Thanks Bud.

http://www.porcupine...com/pricing.htm Here is their pricing list for those interested.

fishinfiend,
Good luck. After reviewing the prices of the porcupine, I may just purchase a set of 3 of the spheres @ $46.85 total. Not bad.


WTRDOG, you often throw fishing lures around swimming areas? Guessing those hooks may be even worse than these fish attractors. Personally I don't fish in areas people swim in and certainly wouldn't put something like this where people could get hurt on it.

wow thats nice!!! Thanks



No problem; I know it may look hard to build but it's not hard at all. The center will be the hardest thing to drill out but you really don't have to make it like that. Start sketching it out and you'll come up with something easier I'm sure.

The easiest thing to do is to do what five.bass.limit suggested but you run the risk of snags with actual trees.


**edit** here's a photo of a rather simple design for that PVC tree. As someone else suggested, probably should find out if it's legal to use this. Looks like a 5 gallon paint bucket with cement in bottom. Insert PVC at angles while cement is still curing. Couple or three of these and it should simulate a stump field.

Good luck either way.


Man, I love the look of these.  I googled build your own porcupine fish attractors and this came up and it's the alternative to buying a kit I was looking for.

I've got a few christmas trees from the last couple of years in the lake behind my house.  10 or 15 foot from the shoreline the lake drops to some unknown depth.  Probably 30 foot or so, though supposedly it's 60.  Few CBS blocks some chain or rope and the tree.  Done.  Works pretty good too.

I would just cut off a decent sized branch with a chainsaw. There is many many ways to make some cover, and I think a big branch or something would be easiest, plus it doesnt cost you anything.

I really like the bucket bushes.

Grease up the inside of the bucket, arrange your tubes, and when the concrete hardens, pop it out.

Two things come to mind.

Unless I'm mistaken the pvc tubing (usually used between the pump and the connector on well casings) is cheaper per foot than the straight piping.

If so, I'd use the coil tubing.  They are also curved, and in combination with the straight tubes, you could really make a fairly dense cover.

The second thing is that it seems if the surface of the pipe was roughed up with a sanding disc and coarse sandpaper, the result would provide for an even denser algae growth.

For sure, for sure, I'm going to make a half dozen or so of them.  I have the perfect place in mind to "plant" them.

one thing we've done before that's cheap easy and usually free is get 3 pallets make them into  a triangle weight and sink.  now you can get caught  up with crank baits but you can avoid some of that with some pvc cut and placed over the slats. another option is making a structure from PVC and filling with concrete  and yet another way is some empty blue barrels cut various holes  and sink and weight down most of this stuff is a good summer project when ya can get in the water to get it just right BE CAREFUL!!!!

as most of yall probly allredy know this but the south east has had bad summers with no rain for the last (feels like forever)5 years.this caused the lakes around me to drop relly low. i live on badin lake and i can remember it droped as low as 15 foot one year. but anyways me and my familly would spend are days after work and school walking the dryed up lake beds exploring.Me and my dad would stack all the big rocks to form pyremids about 4'-6' tall.then the water would come back up we would have more under water cover for the fish. we still can see them with the depth finder 8-) thay are under about 12' of water now. allso the game commission will collect christmas trees and sink them to the bottom.

So this is legal in NC? - I was told it wasnt on Lake Wiley.

Game wardens also drop this stuff? Didnt know that.

All good ideas!  I would suggest, based on the depth of the canal, that you use caution placing anything in an area where it might hinder boat traffic.

Also, cover does not have to always be vertical (up & down).  Again, given the depth I would consider making the cover more horizontal.

Made these a few weeks ago for my pond. Will be making more. Super easy to make (kids helped) and they're proven in the water.

Copper wire? People are getting electricuted, falling thru roofs and going to jail trying to steal this stuff. Are you trying to add drowning to the list? ;D
