When you feel a fish bite, the best thing to do is set the hook. This can be done by quickly jerking the pole towards you. Doing so will ensure that the hook catches onto the fish’s mouth and prevents it from getting away.

When you feel a fish bite, you need to set the hook. This means that you need to quickly and firmly jerk the fishing rod in the direction of the fish. This will cause the lure or bait to fly out of the fish’s mouth and onto its head. At this point, it should be easy to reel the fish in.

When you feel a fish bite, you should immediately set the hook by jerking your fishing rod up and towards the fish. If done correctly, this will cause the fish to become hooked on the end of your line. Then, reel the fish in as quickly as possible to avoid losing it.

When a fish takes your lure, it feels like all of the weight has suddenly been taken off of the line. You’ll feel a sudden ‘jolt’ and if you’re using a spinning reel, you’ll hear the line start to spin rapidly.

At this point, it’s important not to give any slack in the line or to start reeling in until you’ve ascertained that the fish is on. If you start reeling in too soon, you might end up pulling the hook out of the fish’s mouth.

It feels like your lure was just snatched away by a giant. When a fish takes your lure, it’s pulled away with such speed and force that it can feel like the line is going to snap. The sudden jerk on the line can also create an unexpected jolt in your body, which makes the experience all the more exhilarating.

It feels like a slight tickle. When a fish takes your lure, it feels like a light tickle as the fish swims away with it. This is because the vibration of the lure mimics the movement of an insect or other prey item.

It feels like the fish is tugging at the line and you’re fighting to keep it from getting away. You feel a sense of excitement and adrenaline as you try to reel in your catch.

I want to summarize my team’s responses. I think it’s important for beginning fishermen. The principle of hooking a fish and the procedure are as follows.
As soon as you see a nibble, you need to remove as much slack in the line as possible, and that between the reel and the hook was a little tension (tension).
The most important thing – give the fish to swallow the bait deeper (this requires patience and experience) and only then sharply hook it. If you hurry, the fish will spit out the hook.
