Cast Net Bag

Recommended Posts

I use a dry bag. Doesn't have a hard bottom but works great. Roll top buckle makes a good carry handle. Soft bag conforms to any compartment without scuffing any surfaces. Walmart has them in their camping department in various sizes. Heavy clear plastic. Less than ten bucks.

The bags compression bags as already said.... I post it on here some years back.  Im not aware of any waterproof bag with a hard bottom.  As to the smell... if you dont rinse and dry your nets like I do after use itll be pretty rank

I find that if I store my net hanging with the weights on the floor, it will be a lot more cooperative when I use it. Tim Wade recommended that and it works for me. That being said, the Walmart dry bag should do the trick for you.

I picked the bucket up at the Dania Beach Marine Flea Market. $10 or $15.  I have two, use one for the cast net which I store in the wer storage behind leaning post and I use one for trash that I sore in rod locker.

not sure of the brand or vendor but look up "Freegrace Buckets" on the web.  Looks almost identical with different color and size options.

When I fished in FL, I would end of walking beaches for mullet.  The bucket was great to put a couple of inches of water in to keep the bait.  Also, like the bucket when you throw from the boat.  I would dump my net in the bucket and toss the bait in a well while dumping the bottom stuff overboard instead of on my deck.

You( and the others that have been doing this) are a genius. I’ve started using dry bags instead of buckets and I’ll never go back. You can fit 3-4 nets in a pathfinder cast net locker instead of one or two. And I like how they don’t get exposed to salt with a water tight seal. I was skeptical, but now totally sold. The directions on my Tim Wades said to hang or store in a bucket, so after washing, I’ll hang to dry, then move to a cleaned and dry, dry bag. Thanks for the great suggestion
