Now for the fishing! I was working a flippin' and mat punching bite as the sea of hydrilla would meet up with a mat or a group of pads. Typically, the hydrilla does not grow at the base of the pads or underneath a mat that has been stationary for a period of time. The bass then use these voids in the hydrilla when associated with a mat or isolated group of pads as an area to get in the shade and ambush prey.
The two techniques, as I explained in the video was using a heavy punching setup and a light flipping set up. The heavy set up was a MHX Rods FP937 with a Abu Garcia Revo SX spooled with 65lb Power Pro, a Gambler Lures Burner Craw on a 4/0 Hack Attack flippin' hook, Picasso 1.5oz. tungsten and a 6th Sense Peg-X.
