Dock Fishing Essentials

Wed, October 20, 2021

As water temperatures go down, fish migrate under docks where the water is a little warmer, so any angler looking to catch bass in the fall and spring should know how to fish a dock. Pete has the three kinds of bait that he has confidence in when he's skipping docks and they are a buzzbait, a tube, and a swim jig. Anything that gives your bait a good profile to skim across the water will work, but Pete recommends these three. Try these out! You might find Pete's essential dock skipping baits match yours.
