Okay let us get into a little bit on how to pitch spinning tackle. I am using a plastic worm and 14 pound tess-fire-line. This is one of my jig flipping pitching rods and the technique is I want to have the lower about as long as the reel, give or take and then I want to hold the line in my hand. I am going to drop the rod. It's going to have the lower swing forward. As it's swinging forward, I am going to flick the rod which is going to load it and which is going to cast it. So it's going to look like that.
That went about 30 feet. Very easy to pitch without a lot of force. Here it is again. And I control the lure in the air with the friction of my hand. I raise the rod tip, increase friction on the guides to pull it up off the water a little bit, if it's going too low of a trajectory. And so you can control the bait in the air. You can pull back to the side. You can slow it down. You can let it go to get it further and then stop it at the very end. There is a lot of adjustments you can do when it is in the air.
I want you to see the technique and practice it. So you start it about like that and flick. And I can get it quite away so it's very accurate, very soft landing. Here is one more technique I'd like you to see. This is a harder longer distance pitch, where you swing it out. You go past on the side end and then fling it. I almost got caught in here, not that close. So you get a lot of distance. With distance comes less accuracy and more splash potential. You want to stick to 30-45 foot, range because that is the most controlled soft entry, easier to hit a target and you are going to do real good doing that.
Give that a try and perfect it and you'll catch a lot of fish. There is also pitch-skipping. I'll show you that, and that is vertical, so it is very accurate and it's --and you keep it lower, you keep the rod pretty close to level. One more time, like that. You want to let it run, you don't want to control the line. You want to let it run underneath that dock, underneath that bush as far as you can. So that's how you do it. Give it a practice. Let me know what do you think and see you on the lake sometime.
