Fishing boat docks is one of the most consistent patterns for bass anywhere, but like any good spot, having a solid location and presentation game plan improves success. In this video, Jimmy Mason heads out on Lake Guntersville and shares his method to patterning dock bass by making accurate casts/skips to choice spots with Texas-rigged creature baits.
Mason’s strategy lays out as follows:
- Establish a pattern. Fish the entire dock first to determine where bass are positioned. Make a location note when you catch a few, then focus on these high-percentage spots on other docks (run a pattern).
- Casting/Skipping vertical baits. Start out by skipping baits deep underneath the docks to give the bass more opportunity to encounter the bait. Texas-rigged creature baits are Mason’s confidence bait – they skip well and get bit.
