jump up to 6' and larger, the throwing method changes. Depending on what you're trying to catch...you may want to start big (6'+) and get bigger as you get better. I spend most of my time in fresh water...just don't need a 10' net.
If you have never thrown a net, it would be best to learn with a 4 footer. I use a 4 and a half foot net, which gets me all the shad, small perch, and ghost minnows I want. Note: ghost minnows require a 1/4 inch mesh, rather than the standard 3/8 inch mesh.
In most states, you would violate the law if you use a cast net to get bass or bream. If you do net bass or bream, it would be best to return them to the water immediately. In answer to your question, these nets will catch bass or bream, although they are designed to catch baitfish. I use them to get shad and ghost minnows
Small bream may be possible, but bass would be pushing the envelope. Also, if using in public waters, be sure to check with your Conservation agent to check on legality of use of throw nets as well as other devices for fishing for game species.
Yes. Most of them will by caught by the gills. The really large ones will be too large to have their heads slip through the mesh. When caught by the gills, it is best to pull them through the mesh. It will take quite awhile to clear your net if you get a large mess of minnows
it would work to a degree. if the baitfish arent big enough they will slip through the holes in the net. i honestly think that you would be better off using a little butterfly net or something like that
