Being Patient Pays Off!

A common problem many surf casters have when using a plug or lure when fishing for bluefish and especially stripers, is that they attempt to set the hook too soon.  Let the striper bite down on it before you lean back....I t first inhales it with alotttt of water..expells the water. and then bites down. Granted, this is only a sec or two...but your instantaneous yank can pull the plug free instead of burying the trebles.....Remember don't ever set a hook. bait or plug. unless the line is taunt.  Tight lines up your odds for a hook up................immensly.
