Comes from the fishing tactic.

Hang a nice juicy bait from a shiny shiny hook (or a string of several of them). Leave it be... and see what bites. You're not fishing for anything specific, you're just looking for anything to bite the hook you've left there.

Trolling on the internet is similar - bait a hook (a statement that's very difficult to resist responding to) and see who takes the bait (by responding to it).

Alinoee, the response about trolling was not aimed at you - it was a reply to someone asking what trolling is (probably since they read the post about the rules!).

Wow... In case you didn't notice I was replying to a question that someone asked... It wasn't a dig at you. So please kindly back up. Thank you.
