If you’re targeting bass on docks and struggling to get bit on a jig, stick bait or even banging posts with a crankbait, it’s time to tie on an underspin jig and swimbait combo. This finesse horizontal presentation does an excellent job mimicking forage like shad and herring while having the drawing power of a spinnerbait and swimbait combined.

MLF pro Greg Vinson discusses the importance of casting angles with underspins. Long casts made parallel to docks while focusing on the shady side are best, while repeated casts to key areas such as dock corners also increase your bite chances. Vinson constantly experiments with blade sizes and colors, retrieve speed and plastic profiles based on water temperature.
