One of the most common questions I hear when taking greenhorns trolling
is “How do you know when we get a bite?” For the initiated it may sound
like a silly question but after trying to see it through their eyes it
doesn’t seem so silly. Bear in mind that to most people, you know you
have a bite when the fish pulls on one end of the bobber and the other
end stands up. When trolling the rods are in perpetual motion from the
wind and waves and it really isn’t always so easy to detect strikes
unless one knows what to look for.
