Flipping & Pitching


Flipping and pitching is extremely popular among largemouth bass anglers.  The reason for this is that there are so many lakes and rivers that have a ton of heavy cover and flipping and pitching is the only way to get into some of these tough to fish spots consistently.  When flipping and pitching, make sure you’re using heavier line with a heavy rod as well.  Some anglers go with braid and super lines from 40 to 65 pound test.  In some situations, you could easily get away with 20 pound line, but the thickness of the cover and the size of the bass will dictate what you need to get those big fish out.  Some of the popular baits for flipping and pitching are bass jigs and soft plastics.
