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.

Part 1, titled “The Heart of the Dock” and embedded below, demonstrates how each dock will have a particular spot underneath where the biggest crappies are likely to suspend, and how to spot access points in order to skip a bait underneath and reach the heart.
