Flipping and pitching are two highly effective methods used by experienced anglers to target bass in heavy cover, such as weed beds, docks, fallen trees, and brush piles. These techniques allow you to present your bait accurately and quietly, giving you the advantage of reaching those hard-to-reach areas where bass often hide.
