the act of finding out who the nerd is in a group by throwing out incomplete or incorrect information in order for the nerd to ''bite' by adding more info(more than general knowledge) or correcting the original statement or phrase
me: Hey i went to the museum and saw the fat venus.

nerd: do you mean the Venus of Willendorf? when were you in Vienna? did you know that It is carved from an oolitic limestone etc, etc...

The act of going somewhere nerds would be in an attempt to find a nerd to hit on.
Ted: "Hey dude, want to go to game stop with me?"

Frank: "What game are you going to be getting?"

Ted: "There aren't any games out that I'm interested in, I just wanted to go nerd fishing"

Frank: "Hells yes! That gamer chick we saw there last week was super hot!"
