Fishing nets could be either let down (Luke 5:4) from a boat, or cast (John 21:6), or thrown from the shore (Matt. 4:18). The dragnet (Matt. 13:47) which collected a variety of species of fish (there were twenty-four species in the Sea of Galilee) would have been weighted at the bottom, with the top held up by floats.
