If you're an avid saltwater angler and can't throw a cast net, you don't know what you're missing! Catching fresh bait is a must for serious saltwater fishing. You're passing up some of the best baits you can find! And best of all, they're free.
When the mullet are running, it's easy to fill your bait bucket with finger mullet just the right size for those trophy reds and flounder, along with other fish species, by cast netting. Of course, you'll also have the chance to haul in some big mullet to use for sharks and other large fish. If you enjoy fried mullet or smoked mullet, you can catch plenty in even a small cast net.
Also, some cast netters overlook the fact that they can catch shrimp with their cast nets. The small ones can be used for bait, and the larger ones can be fried, boiled, or grilled. There's just nothing like eating really fresh shrimp right out of the ocean!
