When fishing on or near a dock for bass consider the following tips:
- Fish on a dock that is surrounded by clear to moderately clear water.
- For fishing in front of the dock use topwater or spinnerbait.
- Fish on a sunny day.
- Fish on a dock that has bulrush patches or lily pads nearby.
- Summer time is the best time to fish on a dock.
Fishing for smallmouth bass in the grass can be a rewarding catch if a few simple tips are followed. If the line on your Shimano spinning fishing reel is getting hung up, then the grass is too thick for the bass. Try fishing in grass that is no taller than 3 feet and is surrounded by water that is at least 5 feet deep. Look for bare spots throughout the grassy area and then cast your favorite jerkbait in one of those spots.
If fishing from a boat, try to keep 15 feet away from your target area. Your goal is to catch the bass, not to spook them with your boat.
