How to throw a 4 foot cast net

    It’s time to cast nets!

    Best of all, we’re going to focus on an easy way to cast a 4-foot cast that even a 4-year-old can do (and you’ll get to see my brother Joe’s 4-year-old daughter, shauna, cast a standing 4 feet with ease in the video).

    and this method doesn’t require the net to go into the mouth, which is a huge plus for anyone who doesn’t like getting mud and salt in their mouth…and a huge plus for those with braces.

    casting net is a topic near and dear to me because casting the net was one of my favorite activities as a child.

    I can still remember the Christmas my parents bought me and Joe our first cast nets. The two of us spent weeks tossing those 4 foot cast nets anywhere we could… pools, patios, ponds, lakes, etc.

    but of course, the best thing was to throw the net from a dock or jetty…

    I loved the fact that I never knew what I would catch on the next cast (in fact, I caught my first bass on my beloved first little 4 foot cast net).

    And since there is no better way to get immediate catch results than with a net, I encourage parents to teach their children to cast a cast net at an early age. It can certainly be a lot of fun for them, while also allowing them to learn about lots of unique species of small fish, seahorses, starfish, etc. who otherwise would not have been witnesses if they used a rod and reel.

    and an added bonus for parents (or my brother joe, who has benefited greatly from my net fishing skills) is that it could become free bait for life, assuming they get so addicted to throwing the network as I did 🙂

    Here’s me throwing my cast net as a young kid while my brother Joe watches and makes funny jokes to see if he can mess me up

    So the purpose of this post is to show an easy way for kids to throw a basic 4 ft cast net without having to put it in their mouths.

    and this technique will allow your child to stand out from the others who have to put the net in their mouth and do the helicopter-style toss to get the nets to open.

    note: you don’t need to put a cast net in the mouth, and you don’t need to do a helicopter turn to properly throw a cast net.

    many even refer to it as the “ninja throw method” as it requires minimal twisting and all but one strand of the web is held in one hand.

    Finally, an added bonus is that this method is the driest way to cast a cast net, as the net is not wrapped over a shoulder or held in the mouth.

    let’s dig deeper.

    Tips for throwing cast nets for children

    how to throw a 4 ft cast net

    Many people incorrectly think that casting a net is about strength… but the reality is that it’s about technique.

    because without proper technique of loading and throwing the net, there is no amount of muscle to make it open.

    In fact, using too many muscles when throwing a net can often do more harm than good. and this is true with small nets, like the 4 foot net below, or even larger nets, like the 10 foot net I used for a different video tutorial on networks.

    (you can see the more detailed video of the 10ft throwing net here)

    The most important thing to do when casting a cast net is to load the net correctly.

    here’s a video showing a great way to carry and cast a 4 foot net that even a 4 year old can do:

    steps to launch a 4 foot cast net

    These are the basic steps required for this “ninja throw” technique:

    1. remove tangles from net (check front line for tangles)
    2. split net into two sections
      • front section should be slightly less net than the back section
        • both hands must move in the same speed directions
        • It’s often better to hold the line with your lead hand for a second longer because that controls the section closest to you)

        note: this style of casting a cast net becomes more difficult as the size of the net increases… click here for an excellent tutorial on how to cast a cast net over 10 feet without using your mouth.


        As you can see in the video above, casting a cast net is something anglers of all sizes can participate in.

        And it’s a great way to help kids see and feel all sorts of interesting animals they probably wouldn’t be exposed to otherwise, like starfish, seahorses, and even small squid.

        Best of all, it’s one of the best ways to ensure at least one thing is caught in no time, so it can be a really fun experience for young children to watch and/or participate in.

        and note that there are other ways to cast a 4ft cast net, however this technique has been the easiest I have found.
