Use Your Rod to Fish Entire Piece of Cover

It’s widely preached that making multiple casts to the same piece of cover from all sorts of positions can finally get that big ol’ bass to bite, but you can also achieve similar like results in a single cast by putting your rod to work. Elite Series pro Dennis Tietje shares his method for thoroughly working a single piece of cover like a stump in only a cast or two. By following this technique, you can cover more water and increase strikes while reducing the amount of casts made.
