Docks aren’t equal when it comes to holding bass, but as Jason Christie notes, common sense coupled with forward-looking sonar like Garmin Panoptix is a fast way to identify the best ones.

Christie shares his top tip for quickly assessing productive docks using nothing more than his eyes. Generally speaking, isolated docks hold more bass than those in concentrated runs. It then boils down to what lies underneath and that’s where Panoptix comes into play. Many property owners sink brush and other cover, often in tough to reach areas — Panoptix helps locate these hidden gems so you can get a bait where it counts.
