Don't Lose Your Fish!

Nothing is more of a pain when a fish takes your bait , then to have it swim toward shore after the take.  What do you do.....hope she swallows it before detecting the hook...??......That will cost you a hook up!.......Do not typically strike the fish as you would when it flees away from you or to the side. Instead.....reel quickly and set the hook with sweeping side strokes......you may get a piece of the side of his mouth.  I am aggressive with bites....I don't waste them with ...."I hope he swallows it"......Please practice catch and release.
