“Flipping” for flounder (with spinning rods)
“Flipping” is generally a termed most often associated with largemouth bass fishing. It involves under handed “flips” or “pitches” to nearby cover. I grew up flipping whacky worms into close cover in our local bayous with a spinning rod and have honed my skills using them for this application with flounder.
If you want to use my techniques for fishing close cover for flounder, I highly recommend learning how to flip and using a spinning rod. A HUGE advantage is you will not backlash with a spinning rod and in the high winds we have on the coast, even the best angler can backlash trying to flip.
This photo was taken of me while flounder fishing in Louisiana and we were in 15 plus mile an hour winds. I was still able to make some 20 plus yard flips into tight cover with no worry of backlash and extreme focus. I am a big believer in eliminating problems, not just learning to work around them.
