    What if you troll with one rod? What do you call that?

    To me, it’s pretty straightforward: “casting” means I’m casting a bait over a horizontal distance. IMO, if you’re not doing that, you’re not “casting”, regardless of how many rods you’re using.

    What I read into what people are saying when they refer to "single poling" is they're not Spider Rigging, Pushing, Pulling, or Longline Trolling with multiple rods ... sort of "distinguishing" themselves as being more "sporting" than the people that do use multiple rods at the same time. Then there's the one's that "two pole" fish, one rod in each hand (usually vertical jigging).

    In any event ... all these descriptions are simply a way to distinguish between fishing methods & presentations.

    Not an issue here in Minnesota, all you get is one line and one lure except on the ice and then you get two lures whether both on one line or on two lines is optional.

    My reason for asking a prominent fisherman in our area has been saying catching them single poling and casting. One trip he said all caught single pole and none caught casting. I always just thought using one pole no matter what technique was single poling.

    In that case, I believe what he's differentiating between is casting vs vertical jigging.

    Another thing you might want to look out for is people saying they were "flipping" for Crappie ... usually those using Livescope. They don't necessarily "cast" to the fish they see on the screen, but use a long rod and swing their baits out. They're basically using the terminology that Bass anglers have used for decades in describing how they "flip" their baits, rather than actually "cast" them.
    Thanks Damion Kidd thanked you for this post

    No, Pitching is holding the bait in one hand and pushing it forward at the same time you lift the rod upwards to propel the bait towards the target spot. Flipping is pulling out line with one hand and swinging the bait forward with the upward lift of the rod, then releasing the hand held line to allow the bait to propel forward.

    Pitching is normally done with the reel in free spool, while Flipping is done with the reel engaged & a measured amount of line already pulled out of the reel.

    I suppose one could refer to what my buddies & I are doing as either one ... but it's more closely associated with the Flipping technique because we're not holding the baits in our hands before launching it forward. We are pulling out line with the off hand, but leaving the bail open ... for extra distance, when needed, and to allow the baits to fall on slack line when necessary. So, what we're doing is not "exactly" Flipping, in the Bass fishing sense, but just a borrowed terminology for a similar technique.
