    The idea is to convince yourself that opening the net all the way will catch way more bait than you could possibly use lol. Its all in how you look at it....net is half open or is that half all the way open 🤣

    I just lay the net over my arm instead of over my shoulder.
    Key advantages:
    The net weight is distributed over both arms evenly. You won't tire one arm if you are making a ton of casts.
    You do not need to coil the line, which is huge if you are going really deep
    You can tie the pull line off to the boat or dock. This is a safety feature in waters where you could net large fish or get snagged in current where you could get pulled overboard.
    It's so easy to load very quickly.
    You can throw this waist high which means you can throw over the rail of a boat easily.
    thanks Duayne, I have a 10' net, I have never been able to get it to fully open, but it opens enough to catch bait, I'll give it a try the next time I'm on the water, but looks like I'll have to wear my rain coat, but not a problem if it will get my net to open fully, looks like an easy way to get it done, thanks again for sharing the info.

    You are welcome. I usually only "throw" in the late summer so getting wet is actually more desirable then. I have to say, though, I really don't get as wet as I thought I would. The net lays over my forearm and I keep my hands down until I am ready to throw. Still, any wet is too much when the temp is close to or below freezing.. LOL
