let's find you a cast net!

CHOOSE A MESH SIZE

measured in square mesh

Use big mesh cast nets to target large bait fish like mullets and smaller ones for tiny bits like minnows. You can always use smaller mesh nets to catch bigger bait fish but that's not practical because the smaller mesh creates more resistance in water therefore the net will sink slower and thus allowing bigger bait fish to get away.

In Florida a good bait net to get is a 1/4" minnow net for standard bait fish like greenbacks and sardines but you will not gill them when you encounter smaller sized baits which are abundant.
