Flippin' Freshwater Baits

[bc_video video_id="3627274123001" account_id="1079334796001" player_id="default"]



In this Florida Sportsman seminar, Reel Time Host Capt. George Gozdz demonstrates a common freshwater technique of flipping in heavy structure.




To be successful while fishing around heavy structure, it requires tackle that can withstand the extra stress and weight put on by the weeds and grasses of a freshwater ecosystem. Rigging the bait weedless is also another technique that needs to be utilized in order to make cleaner casts and retrieves without pulling up the surrounding vegetation.

While fishing for largemouth bass, Gozdz briefly talks about tackle and techniques used when fishing in the sweet water.
