|Dear PFIC community,
I've been fishing for rock cod (and other types of fish) from the shores during more than one year now with some success.
In any case, after one year, I still have two questions. First, I use a hi/lo baited tackle. I cast and place the fishing pole nearby. Then I wait and look at the pole tip.
1) How can one distinguish between bites and seaweed, waves, etc? Sometimes, it is so clear that a fish bit. But, other times, when I retrieve there is actually a fish! Or I think they bit, but I retrieve nothing.
2) Is it waiting for fish to hook itself good? Or shall I set the hook? In the latter case, how?
