Wired2Fish’s Kyle Peterson heads out on some local waters for some matted grass bass action. Depending on cover density, it’s often beneficial to downsize flipping hooks from 5/0 and 4/0 sizes down to a more compact 3/0. This forces the use of smaller plastics that slip through cover with ease, especially when paired with a 3/0 hook. ease.

Kyle emphasizes not to overlook seemingly impenetrable grass. We loaded this video with underwater shots from the scene to prove the point that there’s a lot of habitable water underneath most mats. Just make sure to work the entire depth column.
