How to Pace & Position When Fishing Shallow Cover

In a recent series, National Championship, I spent some time describing how important it was to work cover a certain way while flipping/pitching.  The video above is a look at some of those tactics.  It really attempts to look at the topic of “boat positioning” and some of the do’s and don’ts when it comes to working cover especially in a situation where you are flipping and pitching.

Topics Covered Included:

  • Pacing
  • Prioritizing trolling motor operation over baits and a “splashless” entry
  • Consider how the depth you are operating the boat in affects the cover you are trying to fish
  • Examples of “broken cover” and why they are important.

This is just an excerpt from a lesson covered in one of our courses.
