Cast Nets for Baitfish?

Recommended Posts


Hello All,


I've been looking into the use of cast nets here in Texas and am wondering about the Philippines now.

I can use them legally in Texas for baitfish such as mullet in salt water. Rules are strict and the game wardens are on patrol. I have bought a small cast net and am struggling with learning how to throw it. Should be a good tool once I get the hang of it.


Are there laws concerning small 6 foot or 12 foot cast nets in the Philippines?


Not sure where this guy is, maybe florida or texas but damn he makes it look easy.

Do not know the laws in the phils but, cast nets are our bread and butter fishing tools back home in oz when getting bait for fishing. Well that and yabby pumps.

There is a learning curve to them but keep at it and you will get there.

They are gold once you have the right style.

White bait are yummy too btw
