Default Re: Hook set: Rod, strip, both?

Small fish like trout and panfish, I lift the rod and give a short strip just to make sure all slack is out of the line. At least that is what I THINK I do, it all happens so fast!

For larger species, I strip set. Striped bass can be tough to get the hook in to so a sudden jolt on the line usually gets the job done.
