Setting the Hook

Hook Setting: Sweep It, Snap It or Start Reeling

By Ben Team

It’s the moment of truth.

You’ve dragged your Texas-rig across the same point three times with no takers.  But on the fourth pass, you feel the distinctive tap-tap, signifying that you’ve just fooled your fish.  Somewhere in the murky green water below, a largemouth bass has just inhaled your lure.  Your senses lock in on rod, reel, line and water.  You tighten your grip and get ready to claim your prize.
