Poll: How often do you check your baits? Actually how often do you reel in your bait (without a strike indication) to see if your bait is still OK, before throwing it back out? Specify if you are fishing the fast tailrace of a dam or a calm lake, if you're using cut bait or live bait, if your drifting trolling or anchored (or bank fishing). Personally, I want to let the bait sit awhile to let the scent disperse; but I don't want to leave my hook out there if the bait has been robbed already. P.S. Also; How often do you change baits, if the whole original bait is still on the hook after reeling it in just to check it?
