how would you approach this spot

Recommended Posts

Snapped a quick picture of a spot i fished at briefly on Saturday. I caught my first topwater fish and got 4 other bites but didn't get a good set on em'. If you walked up on this spot what would you throw and where? Just trying to get some ideas because im going back there soon.

I would start with topwaters in the morning, then fish shakey heads, jigs, and crankbaits around those boat docks as the day went on. If the docks were high enough off the water, I would skip a senko back under the docks as well.

My favorite technique for fishing docks would be jigs. I'm almost gaurenteed a fish.

AM - Buzzbaits all around the docks.  Cloudy use black with silver blade.  Blue Bird skys use white or white/chartruse and gold blade.  Cavitrons are the best as you can retrieve them fast or slow.  Pop-R's in shad colors with black backs. Don't forget your frogs, too, for topwater action.

Pink trick worms fished on a light 1/0 straight shank hook all around and under the docks and all around the area.

Early AM - Senko under docks and especially to the back two corners near the shore.  Skip Senko under dock.  Watermealon, Green Pumpkin or Lemon are good colors.  Try Texas-rigged plastics and also the split shot technique.  The drop shot may also work if the bass are stubborn.

A fast moving Minus One ripped (like take your rod and pull back hard) can cause reaction strikes.  On the other hand, a wacky rigged Senko or a shaky head can also produce results.

During the Day - Senkos, Zoom finesse worms, crankbaits (to find any fish) by fishing them at different water levels (Minus One, 100 , 200, Deep Divers, etc.).  Spinnerbaits, Chatterbaits and a blue/black jig with a blue/black plastic or pork pig. Don't forget those trailer hooks on all baits that you can put a trailer hook.

Afternoon - Same as during the day on what the bass tell you they want.

Evening - Back to topwaters.

These are just suggestions.  Maybe a crawfish imitation will work. Or a Rat-L-Trap in red or chrome with blue or black back.

Try lots of lures and the fish will tell you what they want.

If all that fails, scale down to a Rooster Tail or a small white one inch grub on a 1/64 jig head fished weightless on light line.

And fish all over the shoreline, under and around the dock sand under and around the boathouses.

Good luck.

i would go with topwater early i prefer poprs. then i would go with a shakey head around the outside of the docks. once the sun got higher it would be jigs or creatures up under the docks if the water is deep enough or the docks are high enough off the water that you are comfortable with skipping. oh and dont leave out spinnerbaits parallel with the dock.
