Default Cast net success?

Wondering if anyone in the upper hudson uses a cast net with regular success?
My girlfriend just moved up from Florida and she has a 7 super spreader, and is pretty handy with it. The sabikis have served me well in the past, Im just wondering if it would be worth it to bring and give a try this year...

Cast nets work great in the local streams you can catch your bait really fast when there in. Also if you have a good fish finder that you can see the bait balls on is also pretty effective in the shallows.

I'm a big fan of my 4' cast net. Hang a stoolie of the side of your boat, wait a few mins and cast away. This is especially helpful if you are by yourself and cant reel in a stoolie and raise a scap net at the same time. I also like to use casting nets off the shore in areas with rocky bottoms.
I think a 7' casting net might need a special license in NY but check on that.

Glad to hear that... Yea I was curious about needing a special license so i checked it out on the nysdec site and found this...

In addition to angling, any person who has a fishing license or is entitled to fish without a license may collect* minnows (except carp and goldfish), killifish, mudminnows, darters, sticklebacks, stonecats, smelt, alewives, suckers and blueback herring for personal use (sale prohibited) as follows:Cast net: maximum 10 feet in diameter

You can't use bigger than 10' diameter (5' radius) so make sure your 7' isn't a 14' when it opens.... if so you need a permit or something.

I get my bait early season with a net and I have always thought about throwing one in the river but once they start hitting the rigs they are so easy to catch i just don't bother.
