CAN I PURCHASE CAST NETS AT ANACONDA?
Yes you can. A cast net, also called a throw net, is an essential piece of fishing equipment for serious anglers. Our monofilament and nylon cast nets are perfectly balanced with small weights distributed around the edge of the net. Knowing how to throw a cast net is only part of the equation, and when your fishing experience is supported by top brands such as Terminal Tackle, Surecatch, Mustad and Jarvis Walker, you will be prepared for fishing net success anywhere in Australia. A cast net is an ideal fish trap, prawn or live bait trap that can be used in the shallows while wearing waders, or from a boat or Kayak.
ARE CAST NETS AVAILABLE IN DIFFERENT SIZES?
As always Anaconda has the solutions anglers are looking for, and you can choose from cast nets in a wide range of mesh sizes, with radius from 7 - 12 ft. Although cast nets or throw nets come in a wide variety of sizes, most recreational fishermen use cast nets measuring 8 to 10 feet for fishing. Cast nets are measured by how tall they are with all the leads touching the ground, which is actually the radius of the net when it opens up. A 3-foot net opens up to a diameter of 6 feet across, an 8-footer to 16 feet, etc. Soft plastic and monofilament cast nets are lightweight, easy to handle and won't become tangled.
WHAT ELSE SHOULD I KNOW ABOUT CAST NETS?
The cast net material and weights will determine how fast the net sinks once it is cast. Mesh size an important consideration to ensure the fish, prawns or live bait doesn't escape. The mesh size should also be large enough to ensure you don't pull up sea life that you are not after. A fishing net is a great alternative to angling when the tide or conditions are right, and a worthy addition to your collection of fishing rods, fishing reels, hand lines, crab pots, squid jigs and other fish traps. In a country surrounded by countless tidal waterways it's understandable that cast net fishing tools are popular, and it is worth exploring the unbeatable range of gear for anglers at Anaconda.
WHAT ELSE IS INCLUDED IN THE RANGE?
One particular cast net is the top pocket net. Prawning is a popular pastime for many anglers, and there is no better way to get a feed or grab some bait than with a top pocket net. The mono top pocket cast net by Wilson is a great option, featuring heavy duty 0.3mm monofilament construction to give the net durability and strength when it's needed. The top pocket is easily accessed through the top of the net and the top pocket design encourages prawns to flick up through the tunnel and into the top pocket, securing them safely. A Wilson scaler bag is another smart option used for towing behind a boat or kayak.
