Find a friend, or if you are in the area of a store that specializes in selling nets, they will have someone that can teach you . If in the Tarpon Springs of Tampa Area, come to Tarpon Fishing Outfitters or Tampa Fishing Outfitters for a 1/2 hour lesson that will have you catching bait in no time
Thatís great I was thinking the same thing but I do my fishing in south jersey.

Sounds like you just need to practice more on the timing of your release. The longer you can make the bottom section of your net when you make it up makes for easier opening as it's the centrifugal force of the lead line that opens the net. I have to make up my net shorter when throwing over a high railing. I'm also very old school, having been throwing nets for about sixty years and still put the lead line in my mouth. I've gotten used to the taste of polluted water and the flesh eating bacteria actually seem to clean up my cavities.

Other than me thinking that Darcy is uber hot... She is a great teacher. I'd watch her video and pay attention to the details! She really takes the time and accurately explains the technique. I can throw a small net really well. After failing on a larger net (bait was still caught) once, I found her video. One throw in the yard and the results were 1000% better!

the technique changes from a 4' net (radius) up. I've never tried a 10' radius net (20' circle)

Thanks, glad the vid helped. I'd say the vid above is for nets to 8'...10 and over you probably need a triple load method, vid on that coming out when I get to it.

Just imagine Capts. Scott Walker and Steve Rodger were able to make perfect throws with their clothes on. I guess they don't crave as much attention as the bikini clad throwers.

The irony being that methods that utilize the throwers shoulders will soak the thrower and his/her shirts after a few throws. Which wouldn't matter if you're in a bikini. And the bikini' throwers method doesn't require laying any of the net on the shoulder.

If you search Capt. Jimmy Lewis on youtube,he has a 3 part series on how to throw. The 3rd part is live action catching pilchards,kind of a how to.

I'd like to see someone throw pancakes with a 12' net without using their shoulders.

I believe Darcizzle said her technique in the video was for 8' max nets, and that the triple load would be needed for larger nets. And what's wrong with enjoying the video while learning. She is also good about offering advise on threads on this board.

It's the wet shorts for me because of how I load. Synthetic shirts dry in minutes and have since made some shorts out of some Grudens to put on while catching bait.When real cold also water proof jacket.

To each his own but I find it insulting. Put a fishing shirt and pair of shorts on and act like a professional if that's what you are.

Waaa waaa, I can hear you crying from here. We'll wear what we want when we want. How come none of you big talkers ever say anything to me in person?
Only real issue here is I'm getting attention, and you, are not. Another tip, putting on a fishing shirt and shorts does NOT make you a professional, ignorance or sexism taught you that I guess, you being a prime example. One thing professionals don't do is cry, whine, and minimize others on the internet hiding behind their keyboard.
Looking forward to that chat TarponCharter.

OOOH, he got told!

BTW, any shirt with buttons on it will give you some serious problems throwing a castnet and might get you thrown off the bow.
