How To Throw A Big Cast Net Without Using Your Mouth [VIDEO]

It’s cast net time!
The ability to throw a cast net is essential for anyone who plans to fish regularly.
Since we’ve received many questions relating to cast net throwing, we decided to create a video that not only teaches how to throw a cast net, but more importantly, this video shows exactly where the different sections of the net end up when casted properly so you can more easily fix any issues that you may have when out on the water.
For instance, if you’re having trouble opening the top, bottom, left, or right side of the net, this video will help you understand exactly where in your loading of the net the issue is occurring so you can make the needed adjustments going forward.
The goal of this video is to teach you how to properly load the net and to allow you to understand exactly where the various sections of the net end up when done properly so you can more easily fix any issues that you may be having with consistently opening the net is a full circle.
Please note that there are multiple different ways to throw a cast net, and this is just the one that I’ve used for the past 20+ years.
The reason I like it is that you don’t have to be strong to throw pancakes with a big cast net. For example, I was throwing a 12 footer when I was 15 years old weighing only 120 lbs.

Cast Net Throwing Tutorial Video
The ability to throw a big cast net is essential for those who want to be able to consistently catch good fish without having to rely on anyone else for success.
Best of all, anybody can do it when taught how to properly load and throw it… success is determined by technique, not power.
My best advice is to practice throwing your cast net at home, in a park, or somewhere on land so you can really get good before you go out under pressure.
Too many anglers think they can just wing it out on the water, but it’s entirely different while out on the water dealing with currents, wind, waves, other boats, etc.
It’s always best to have the casting part down pat which will make mother nature easier to deal with…
