Everyone's advice has been really great for helping me learn (thanks everyone!) so I feel a little silly asking this one, but I'm having trouble with my hook sets.
I see the bass strike my lure, and I give the rod a good, hard, clean sweep in order to set the hook. But, when I go to reel in the bass, it either spits my lure or I end up reeling the lure right out of the basses mouth! What should I do?
