Tried to get some bait this evening. First throw: 1/2 lb bass. Second throw: immovable object/net eater.
Might as well have thrown 3 20's into the river and headed home.
I hate fishing.

I feel your pain ! I average a cast net per season , also became somewhat of an expert repairing them .

I just got my first large cast net in the mail the other day. I read the instructions and practiced throwing it in the yard. It is a 8'radius mullet net with 1 inch mesh manufactured by Betts. I soaked it for about 12 hours in water and laundry detergent. It is very soft now. I did a weak toss in the living room last night and it opened up good for such a plop of a throw. I might go try to find some baitfish on the Garmin 240 and attempt to catch them this weekend. I have never tried it so it should be a learning experience. I have seen schools of baitfish numerous times while looking for cats. I remember some of those locations so I will check there first when I do go. One area was so loaded the screen was black. Any tips would be appreciated. - Kepone

when i got mine i bought a thrower it works good for me...but what works better is I told my oldest son 16 that I would not take him anymore until he could learn to throw it(without the thrower)now I have my own personal bait catcher, works good too LOL. He also got one of those imoveable obj. last yr. now he can sew.[grin][grin][grin]
