Made 1st trip to Twok last week, but couldn't get a consistent opening. Searched YouTube and watched about 8 videos and saw 8 different ways. Looking for the easiest, no teeth throw for a 7' net. Thx for help.

Iím out on this one, I use the hold on your teeth method. My kid uses some sort of double load method with no teeth and has decent luck.

I use my teeth and toss a net a lot. My kids learned to not use there teeth.
If your throwing a 7 foot net there is your issue. Donít throw it just toss it. Slow down and just toss it out there.
Seems to always help my casts

Ok, I have a cracked front tooth but may have to try that way if it is easy. Do y'all have a link to your method?

Hold the net about 1/3 of the way down, then grab the net and put the line in your hand. Grab it two more times and do the same. Then gently toss it out, donít hurl it.

I couldn't explain it without making a video haha but I'll try. I don't use my teeth.

I attach it to my right wrist. I coil the line counter clock wise in my right hand, leaving a foot or so before the brails hanging. I put the top of the net in my right hand (horn is above my fist a few inches) weights down horn up. I coil the net one time about 1/3-1/2 of the way down clockwise, leaving the coil (or looped net) hanging on the outside of my hand. With my left hand I pick up the assembly line and place it in my right hand (which has everything before this bundled in it) between my index and thumb. I then take my left hand and grab the assembly line again, leaving a few feet between the first grab of the assembly line and the second, and coil it clockwise in my right hand (between index and thumb) leaving it coiled the same way I did the net body earlier, coiled to the outside of my fist. Then I split in half what is left hanging. I hold that in my left hand about 6" above the weights. When I throw I make a fan motion with my right hand from right to left, letting go with my left hand, last. Its more about technique than power. Once you get the technique down, you can power it but 90% of the time you shouldn't have to.

That might have sounded dumb but it made sense in my head roflmao

I throw a 7ft net and don't put any in my teeth. The instructions that come with the nets you buy at Walmart is basically the method I use.

I normally use my teeth, but if I need a little more distance I use the method in this video. Having a quality net (I use a 7' 3/8" mesh Bait Buster, 1.5lbs per ft.)and conditioning it in fabric softener makes throwing it easier as well.

Google the shrimpers method. Itís on fitecs site I think it works pretty good if you donít mind getting a little wet.
