Professional bass angler Jacob Wheeler treats flipping and pitching shallow water cover much the same way offshore fisherman approach deep structure. Different angles of approach, aka casting angles, often produce different results. Fish orientation to structure and cover varies for reasons often unknown and unseen, so casting angle experimentation can help you unlock the bite or get additional bites from fish missed from a single angle of approach. This concept is equally pertinent when fishing shallow cover as it is in deeper scenarios.
