Molly describe about her winning in staking someone at poker games:

The players were here, I just had to bait the hook. This time I didn't have movie stars. This time I used Playboy Playmates..

What is the meaning of "bait the hook"?
we say "bait a hook to catch a fish", but here article "the" used before "hook".

    If you have a hook on your fishing pole, you bait the hook (the specific one that you have). Same thing.
