How many of you are flipping or pitching from your float tube. What is your technique, how do you do it. I am looking further into this and am wondering if anyone is already doing this. Thumbs Up

Flipping and pitching in and out of the reeds, weeds, or submerged trees is a favorite of mine, and the strong suit of a tubers approach. Tossing to specific targets I either use a backhanded sweeping motion or on the forehand, an exaggerated side arm. I hadn't really thought about it, but from the tube it is always a side to side movement for me. I am trying to hide from the target as well, so I am behind a tree or around "the corner" in  weeds or reeds.

Stealth is the tubers advantage.
I hope this helps.

Ya there are many different techniques for sure, but I am sure you could pitch or flip if you set yourself up right.

OK I do think it is possible to flip or pitch from your tube. Here is a video from wired 2 fish that explains the techniques used for both flipping and pitching. It will take some modifications and plenty of practice but hey we can do this I am sure of it.
