Grass and dock posts are a strong combination

Isolated dock posts hold bass. Grass definitely holds big bass. So when you add the two together, you’re talking about the potential for your biggest bass of the year. I get excited anytime I see grass littered around dock posts. 

Whenever you run across this combination, a well-placed topwater bait can do a lot of damage in short order. I like using some sort of soft-plastic toad or popper in these areas. The bass will let you know quickly whether or not they’re in the area. More times than not, you’ll get a bite within the first two or three casts. 

The next time you’re fishing boat docks, try to get a bit more specific and spend some time finding these specific targets. This strategy can really set you apart from a lake full of bank-beaters if you’re patient enough.
