Docks (Saltwater)


Fishing the Docks is a great way to catch fish inshore. Most anglers target snook, sheepshead and jack crevalle around the docks, but it is not uncommon to find redfish and flounder around the docks as well. Most of the popular salwater fishing destinations are built up enough that you should be able to find some docks to fish if that’s what you want to do. The easiest way to fish the docks is to use a drop-shot rig with a live shrimp. Most anglers don’t fish the drop-shot rig in saltwater, but they are really missing out. This rig allows you to keep your bait a foot or two above the bottom, which is usually just enough to prevent the trash fish (catfish, blowfish, etc.) from biting your bait.
