How to Flip Wood for the Most Bass

In lakes with a lot of bass, individual pieces of shoreline wood like laydowns can hold several fish. A lot of anglers immediately flip or pitch to the best looking part, often right in the middle of the thick stuff, but this is a mistake. Elite Series and FLW Tour pro Jacob Wheeler shows us step-by-step, how he starts from the outside and works his way in on complex woody cover. If you go for the “juice” right away, you’re pulling bass through the entire body of the cover, and spook fish that may be holding at the outer edges. Why settle for one bass when you can catch three off a tree?
