Flipping And Pitching?

Recommended Posts

For one of my lakes it would be during the spawn when the males are in beds because the deepest part of the lake which is only 7 feet is all weeds. So I think the females would be there. Also during the summer because there is some cover on the bottom below the weeds and the weeds would be a nice cover for those bass to stay cool during the summer

I flip and pitch ALL year long, but during the year you might have to change the types of cover you fish.

I almost never flip (just don't care for it) but I pitch jigs all season long.

 

Every season is Jig season.

 

It is my most productive technique and I enjoy it almost as much as fishing

a frog in the slop.

While I tend to prefer deeper water fishing, pitching to heavy cover is a proven technique for all seasons. When the fish are related to beds, being able to put your bait where you want is absolutely essential. When those beds are up in the woods great pitching skills can make all the difference. I fish with a guy who like JT above, pitches to impossible spots with rifle like accuracy. He catches fish that I simply can't. I am working hard to improve my skills because my fragile ego can only take so many whoppings :cry4: . So, in summary, pitching well is an important skill any time bass are holding in heavy cover, which is pretty much anytime!

 

I can't really say much about flipping. I don't much like it either.

X2.

 

You flip and pitch all year.

 

I like to pitch more than flip.
