Anyone Put Out Your Own Structure?

Recommended Posts

Preferences on types? Trees? PVC? Locations? Have put some stuff out for crappie, have yet to bass fish it though. Thoughts?

Use to collect Christmas Trees, weigh them down with cinder blocks, tie a burlap bag of dog food, to attach bait fish, on them and sink them on the second drop offs from shore. Caught a lot of fish of of them before moving away from the area.

i ive had better luck with buliding structure the way a friend told me.

what you need.

1- 5 gallon bucket

1- bag on concrete

50-100 sticks of bamboo

all you do is stick the bamboo in the bucket and spread it out all kinds of different ways. pour concrete in bucket and let it dry. use whatever lengths of bamboo you want to use depending on the depth of the water. this has produce some nice bass structure in my pond. caught my pb off the one i made. catch alot of crappie around them in the winter time as well. hope this helps. if you would like me to send you a picture of the way it looks i will be glad to. gonna make 2 of them in the next few days.

Yea, I took a dragline to the lake and added some structure lol..

No, I've never added cover of any kind to a lake or pond. Or structure, actually.

GoTakeANap is on point 100%.

I wanted to try the "sputnik" DIY structures using PVC and bowling balls, but after asking neighbors the idea was turned down because it wasn't natural. Since then I've been adding rock piles and broken cinder blocks near our docks and plan to use natural non plastic sources this fall. Our lake bottom is a muck mix of leaves and mud.

'Round here, those are not natural and some folks get VERY defensive about what goes into our water. I know PVC and other sources won't leach chemicals fluke but these guys still fish with real worms on walleye harnesses. I wish I could drop a dozen of those into my lake but I won't upset good people over these.

Lots of people put out cover for fish in our lakes. Technically it is not legal unless one gets a permit from the Corp of Engineers.

I don't do it. I just use my structure scan and record the channels then go back and mark waypoints on brush, rock piles, and laydowns.

I put out these pvc "sputnik" style attractors as well as the pallet pyramids you can see in the back.

Cedar trees with cinder blocks tied to the end. We sunk them off the edge of our boat dock from about 15-20ft of water (at full pool) and it was Crappie heaven.
