If the fish sees the bait again, and the hook is still baited it will bite almost immediately. It depends on whether the fish swims away or stays in the area near the bait. Fish have notoriously horrible memories (scientifically speaking, of course, fish don't really have a memory at all in the way that humans do). Personally, doing catch and release fishing, I have caught the same fish twice in a row on many occasions. This is in fishing in shallow water, where the bait is always near the fish's habitat.

If you are struggling with the fish, and he breaks free before you reel it in, the fish might instinctively swim away from the bait, which will reduce the chances of it biting the same line right away, just because of the distance to the bait. Of course, it also depends on if the fish gets away with the bait -- if you're using live bait, and the fish manages to get away with the bait, it may not bite again for a little while.
