When you get right down to it, you have to be able to set the hook in order to catch fish. It takes time and practice. It also takes patience. In a given situation, several factors may affect how you go about setting the hook – like fish species, the mood of the fish on a particular day, and your bait presentation. But here are some of the basics.
The motion of setting the hook is relatively simple. But it can sometimes be difficult to tell if you have a bite or if you're just feeling the current or a fish bumping into the bait. The more you know about the fish you’re after, and the more time you spend on the water practicing, the better you’ll get.
