Skipping lures under docks for bass fishing is certainly not a new technique.
FLW Pro Scott Martin demonstrates the art of skipping lures under docks to get a line on those big bronze backs that are lurking in the shadows. It is a bit of an art that combines the right gear with a finessed technique.
Those were some great pointers that involve a soft-action rod and nice low-memory line to skip lures off the surface and bounce them right where you want them, under the docks.
Every angler knows that big bass like to lurk under docks and ambush passing bait, but what we might not know is how to combine the right rod with line and a lure appropriate for getting the skip into the shadows.
A dock is likely where we all started out as kids fishing for pan-fish off the dock and it is neat that as adults we are fishing docks, but under them from boats and not off of them anymore, so its a nice connection back to our first angling memories.
