In this on the water bass fishing class video, Pete Gluszek is on the water with a handful of techniques to break down docks and identify what the bass are biting in an attempt to establish a pattern. Pete starts off by breaking down the tools that he uses to pick apart docks and why you need a variety of baits and presentations. Then he begins working his away around docks, identifying targets, demonstrating various casts to get into the fishy places, and catching some fish. Learn from Pete as he changes techniques and makes adjustments to determine if he's on the bite, or if the bass are keying in on different baits. Watch as The Dean gets better casting angles, makes different cast, and different presentations to get bites from around dock pilings.
