as long as one cannot see the opposite bank "river mouth" then one is technically correct in using the net!!!!

so I would get the live mullet at the mouth, 2 hours after the turn of low tide.
then keep them live, transport them to your spot and fish with them


Don't know if that is true? Cast netting in estuaries is permitted, just not after sunset/ before sunrise?
Certain estuaries might have specific rules but in general cast netting is allowed in estuaries.

Regulations specific to recreational cast-netting
(14) The holder of a recreational fishing permit endorsed for cast-netting shall not catch, disturb, land, keep, or control:
(a) any fish not listed in the Species List of Table 1,
(b) more fish than the bag-limit listed in respect of each species in Species List of Table 1 during any one day;
(c) any fish smaller than, or of a mass less than, the size-limit listed in respect of each species in the Species List of Table 1;
(15) The holder of a recreational fishing permit endorsed for cast-netting shall not fish or attempt to catch fish between sunset and sunrise.


we were not allowed to use cast nets in the st lucia estuary.
as long as you could not see the other bank...then they could not do anything as such.

but if it is allowed, then good for you guys
