How to Set Your Hook

Before you go deep sea fishing, watch this short video to learn the basics of setting your hook. When you feel the slight tug of a fish nipping at your bait and hook, you want to “set the hook” by pulling hard on your rod and fishing line.

To improve your reaction time, keep your body in a relaxed standing position, with your feet about shoulder-width apart and your knees slightly bent. If you have any difficulties, your fishing charter captain can give you some additional pointers.

The next time you’re looking for a fishing charter, call Captain John Whale Watching & Fishing Tours at (508) 927-5575. We provide some of the greatest whale watching and deep sea fishing trips near Plymouth.
