The hook is weighed down with a heavy weight with the hook and bait float from it either on the bottom or just above it. When a fish takes the bait, it will feel the resistance of the heavy weight. It will then try and move away fast. This is your moment to strike by pulling hard on the line to make sure that you have caught the fish. It is then up to you to carefully play the fish until you can get it to the surface. Sometimes the fish will be powerful and heavy and will break the line if you are not careful. This is where the real skill in fishing comes in, you have to wear the fish down. It is then a battle of strength and wits between the two of you. It is very satisfying to land a fish after a long struggle and will get you hooked on fishing for sure.
