Should have spent the additional $20 I was in the market for a nylon cast net...and walking through the BPS in Grapevine presented several options. The decision was between this net (5' model) and the Old Salt in the same size. I'd read the reviews, so I thought I'd save the 20 bucks and go with the BPS model...looks like that was a mistake. After taking it out of the package and checking for any holes (there weren't any), I ran down to the lake to give it a practice throw or two. Net threw great. Brought it home and dried it out, didn't want to put it up wet. Today, prepping for a trip to the lake, I got out the net and gave it a once over...and found five or six holes. It looks like the net is coming apart at the "seams" so to speak. As this is my only net, I've done some rudimentary repairs to it...but it'll be going back to BPS as soon as I'm in the neighborhood. Maybe I got a bad one...but for as much as these nets are, invest a little extra and get a different make. June 9, 2012
Not a bad net I purchased this net after destroying my 6 ft 3/8" net on an oyster bar. I went with the 1/4 mesh size due to the size of the bait that i am after and i got tired of pulling them out of the 3/8 mesh. After getting it home and checking it out, i noticed some issues with the net. 1. The weights do not appear to be made out of plastic. I had to file a little nipple off of each weight because the net kept getting caught in them while trying to load the net. I believe these nipples were caused by the molding process during the manufacturing process. 2. Because of the tight mesh and the insufficient weight of the plastic, the net sinks very slowly and tends to miss a lot of the bait. If there is a current you can forget about filling the net. This net is better suited for the lake than saltwater. September 4, 2011
my best cast net i have several castnets and the 1/4 in mesh i got is the best i got yet. the 5 ft. radious 1/4 mesh has payed for its self 5 times over already (i got it last friday on the 19 of august 2011. i have sved so much money on bait it is like laughing at the bait shops. August 23, 2011

A: 
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.

A: 
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

The smaller the net the easier it is to throw. I would suggest the 4' net. Once you have the hang of throwing a net you can throw any of them.

A: 
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.

A: 
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.

A: 
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

A: 
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.

A: 
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

There is a creek with ton of minnows in it that I know. The water is usually to cold to get in. Would this net work? The creek is only about 0-2 feet deep. If this net doesn't work, what would?

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

A: 
it depends on how big the minnows are and if there are rocks in there. the nets will rip easy if caught on rocks. go to bass pro or who ever sells these and look at the holes in the nets.

A: 
Depends on the pilchards’ size. 1/4” mesh is recommended for 1"-3” baitfish, and 3/8” mesh is recommended for 3"-6” baitfish. Mono or nylon won’t make much difference either way.
