The Importance of Properly Setting the Hook

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The art of properly catching a fish starts with learning how to properly set the hook. Watch the above video which demonstrates some of the most popular techniques for sinking the hook in the mouth of the fish without tearing the lip area in pulling the hook out. So many fish are lost this way and the video brings notice to that point in great detail.

I know I have personally lost many fish because I either ripped the hook out of the fishes mouth or I didn’t set the hook enough to penetrate the fishes mouth. It took me a while to learn how to do it right. The video is about bass fishing, but the hook setting technique will work great with any freshwater game fish species in North America. (Like trout, catfish, walleye, pike, musky, salmon, etc.)

  • Great video. I’ve got a draft post called “Wait for the Weight” exactly about waiting til you feel the weight of the fish. I’ll be linking to this post because the hook set method here is great advice on what to do after you feel the weight.

  • Thanks, All links are greatly appreciated. I will be checking out your blog once in a while for your post on hook setting.
