By dropping back he means feeding slack so your bait drops back/stalls in the water

"Dropping back" a bait is simply free spooling a bait after a fish had picked it up and allowing the fish to get a better hold on the bait before putting the reel in gear. This gives a circle hook a better shot at catching the corner of the mouth.

If your trolling you would have it in gear. So do you normally see the sail fish hit so you can open the spool or does most drift with the spool open when fishing with circle hooks? What if you turned your drag way down to where it would drag the bait but not have much resistance on a strike?
