Cast Your Net
About This Image
Using a cast net is common in Louisiana and Lake Pontchartrain. Mom said they used to sell buckets of clams on Thursdays to use to bait an area so that you can catch shrimp with the nets. Clams along the bottom of Lake Pontchartrain are edible but are not eaten like elsewhere. Maybe we have too much other good food to eat.
Casting a net is a skill. In this picture, the skill is being taught by one man to another. I used to be able to do this and catch an occasional fish for dinner. If the back ever gets better, then I might be able to do it again. Who knows?
