Beginner with a cast net
I'm just trying to get an idea of the best size cast net to use. I'm 55 and 6' 235lb so I do have some strength but heard it's all in the technique. I keep hearing 6' or 8' so I was thinking of just going with a 7'. Will be using for catching shad, alewives, etc... in freshwater lakes. Don't want something so big that I just can't get it to spread right. Any recommendations on a good net for the money would be appreciated also, thanks.
