    Outdoor Play Trap Design Fishing Mesh Net No Need Hooks | Wish

    Link above is to an item I see all over Wish. Many of the people selling it, advertise it as a safe way of catching fish without potential harming them or for catching bait fish BUT being in SoCal.... would this be considered a cast net?... or an extremely small dip net? Kinda looks like it’s an ultra small gill net but idk. I’m curious to see if it works and want to make a video on it but I want to make sure it’s legal first.

    Catfish and Carp did a video featuring one of these relatively recently.

    I'd imagine that that would be a grey area, which here in CA I would take to mean as don't do it unless you want to have a very long talk with a warden which may or may not end with you getting cited for using illegal equipment...

    Looks like a castable throw net . In CA illegal to even have one in your car while fishing.

    Bottom feeders collaborating on fishing videos! Sounds like collusion!

    When I fished Santa Clara Pt with regularity there would almost always be a batch of guys fishing the dock there, throwing out a cast net for shark/ray bait. Called it in a few times, never saw it be dealt with though.
