A Technique To Catch Trophy Size Bass
There is a craze going on that produces big bass, it's called flippin. Flippin puts the lure where the big bass are.....in cover! You will want a 7 1/2 to 8 foot rod with at least 20 pound test on your reel with the drag tightened. You will also want a 1/8 ounce to 1 ounce weight according to the cover you are trying to go through. Don't forget the big hook, 4/0 to 5/0 is best in my opinion.
The technique.....silently put your boat within 20 feet of the cover you want to fish. Hold the rod in your right hand (presuming you are right handed). Measure the line to let out according to your rod length and with your left hand pull about 2 feet of line out. Make sure the reel is in free spool and place your thumb on the spool. Move the rod so the lure pendulums to your target and when you have the lure where you want it to be, move your other hand with the line in it towards the reel. The lure will fall in the cover with hardly any distubance. Now, watch the water and your line. Sometimes just a slight line movement will indicated a hit or even cover movement and you won't feel anything until you set the hook. When you have a hit, drop the tip of your rod, reel up the slack and set the hook really hard.
