Video Transcript:  One of them old dock fish didn’t we? Not a very big one. It’s actually at the end of the stall rather than outside corners. I’d rather catch them on the outside corners but every now and then they sneak up inside them stalls too. You know, one thing a lot of people try to avoid my opinion is the cable systems  that you have around these docks whether it’s cables that are tied to the bank to the dock to the bank or the cables that are basically keeping the dock in place it’s unbelievable how much activity goes on around those cables. Fish will suspend because as those cables get older they get plankton and algae on them. The baitfish come up and feed on them and the bass just suspend right behind them. A bass, they can get behind a cable and they feel like they are  hiding from you. So I mean anytime you get around dock systems, don’t just through what the cables you can see visible up front but if they got tie down cables it’s a great place to fish a jerk bait especially in the spring when the fish are suspended; when they are just starting to move up and then when they start guarding fry it’s a good time to get after it again. Little bitty one… Little bitty guy…
