SPOONS set the hook or don\'t set the hook

When trolling spoons such as Coyotes Do you set the hook on the take down or do you let them hammer it a little before you pick up the rod then do you set the hook or not????? H E L P. -- :shrug:

Out in the salt the fish set the hook themselves. If you were to try and set the hook you might rip there lips off. You're already pulling 3 knots against the fish.

Most folks have their rods in a rod holder and pick it up after the fish is on.

At bouy 10 using an E-Z diver we would often times let line out after missing a fish and the diver resets itself and sometimes comes back for it.

Im assuming your using down riggers, the fishing pulling the line out of the clip well usually do it.

Loose drags, no hook set, soft mouths.
