In my bass tournament experience I have caught big bass and won money fishing under cottage docks and boathouses! Bot all docks hold quality fish and at times no fish at all. There is a few key factors that I look for when approaching a new dock.
*Boat houses are great fish factories as well*
Below are 5 tips to to ensure your success when approaching new docks.
- Water depth under end of the dock is key. Too shallow and those big bass won't have room to hunt. Too deep with no bottom structure for the bait fish to hang means no bass around looking.
- Type of dock and how busy is it. Some docks are much easier to fish then others. Does it appear like children are always playing around the dock area? If so chances are the big bass will not be sticking around that dock.
