hey guys, i have fished off and on my whole life, but since living in the city, haven't done it in like 15 years. recently i started carrying a telescopic rod/reel with me when i play golf and have had a lot of success. i don't know though if i know what i'm doing, i think i may just be getting lucky. the fish i catch usually take the bait hard, so no question on what to do...just reel in.
so let me ask...if i feel a fish bite, normally i tug hard to set the hook, but it seems that never works. i figure the fish is either too small or i should let the bait sit and i shouldn't reel in, and let the fish take the bait? i don't really know what to do. i've caught a lot of fish but i feel like 80% more fish have taken my bait and i never reeled them in. thanks for the help.
btw i usually use a texas rigged grub or a 2-treble minnow (both fake). they both have caught me a lot of perch and bass in golf course ponds. thanks!
