Find a clean spot in your yard and practice, practice, practice!
Chad Ferguson has a video that makes it easy to learn.

ProKast Perfect Circle works like a charm for 6 - 8' radius nets...good luck on that 10' net. FYI...7' is the max in Texas waters.

I started out with a 7 ft SuperSpreader. I now throw a 5 ft net. The 7 ft one kept getting caught on the boat hand rails

I throw mostly peanuts, (shape) and occassional taco. You gotta be a pretty dump live bait to get caught in a taco. Good luck

I tried and tried to learn to throw a big one but never got it down. I'm way more productive with a smaller net that opens every time. This is not me but how I throw mine: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ckm6BIVryEY

Go with someone who knows how to throw it. Take your phone and video them. Download it on your computer or on your TV screen

Biggest I have thrown is an 8 footer (Texoma), but I threw it exactly how I throw all of my other ones. I would just practice a lot. There are a lot of variations out there on how to throw a net, find what is comfortable for you and do that.

Gizzard shad tend to keep their belly in the mud so yes, let it sink to the bottom.
