Tossing a cast net from your yak can be done sitting or standing (he gives some instructions on both) but is definitely something really useful to learn. Gathering bait can be a fun and essential part of kayak fishing. Learn to throw the net sitting down and you'll never be without bait! In fact, you'll probably have more than you know what to do with. Personally, I cast from a standing position and do not use the net in the mouth technique, it gets too much weight high up which makes things tippier. I throw low and out not up and close. This technique also catches more bait with fewer casts.
