Best Cast Net For Baitfish In Shallow Water [VIDEO]
This question came up recently and is a great time to address it now that we’re fastly approaching spring.
Before looking at anything else, the most important thing to take into account is the size of the mesh in the net.
If the mesh size is too big, the baitfish get stuck in the mesh and create a huge headache for you.
The 3/8 inch is the most common mesh in casting nets, but for targeting those super small baitfish in the springtime, I recommend using a 1/4 inch mesh net.
The tough thing is not many tackle shops or stores carry the 1/4-inch net, however, it is basically what I use 90% of the time now.
Most importantly the smaller mesh saves you time and helps you catch the baitfish efficiently.
I recommend using the 1/4-inch mesh when fishing in less than 5 feet.
Anything beyond that and I bump up to bigger mesh for larger fish.
As far as the total length of the net, I prefer the 8-foot net.
It is effective and overall easy to use.
There are a lot of brands and different nets out there, but my current favorite is the 8-foot 1/4-inch mesh net from Black Pearl.
The weights on the Black Pearl net are covered with mesh that mutes the sound.
So if you drop the net or hit the boat, the fish won’t swim off.
Moreover, it decreases the odds of the net tangling and wrapping itself.
If you are in need of a new casting net, we just added Black Pearl Cast Nets to our store!!
