2013 Elite Series West Point Lake Battle West Point Lake - LaGrange, GA, May 2 - 5, 2013

Dock skipping

12:43 pm EDT, May 5, 2013 | By Steve Wright

We've been watching Hank Cherry demonstrate the fine art of skipping a lure under boat docks. James Overstreet, who has a lot more experience watching Elite Series anglers than I do, thinks Cherry ranks among the best he's seen.

 

There's not much air space under some of these floating docks, but Cherry can skip a jig from the front to the back of every dock he targets.

 

While the technique has been top-rank, the results have been nada. Cherry seems to be as relaxed as anyone can be in this situation, but you know he's feeling pressure.

 

It's one thing to need a big one to top off a limit. But Cherry has the big one, and can't find anymore keepers.
