I dont flip the crank, but i'll pitch a speed trap or a bds into the tulles and brush, heavy laydowns, same with a chatter.
Concerning regular flipping I also like a heavier weight 3/8, 1/2, 3/4 most of the time. Can cover water and I get more bites on the fall it seems. During the spring I will go lighter if the wind allows though. Around the real thick stuff though I use 3/4 and up stuff and get most of my bites on the fall, occasionally a few on the bounce on the bottom.
