Favorite Dock Fish Or Piling Bait/technique

Recommended Posts

I would say my favorite is a wacky rigged senko. I'll throw it on a medium fast action spinning rod and skip it into the pilings and under the docks. Its just plain fun. Not the fastest way to fish so I try not to do it unless I was catching fish earlier in the day on those same docks on moving baits near the top of the water column. If the fish are near the bottom I don't waste my time.

X2 on the wacky senko or a shakyhead trick worm.

First time around the bridge, I like a square bill or yoyo a rattle trap

March thru May, and from 1' - 25' I'll take a Zoom Green Pumkin Lizzard, dip the tail, and then hang on.

Super Flukes, Senkos, and Grandebass Rattlesnakes. I've also recently been experimenting with 12-inch worms, and have had some good fish take them down into the confines of the dock. Haven't gotten a hookup on them yet though.

Weightless senko or weightless fluke are my best producers on docks. Occasionally I'll throw a jig but prefer to throw the weightless stuff.

Yup another vote for weightless wacky senko here as well.

Drop shot all the pilings, cast to the corner posts on docks if you need to fish fast, and skip a jig up under it if they aren't holding near the edges. The difference between having the drop shot land 2 feet from the post and 2 inches from the post can be shocking in terms of how many bites you will get.

A jig for around docks.

 

For something like a bridge piling I like a jigging spoon or, as much as I hate fishing them, a dropshot.

Its been a couple of decades since I've been to Lake of the Ozarks  and do some serious dock fishing. I bet what i had success with then would still work today. A blue Manns Jelly worm  fished on all sides and underneath was highly effective .

For docks, I prefer a jig if here holding by the pilings and skipping a tube uder the dock. For bridge pilings, nothing beats banging a crank into them and their bases.

It's interesting how many people have said they fish reaction baits on bridge pilings. I always pitch a jig or T-rig right up to the concrete and let it fall vertically. Maybe I'll have to try cranks sometime

For pilings tube/drop shot and rattle trap.

 

For docks I like to stay away from the obvious senko or jig most of the time so I like crashing a big old worm (8 or 10 inch) down hard n' fast with a 1/2 to 3/4 tungsten weight on a big flippin' hook. If not a jig or senko work great!

Love to skip jigs or throw a square bill in the spring, up here there's so much weeds it's hard to use a crank in the summer/fall. I like the pit boss on a 1/2 oz.the jig I'll flip and skip and then swim back

I like skipping all sorts if baits under docks: flukes, senkos, tubes, floating worms, jigs, and even soft swimbaits
