Step 1: Remain calm Remain calm and focus on keeping the line taught and the fish under control as it darts through the water. Step 2: Set the drag Set your reel's drag to wear the fish out and let out some line when the fish thrashes in the water. Tip Don't be afraid to wrestle with the fish and let it wear itself out -- just stay in control. Step 3: Raise the pole's tip Raise the fishing pole's tip so it stays up and keep your body facing the direction of the fish, moving around the boat, dock, or bank if you have to. Step 4: Avoid overpowering the fish Avoid trying to overpower the fish by dragging it through the water. This will cause the drag to release more line or, worse, snap the line. Step 5: Avoid beaching Avoid beaching or removing the fish from the water with the rod. Keep several feet of line out as you or a buddy scoop up the whopper with a net. Did You Know?
