Shimano Solutions: Dock skipping with Zona

One of the most intriguing aspects about bass fishing is the vast array of techniques that can be employed to catch one. Perhaps that is one of the most attractive things about the sport in general, but figure how many ways there are to catch bass, then think about how many you actually use.

Why learn a new technique? Well, if you ever get into a situation where you need to catch a fish, whether it’s for fun or a tournament check, having an extra trick up your sleeve could be critical. Of all the effective methods out there, which one is the hardest to master? I’d be willing to bet that most anglers would agree that skipping a jig under docks or overhanging limbs might be the toughest.

It starts with the right rod, reel, line and jig combination, but getting some instruction from an accomplished dock skipper will put you on the path to catching good numbers of fish from those hard-to-reach areas.
