Hi, I'm Mark the Shark, with On this clip I'm going to show you how to cast a fishing nest. Here we have our normal, every-size ten-foot-spread net, this is a one-inch mesh, this is used for catching bait. As you can see it's made up of all mono, all nylon, this is a ten-foot diameter net, okay? What you want to do is grab your main line, put it on your wrist--I'm right handed so I'll put this on my left hand--and we'll get the excess line here, just wrap it around here, there we go. One, two, three, four, five, six and we grab the crown of the net right here. Kay, grab it right there, and we'll come down, grab it right there. Make sure we don't have any tangles in the net. When we throw the net we want to make sure it's tangle free, come all the way down here, there we go, come all the way down, about halfway down grab the net. Put your left hand, grab the whole bunch with your left hand, grab the bottom lead part, right here, okay? What I do is grab one of these, go one, two, three, four, okay? Then grab this whole thing just like this, and you're ready to rock. Now, you see that school of bait right there? And now you got a big spread. That's it, big spread, now we'll catch a lot of fish. There we go, I'm pulling that up. This is how we reload the net, I'm going to bring it up, we didn't catch anything on that one, but this is how you bring it up, shake all the water off it so that's it's not that heavy. Make sure it's not tangled up, okay, make sure everything's even up here, there we go, Okay, now make sure the net is really smooth, laying down, no tangles, lay it down nice and easy. Come up here to the crown, make sure everything is beautiful, and you're ready to go. I'm Mark the Shark. Thank you for watching.
