If you have a dealers license you can not use a cast net on lake Erie.
But if you do not have a dealers license you can unless posted.
"Minnow dip net (square) meshes may not be larger than 1/2 inch. The maximum size on any side of dip nets is 4 feet in the Inland Fishing District, 6 feet in the Lake Erie District. Bait fish may be taken with cast nest except within a distance of one thousand feet down stream from any dam posted with Division of Wildlife signs indicating cast net use is prohibited. It is unlawful to use a cast net with a square mesh less than 1/4 inch or larger than 1 inch on a side, or with a diameter of less than 6 feet or more than 10 feet."
