  Cast Net

Zoom in on
A cast or throw net is a circular, fine-mesh net that is thrown out upon the water to catch minnows for bait. The thrower needs strength to throw the net out to land flat on the water. The weights on the perimeter of the net sink as the line connected to the center of the circular net is lifted. Go to video of minnow net
