If you know any anglers that fish down here in the south USA, you know that we're going to be flipping nine out of 10 times that we're on the water. It's no mistake that we're talking about the Flip Flop. This has got to be one of the most unique flipping baits on the market. Not only because it's something new that the fish haven't seen, but take a look at those unique ribbon sides.
The Chasebaits Flip Flop is created passionately distinct with a bold design and unique profile to help sway the odds in your favour on the water. This bait on the fall and pause gives off so much vibration, and such a unique look that fish haven't seen before. You're almost guaranteed to catch the wariest fish that has every other bait in the water.
Now, our favorite hook to use is a 4 rod EWG. And the weight we recommend, being that you’ll be flipping a lot of cane and pencil reeds, is a quarter ounce Tungsten weight.
The Flip Flop is designed with mesmerizing rolling hoods wings that require a supple material, which makes this bait so effective.
Many hooks are suitable, and can be used depending on your requirements. However, we recommend a hook with a twist-lock keeper.
Using a twist or screw-lock keeper is the option for these baits and will minimise the chance of tearing.
- Screw the keeper into the center of the nose
- Attach your worm hook the keeper, and take note of the hook exit point on the body
- Insert your hook as indicated. Make sure there is not too much tension on the body of the bait.
The preferred method for weedless rigging: A wormhook, either weighted or un-weighted with a twist-lock keeper
Don't Need A Weedless Setup? A 2/0 - 4/0 Jig Head is our preferred option! This is one of the strongest rigging options for the Flip Flop.
- Locate the centre of the bait on the nose.
- Feed the hook through the middle of the bait, ensuring you keep it straight.
If rigging with a standard worm hook, we have a few tips!
- Measure your hook against the body of the bait.
- Make sure the entry and exit points match the dimension of your hook.
