This step is made to intice the fish. For most weedless worms and grubs you cast the bait in and let it sink a bit. Then you jerk it up and down a little bit, stop, reel and jerk it, stop, and continue this until you have reeled it in. For worms and bobbers you let it just sit, watching the bobber. You can move it in a little bit which may attract the fish. For other baits suck as top-of-the-water frogs and poppers, you contently reel it in only stopping a little at a time. A couple times during the reel you can jerk back a little. You do the same thing for diving baits (make sure it’s not weedy water).
