Cast Nets Recommendations

Post by dicko1980 » Fri Jan 20, 2017 5:45 pm

Hi Guys

Just moved up here and am struggling to find a 9ft drop cast net in 1" mesh size. Any recommendations in a quality cast net that is easy to throw but is not custom made. Specifically after a bottom pocket net for chasing baitfish.

Cheers


Regard

would do mate, but unfortunately Arafura don't make that size with lead, only envy weights. Got jacked with trying to find one so ordered another brand online from a guy who only sells cast nets.

Wanted to buy local but really struggled to find anything with 1" mesh around 9' drop and larger.

Cheers

One inch mesh is pretty big! And 10 foot drop is as large as you can go in the NT.

Already ordered last night mate after a few stubbies, got a 10' in 1" mesh with a chain bottom. Looking forward to seeing out it performs to the traditional lead bottom nets
