Default Cast Nets

Lost my old cast net and my favorite one was stolen. I wanted to know who makes the best cast nets and the cheapest. I dont want to get a net bigger than 6 or 7 feet. And I wanted some advice as far as using my pinfish trap. Havent caught a thing in it.

There is a guy on here that sells a pinfish trap that is magical. I bought one after having your same luck. Put a stocking full of squid in the trap and within 4 hours the thing was slam full. Think is name is Robert. Do a forum search for Pin Fish traps. As far as nets go, get on Flea Bay and do a search. I have found that they have pretty good prices for the manufactured types. Hand made nets are going to run you an arm and a leg. Butt you pay for quality. Hope this helps.

You said a 6 or 7 ft net so I am assuming you mean a bait net..They are not as cheap and easy to make as mullet nets..So it would be in your best interest to buy one at the local tackle shop..The guys that make the best nets like Johnson or the guys at GBBT that custom make arnt going to be cheapest..They have some great nets already made at GBBT that would fit any budget and size you need

I'm a newbie too and I bought a cheap 6" net that works but I'll splurge on my next net. 1lb at least per foot and 1/4in mesh for sure. After you spend a half hour digging out ly's through the mesh the extra $40 is worth it.

I may try for a minute to get them out but usually just pinch the head off and be done with it.
