I don't fish with natural bait often, but I was considering it this year. Some articles reflect that natural bait from the habitat are best. Is it worth investing the money and time to get a net as opposed to just buying it wherever I'm going. Its probably just personal preference but there is probably a time investment learning to cast off a kayak without flipping it. Can always cast for bait before launch but I'm usually just aching to get out on the water.
