Rusto, dock is really looking good. Mine is also sown close to the water's surface. A bonus to being so close to the water is that you, kids, your inquisitive dog can be right there when the bluegills are feeding.
I like to show the neighbor kids how to quietly and carefully reach down and touch the fish slurping pellets and mealworms. Also, it's a hoot when a 20" tiger trout slashes by and showers the kids with water!
