Fishing Forage

Recommended Posts

Guest bigtex

   I have a pond that needs some type of cover in it.  Their is nothing in it to protect the bait fish.  Does anyone have suggestions on what I can use.  Here is a list that I have come up with so far.

1.)  Brush tops

2.)  Cedar tree top

3.)  tree that can be laid down half way in the water

I sure could use all the suggestions I get.  Thanks

This is the primetime to look for old Christmas trees people have thrown out, tie a cinder block; or in my case a piston head from a MAC truck ;); to em and toss em around vital areas like spawining coves, drop-offs, and points. Also be sure to mark them so you know where they are.

This is going to sound strange but...put down a couple plastic lawn chairs. You know the kind that you can adjust the foot and head rest. It has the plastic tubing most people use them to sun tan on. #1 reason it will not rot #2 it will not scum up #3 you can set it on the side and position it in weird irregular shapes #4 If you set it on the side it is hard to see with a depth finder. ;)

Also it is hard to hang a bait on it and baitfish love it. :)

Chris rocks!

Is there anywhere else you could get an idea like that, but here at BassResource.com.?

Where in the world did you come up with that?

Too cool.

Another idea is to take 3 old tires, stand them up and make a triangle. Wire them together and drill some small holes in them to let the air out, no matter which way they hit bottom you have automatic cover.

Something else you can do is to bring you a rope and tie off on already dead stuff in the water. You drag it to the spot that you want and make a triangle with it with piles of brush. You can sit in the middle and hit every inch of it. Your sweet spots will be the corners. Source: Jim Bitter (Club tactic)
