Dock Fishing Made Easy - How To Catch EVERY Bass!

Tim uses a handful of baits but his method is very simple. He approaches docks from the outside in, and darkest shadows to lightest shadows. He also treats shadows and shadow edges the same way he does a piece of hard cover. 

By mixing finesse and reaction baits and fishing the key cover pieces, you will effectively reach every single fish under the dock. These tricks work!  Stop making the easy casts, catching the small fish, and scaring the big ones. Use these tips to immediately improve your catch rates.

How To Quickly Pick The BEST Docks To Fish

Ever wondered why some docks hold all the fish and others are a bassless wasteland? Tactical Bassin’ lets you in on all the secret strategies for picking the right docks this summer and picking them quickly. Break down an enormous row of docks this summer and don’t waste time fishing the docks that won’t hold the giant bass we are all after.

How to Catch Every Bass Under a Dock

In this video Tim explains what you need to do to catch as many fish as possible when fishing a dock. Instead of walking up and simply casting to the dock, take a tactical approach, work your angles and systematically catch all the fish.

Its amazing to us how many guys, especially from boats, will just make a random splash down cast into the middle of a dock then move on to the next one! Who came up with that idea?! Take 30 seconds out of your day, be systematic in your approach, and you will see immiediate results.

As the video begins Tim explains that the first step to dock fishing from shore is to approach the dock from the down shadow side. Meaning, don't let your shadow cross the dock, instead keep your shadow behind you. Next, start fishing the structure that is closest to shore and farthest from the center of the dock first. 

Slowly cast to each piling of the dock, shadow corner, or other structure. As you fish each piece of cover slowly work out to deeper water. This way any fish you catch will be pulled up into the shallows without crossing over the other fish.

The last cast should be to the very center and darkest part of the shadow under the dock. By the time you've reached this cast you should have caught every other fish under the dock. 

If you use this method for all of your dock fishing you're absolutely going to catch more bass! Whether you're bank fishing or standing on a bass boat this information applies to your fishing. If you happen to be on a boat simply fish the dock in reverse order to achieve the same result.
