Welcome to the Calusa Trading Company
Home of the Calusa Cast Net and the Cracker Cast Net
The Calusa Trading Company was born from the determination of two fishermen to design and make the highest quality cast nets available. Fishermen know what they are looking for in a quality cast net. We developed a cast net that laid flatter, sank faster and threw easier than any other cast net we had ever tried. Our cast nets are made from the highest quality monofilament available. Our nets are hand sewn into six panels allowing for the cast net to lay flat. All of our nets are extra heavy; 1 1/2 lbs per foot (i.e. a 10' cast net weighs 15 lbs).

Our cast nets are tested in real conditions by real fishermen. No one wants to kill themselves getting bait because of a bad net. Our cast nets meet all the demands of professional fishing guides and serious fisherman. We are confident you will agree that our nets are better than any you've ever used.
When every throw counts - and every throw ALWAYS counts - use a Calusa or Cracker Cast net.

Throw it - You'll Know It!

What is the best cast net for a beginner?

The most popular size net is an 8' radius cast net. This net will spread to 16 feet. It is easy to learn to throw and still catch lots of bait.

Once you master this size you may want to step to a larger net for a larger spread.

What is the best mesh size for me?

There are a lot of questions you must answer to choose the right mesh. What depth of water will I be throwing? How big are the baits I am targeting?

The bigger the mesh size the quicker it sinks but the baits need to be larger. You want to avoid "gilling" the bait in the net.

The most versatile mesh size is 3/8".

How are the cast nets measured?

All of our nets are measured by radius. Example: An 8' high (radius) will open to 16' (diameter).

The mesh is always stated in square mesh. Example 3/8" mesh (square) would be 3/4" (stretch).

How much is shipping for a cast net?

$25.00 flat shipping charge for any cast net shipped in the continental United States (UPS Ground). We do not ship international.

Do I have to have a Paypal account to purchase?

No. You can use a credit card (visa,mc,discovery, or amex.) or your Paypal account. This provides the best security for our customers.

My credit card is not processing?
