Technique : Using our Signature Flipping Jigs, Pitch/Flip jig anywhere around the wooded structure, try to spend time on the first few structure areas and dial in where the fish are holding on each cover. Once dialed in, target those areas more. We have found slower presentations on the bottom work better UNLESS fish are hitting on the initial fall of the Jig...in that case BE READY as soon as you cast! JIGMASTERS' FAVORITE STYLE
