Flipping and Punching

Aug 29, 2019

No more secrets! If you want to catch bass in heavy cover, this video is for you! Did you know you can punch with a dropshot? In today’s in-depth video the guys cover this trick and so much more as they give away all the secrets to consistently catching bass with a flipping stick.

When Summer largemouth bass head deep into heavy cover it requires very heavy tackle to get them back out. Punching, flipping, and pitching are the three techniques used to reach these bass lurking in the shadows. If you’re the first angler in your area to pick up a flippin stick you will be amazed by how many bass are deep in the cover. Matt and Tim put their heads together in this nearly 40-minute seminar and teach everything from creature bait selection to color preferences, right down to which speed reel will make your life easier for a long day of flipping.

Traditionally these bass are reached using a heavy Texas-Rigged creature bait on 65 lb braid. This method is deadly and has been responsible for producing an incredible number of big bass. However, as fish become conditioned there are times that a heavy jig and even a heavy dropshot will far outshine the Texas Rig. Knowing this little nuances makes all the difference and Matt and Tim aren’t afraid to show you exactly how and when to make the adjustments.

Below is a breakdown of all the gear discussed in today’s video. It is broken down by style to make it easier to follow along.
