Betts 3 Foot Compact Cast Net – Item of the Day — 4 Comments

  1. This is great. In the surf I want to throw the biggest net I can but, I never dared risk my big net in a small creek. Thanks for the post.

  2. I have used this very net in 4 states ( Tennessee, West Virginia, Texas and Louisiana). It is perfect for dropping down concrete retaining walls that shad love to school against. I have had several people scoff at the size of this net but change their tune when I could stay against the wall when a 5 foot or larger radius required throwing away from the wall to let it open up. Using this net and that technique, I have filled a 5 gallon bucket with shad in 5-10 throws.

  3. I have never tried a cast net, but I usually have success catching bait fish in salt water with a sabiki rig.
