Crappies love docks–especially during fall and winter. But how do you reach them when they’re tucked way up underneath? You have to “shoot” the dock, which involves skipping a small, soft-plastic jig deep underneath the dock. But floating docks present a special challenge. This multi-part video series covers all aspects of dock-shooting.
You’ll need the right type of rod to effectively shoot docks, and reel, line and bait choices are also important. Part 2 of this series, titled “Tackle & Mechanics”, covers tackle selection and also reveals the mechanics of dock shooting–how to hold your rod, your bait and more.
