I am sinking trees in my pond for structure. I have put concert blocks and poured concert around the bottowm to make them sink and stand up straight. The always fall over. How can I get them to stand up straignt?

Why do they have to stand up straight? Fish will gravitate to them because they are there, not how they look. Be sure to mark where you drop 'em and (if possible) which way they lay.
Fishin's easy - all you have to do is the right thing, at the right time, in the right place, in the right way

You can tie a plastic bottle in the top. Lid facing down.

Make sure the ornaments are evenly distributed and to unplug the Christmas lights. Lots of times the cord gets tangled on the dock or other timber causing the tree to fall over. For a tree topper, I prefer a star over an angel. Angels aren't native to water and a star can resemble a starfish or crayfish. Also rather than using garland, thread popcorn onto a string. Works great attracting bait fish. Merry Christmas :xmasicon_mrgreen:
Is "basstiality" the same as sleeping with the fishes?

They're easier to fish if they're laying down and you know what direction they're facing. That way you can pull the bait with the grain instead of against it, you're less likely to hang up that way.

Nice LOL !!!

I prefer sky hooks and leave them in place until the tree begins to saturate and stand on it's own.

I personally like 00's bucket trees, they are very effective and hard to get snagged on.
Fishing is my idea of a good lip piercing!

I have also found that when it comes to friends, a good friend will come and bail you out of jail, but best friends will be right there beside you saying d**n that was fun !!!

Don't matter what you do to make them upright because they're not going to last too long.

i would assume you guys know the depth of what you put these into, so here is my main question.. how would a shore angler know what depth they are casting to?I am a pond fisherman and I have always wondered how a shore angler would go about getting a very accurate depth reading from shore.

Get a jig and count it down in a body of water you kow the depth of(swiming pool) Easiest way is to find one combo that falls 1 foot per second. Then count it down as you cast it out!

One of the ponds is not diveable whatsoever, the bass have parasites in their mouths, I am not willing to bet that they dont like human flesh.. Now the other ones I have caught the 9 and 8 lbers out of is a possibilty. it has been getting a bit merky though. what about a countdown rapala with the hooks either removed or covered completely?
