Just go out to some uncrowded dock etc and throw. Sometimes the bait is there and sometimes it isn't. Either way you get practice. Lots of people wait to see bait on the surface before throwing but you can catch a lot of bait by throwing blind too.

Go buy a cheap pair of knee high stockings, some cheap wet cat food. Get some rocks.
Cut the knee highs into 4 inch long sections and stuff with rocks and cat food and knot on both ends. We used to call these, bait bombs Find a dock or pier with a light close by. Make sure you aren't in a high current area. Take a knife and poke a few holes in the bait bomb then throw it in the water as close to the light as possible. Let the bait bomb sit for an hour, then start throwing the net over where you dropped the bomb. I have filled many a 5 gallon bucket up with shrimp using this method

Wow! Those are some nice shrimps, I mean shrimp .
Is the light necessary for catching shrimp or are the bait balls enough?
I've had people tell me big shrimp can be caught on string?
