This Is The Best Weedless Jighead For Dock Fishing
I recently came across a super effective weedless jighead for dock fishing!
When fishing around dock pilings, it is essential to avoid snags that can lead to lost gear and lost fish.
Weedless jigheads are a way for you to safely fish docks without worrying about losing tackle.
Find out what this jighead is in the video below!!

If you are out fishing a new dock line or you’re fishing a familiar dock with structure you are aware of, then it is only to your benefit to use a weedless jighead.
My favorite setup for weedless dock fishing is the Slam Shady 2.0 paddletail rigged on the Z-Man Weedless Eye Jighead.
This rig skips well under docks and triggers plenty of strikes.
Most importantly, this rig does not snag nearly as much as an open-hook jighead.
I typically use this jighead the first time I fish a new line of docks, and I then will switch to an exposed hook point jighead to fish those docks later after knowing which ones do and don’t have snags under them.
Moreover, the hookup ratio is not as great as other jigheads, however, the number of snags you will avoid is well worth it.
Additionally, you can get a lot more aggressive with your casts and placement with weedless setups.
There is a small barb on the Z-Man Weedless Eye Jigheads that prevent snags.
When a fish bites down on your lure, the barb opens and the hook point is exposed to bury inside the fish’s mouth.
Once you reel that fish in and release it, all you have to do is simply slide the barb back underneath the hook point and you’re ready to fish a weedless rig again.
If you haven’t picked any of these jigheads up yet, I highly recommend you do.
They are excellent not only for docks but also great for fishing in areas with thick clumps of floating grass.
Docks are advantageous fishing spots all year round but especially in the summertime!!
