May is primetime for shallow water flipping and pitching on lakes throughout much of the country. High water sends bass into thickets of flooded brush for spawning and feeding opportunities before reservoir levels recede. Not only is this shallow-water flipping and pitching bite among the most exciting in bass fishing, it accounts for some of the biggest bass. Elite Series pro Jacob Wheeler walks us through his approach to reading brush like structure; bass will position in some obvious locations once you learn what to look for. It's then a matter of having some specialized gear in hand to take the battle to the fish in some of the thickest cover you'll ever fish. Jacob also shares his go-to flipping presentation and rigging. Follow this guidance, and you'll be well on your way to some life-altering action!
