Wired2Fish contributor Kobie Koenig shares his top 5 soft bait styles for flipping and pitching bass in various grass types and around woody cover. The baits discussed range from tube-style plastics, beaver and creature baits, flapping plastics with lots of action (flash and vibration), and solid-bodied streamlined baits that excel for penetrating the cover.


While all bass plastics have a time and place, some perform much better than others depending on the situation; a basic understanding of bait shape, size, appendages, or lack thereof influence when and where to use them.
