After you dissect the parts of the dock you can fish from the bank, then walk onto the dock as quiet as a Ninja. Instead of casting away from the dock, run your casts length-wise down both sides of the dock. It’s often this presentation that draws a strike from fish hovering below the boards. If you’re fishing a marina with boat slips, make multiple short pitches behind the boats and ropes that anglers on a bass boat cannot reach. Try dropping to the deeper and darker shadows, especially if you see a lot of crappies, bluegills, and other baitfish hanging around a certain nook or cranny. Mr. Bass is probably lurking nearby, so milk those areas. And last but not least, cast off the end of the dock—just not too far away. Many dock owners plant brush piles right off the terminal end of their docks. Dock furniture that gets blown off the end over the years also collects here. You may have to go by feel to detect them, but the sunken brush pile with a bonus lawn chair off the far right corner makes the perfect bass ambush spot.
