Good hit? CRUSHED.

Sneaky hit? Telegraphed.

"Took him for a walk"

(when fishing a worm or jig and you lift on the rod a few extra times as it swims to make sure it is on prior to setting the hook).

its not exactly a term of endearment as you should have set the hook already...but we have all done it!

For me a bite is a "hit" 90% of the time, if it's an aggressive bite I'll use "crushed it".

I only use hit. For some reason, most of the other terms annoy me. I think it because I watch too much fishing on TV/youtube.

The most famous saying for a strike is "hook up", covers all fishing situations.

I'm bit

I'm on

big fish

get the net

All the above in that order.

Hit, fish on, slammed it if the bite is aggressive.

"Hammered it" or "Hit it like a freight train" for moving baits or when a big channel catfish grabs your lure.  A much more subtle "There he is" for bottom bouncing baits.

I think this will be the new one to catch on among us: Avocadoed it!

My reactions seem to be gender specific ~ I'll often go with either . . . .

"She Choked it"  or  "He Hammered it".

I'll also openly admit that I can never determine gender by virtue of just the strike.

Once it's in the net - I don't actually care.

That's sexist...

I usually say something along the lines of, "Hey, it IS a fish".  If I say anything at all.  I'm usually too afraid I'll jinx it.
