This is a video of me on my home lake Bass fishing!! Please HELP me reach my goal of 1000 subscribers by 2020!! 

Also: What are everyones thoughts on dock fishing? I know a lot of people who think it is perfectly fine and then others who hate it. I believe that as long as we arent hitting your dock or doing anything wrong it is totally fine!! But maybe that's just me, whats your thought?

Wisconsin had a program called FishSticks. Don’t know if it’s still current but it wasn’t that long ago. The program was for more fish habitat in the lakes. For example, I could chop a tree into the water, but must chain Trunk of tree to my property. I actually have a great tree to do this with but would go to DNR first, and talk to Lake association to see if everything is still a go. I’m might try this year or next.

It would be nice if people would put other structures in. In most lakes if a tree falls it must be taken out. Cannot have that on a 500,000 lot! The docks are only game left to fish. I do leave dock when owner comes out. A long 10' pole lets me jig between dock and boat. Anchor ropes make things more interesting!

Yes dock fishing is great. Spot lock has made it better!

Yea Prop, What I’m worried about is the canvas covers when the lure is snapped back but now suddenly hooked into my fabric! It seems pretty stupid to me to be casting a sharp hook or hooks near my covers. I know people try, but some get a little sloppy. It ends up costing me money to park my boats at my pier!!! Lol

It’s pretty simple. Just don’t hit my pontoon or fishing boat! If you do, we got problems and Im definitely going to confront the caster. Other than that, fish on.

I was always under the impression that the dock   and 3 ft on the to land was not trespassing.  Iv'e taken many hooks out of ropes/chains and cross beams on the pier.  only 1 person made a big deal out of it in 44 years of bass fishing. he called the police and gave the boat id #  got a call an hour later, still fishin and the officer said it wasn't trespassing but not a good idea to do.

Well, if there are fish under them or around them on a given day, I'll fish them. Pretty simple. If the fish are elsewhere, I go there instead. Every lake is different for fishing docks based on the time of year and type of lake. For spring crappies on a lake I fish, I generally like boat lifts much better, but mid-late summer both can produce really well if they are settled on a steep drop into deep water. Bottom line is they can produce well for alot of species throughout the year, that's why people fish them.

Too many other good areas to fish, why fish under a dock?  Sure there are fish under that dock, but there's also fish all over the lake!  I've fished off docks but that's different.  When in a boat you have access to the entire lake, why not use it?

I do not like doing it,but it is sitting on public water though.

Yup, love dock fishing for bass. Though being as spring is nearly here I'm already getting excited about ice out slab crappies off the docks in the shallows. It's almost here.

Someone has thousands of dollars invested into that dock your bouncing that $8 lure off of. Each time you hit it there will be a mark of some sort on you lure and on their dock. You can bet they also have over a hundred thousand dollars invested into buying the property the dock connects to. The owner, the owners children and the owners grand children may swim off the dock that may end up with your hooks in their feet should you loose any in the area, which I have and thats when I figured out how inconsiderate it is to skip lures around docks. I haven't even gone into the yacht that may be attached to the dock.
