at times, it will be a violent take ( crankbaits, jerk baits, spinners .... or feel small taps or pressure or weightlessness on your line (usually fishing plastics or jigs on the bottom)
also you can watch your line see if it changes direction in relation to where you have cast, have caught many just watching the line close to where I casted and you will see the line move before you feel it, normally wind up slack until you feel weight and give a good strike to set.
it varies from day to day dpending on how aggressively they are feeding.
how I learnt to feel the bites was to start fishing live worms on a small Carolina rig casting it and dragging it next to structure once I figure out how to catch them , then progressed to lures.
