PARK FALLS, WI – It’s no secret that bass love docks. From everyday anglers to professionals, bass-heads learn to look for these manmade structures as prime target for green and brown backs. And while countless bass anglers grew up luring bass from the shadows of these platforms, they’ve never had the perfect tool for the task. Enter St. Croix’s Mojo Bass Dock Sniper (MJC70HF), a specialty bass rod that’s built for extreme accuracy, as well as the muscles to bring fish back to the boat.
The 7’, heavy power, fast-action rod shoots for precision, as accuracy is requisite to hitting sweet spots. The Mojo Bass Dock Sniper’s fast-action tip allows gentle, precise placement of baits, while its heavy backbone gives you the lifting power to hoist bass away from underwater brush piles, cables and ladders that threaten to snag your catch.
Dock fishing is often a close-quarters combat situation with limited visibility and maximum mystery. As winter weather begins to warm waters across the country, bass gravitate to these manmade habitats, whose shallow water real estate and attached, heat-absorbing watercraft serve as a veritable underwater lair. There, bass will soak in heat, warming their winter bones while gorging themselves on the bounty of sunfish, baitfish and other waterlife that also call docks home.

“The Mojo Bass Dock Sniper is really a multi-tool,” says St. Croix’s Dan Johnston, who recently put the rod to the test in the legendary wooded-waters of Tennessee’s Reelfoot Lake. “It can be skipped, casted or pitched. You can present almost any 1/2 ounce to ¾-ounce bass bait. They’re right in this rod’s wheelhouse.
“It’s a great rod for big spinnerbaits. You can pitch them around cover when you’re in a confined space like around a boat dock. The Mojo Bass Dock Sniper has a tremendous amount of power, too, and it maneuvers so well in tight quarters. Without question, it’s a must-have for bass anglers wanting to throw big baits around obstructions and cover.”
