Cast nets for catching bait

Top tip for clean and dry cast netting

Tired of getting covered in crap and jellyfish tentacles while cast netting? I sure did about 25 years ago which is why I developed a new way!!!

Now I’m not going to boast that I am the only one to use this method, because I’m sure others must have stumbled upon it. But most people I watch are still using the old throw it over the shoulder method. Which is great for the first cast. But after that it gets kinda messy and sloppy, especially if you are in the mangrove mud.

The method I am about to show you is superb for throwing into the wind as you can get down low and flat and throw it hard.

Likewise you can get down under trees and low hanging branches. This is especially useful for throwing into gut ways and drains holding prawns as they are often surrounded by mangrove trees.

Watch the video below for a short demo and say goodbye to soaking wet sloppy bait collecting forever.

Now… I also have a little treat for you guys. We have a roll of Rovex KOR 30lb hi-viz braid to give away thanks to my great friends and supporters at Jarvis Walker brands. But nothing comes for free right? So what you have to do is guess how many mullet in the photo above and leave it in the comments below.

First correct guess will win the braid… and yes there could be some mullet hiding in the net pockets. I will add the video of us counting the mullet on to this post down the track. Good luck.

POSTSCRIPT  OK the race has been run and we have a winner. There are 15 mullet in the net and as promised here is the video proof:

    Wow what an overwhelming response. We thought we would have you guessing for days but one of the first to guess has won the braid. Congratulations Glen Gangemi – there were 15 mullet in the net and Ill post the video to prove it in just a second. Sorry to all those who also guessed 15 and didn’t get in quick enough. Guess we will have to hit up Rovex for a few more spools next time! Thank you to everyone that participated.
