cast nets

9 posts in this topic

Has anyone use the wal-mart cast nets? They are about $26 and are 5 foot. I lost my bass pro nest last weekend on a tree 10 or 12 feet down and dont have time to order a new one. I know the cheap net dont work as good just wondering about the wal-mart nets.

Sorry to break this to you dude, but cast nets are illegal in MN, so I would not know grin

I see you are in Indiana Doug. Check your regs, but I believe you should be OK. I personally have not used the Walmart brand. Normally you get what you pay for, but if you need one quick, I would probably pick one up.

Good Luck

They work pretty good!

I'll assume Indiana allows the use of cast nets like most states!

Good Luck!

I've been using a small chunk of crawler on a tiny hook for catching bullheads and creek chub. Works well but takes too long and doesn't catch anything smaller than 4".

Let me know how that casting net works as I am curious.

Seine nets, minnow traps and dip nets for Shad when they are running.

And of course hook and line like posted above!

    • Lets try it like this.
    • Yah - great looking decoys! MJ - I'm just letting you know I'm breaking into your house and stealing your spear rack.  And mount. I found a rickety old 5 tine when I cleaned out the garage.  I might give it a try this season.
    • I can't identify any of those for sure, and certainly wouldn't recommend eating any of them.  The first pic might be some older honey mushrooms, but it's pretty tough to tell.  I've got about 8 mushrooms that I can positively id.  Beyond that, it's just not worth being wrong.  There are still some fresh hen of the woods mushrooms around the metro if you get out into some oak woods.  You can find them around the base of big mature oaks and they are pretty easy to identify.  Found about 20 on Wednesday.  Many were a little old, but was able to take 4 nice ones home.  Here's a pic of one that I left behind.
    • I'm putting it on my calendar.  Don't forget the Nord Lord trophy since it has a new home to go to. 
    • Detroit News breaks 143 year tradition, endorses Gary Johnson.   The endorsement is the first time in the paper’s 143-year history it has endorsed someone other than the Republican Party’s nominee. http://www.breitbart.com/news/detroit-news-breaks-tradition-endorses-libertarian-gary-johnson/  
    • Kind of like Trump did Monday night.
    • Gets on a bunch of talk shows. Jumps another 5 points in the polls.. This just ain't working the way it's supposed to...
    • Looks like it's unanimous then. Good thing my vote goes to Hillary since it seems everyone thinks she is the best person for the job.
    • In your situation I'd try to be standing around the time you expect the deer to show up since it sounds like your upper body will have branch cover but not lose drawing ability. I usually set up off to the side and a little behind the tree from the direction I expect the deer to come from.  That way I get the full benefit of the cover of the tree I'm in. I stand a lot though; I rarely sit.  My ears tell me quite a bit but I'm usually looking around that tree all the time and my body is close to it.  I seem to be able to get away with quite a bit of movement and am rarely at 15 feet or higher.
