One method, the same as used on sailfish, is the "bait and switch." Here, the use of hookless baits, or "teasers," draws the striped marlin to the boat. Once the fish is brought within casting range, the teaser bait is pulled from the fish. At the same instant, a rigged bait is dropped in to replace it. From there, the same rules used in trolling - free-spooling and an ample dropback - are observed.
