Skipping Docks

Recommended Posts

What size of Senko are you using?  Try a 6 or 7 inch senko or senko knockoff if you're using the shorter ones.

All soft plastics are sometimes productive around docks. If the water is generally shallow (<12') I usually fish a weightless presentation (Fat Ika or Senko). If it's deeper, T-rigged (Micro Munch Tackle El Gordo or Mizmo tube, Kut-Tail or Kreature).

Tube with 1/16 oz internal weight, bump up the weight if it's deeper than 3 feet.

Try a weightless Fluke rig it with a 5/0 hook. This should work if the water is clear to stained

What he said.  Although I prefer a 4/0 hook.  I've found this to work in 10feet or less of water.  If it's deeper than 10 I'll use a tube with a 1/2 to 3/4 oz  jig head.  If neither of these work, I'll try to pitch/flip a jig around the edges of the dock.

Watch this video it shows a young Shaw Grigsby rigging and using a Tube with an internal weight skipping under docks. Pretty awesome:

That's a pretty cool video. Hopefully I'll catch a big bass like some of those some day.

I know youll probably laugh,but try a flying lure in chartruese.It skips well and falls away from you on slack line.This alows you to fish way under the dock and keep the bait in the strike zone longer.The color choice is for visibility reasons as docks are shaded.As I have said before baits are tools,try and use the best tools for the job youre trying to do.

3x zero or Ztoo (fluke type)

lots of salt for weight and d**n near indestructable.

Fat Ika is great, too.

my favorite for skipping would be a 1/16 or 1/8 oz taco jighead with a strike king 3x trick worm superglued on.  I stands STRAIGHT up and the glue makes it so it doesnt slide down the hook at all.  hope this helps.  Also, the senko is a great skipping bait, so your problem may be that the docks you are fishing may just not hold big fish.  Look for the oldest docks you can find, and also, dont just fish under the dock, sometimes people throw things off the end of the dock, so back way off and throw at the end of the dock and bring it into deeper water.  I cant tell you how many times my size of the fish I was catching has increased as I backed off the dock
