Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 40 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by A very good net A "TRUE" nylon net but it has mono brail lines. Catches everything I put it over. I love a nylon net. Very difficult to find an affordable nylon net that works this well. October 5, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by An essential tool for big cats If you like to go after big blues or flathead cats you need to have a castnet. castnets not only save you alot of money but will help you catch the big cats. this is because they supply you with good fresh bait local to the area you are fishing. if you do not own a cast net catfishing bait can be very expensive and low quality. going to a bait shop and buying a dozen goldfish is sutch a waist. buy one, you will never turn back ,i promise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Way to Catch Minnows I own an umbrella net and a seline net but a umbrella net is the best and easiest way to catch minnows. I thought learning to throw it would be hard but learning it only took me about 10 throws. There are many good (and bad) videos on the internet to help. March 4, 2008
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Net This is a great net. This was my first net and once you learn to through it its amazing. I got remarkable comments on this net from my friend whose had 5 nets or so. I deffiantley recommend this net to anyone. June 16, 2007

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.

Yes these nets are great for finger mullet and the larger guys. We use it to catch the larger guys for cut bait. Works great.

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.
