has anyone ever created an artificial fishing spot?

Recommended Posts

im curious if anyone has ever created a fishing spot im thinking about trying this in a small lake near my house for local tournaments. i was thinking of using pallets making cubes out of them putting a cinder block in the center and dropping about 4-5 cubes in about 12- 15 ft of water.

either that or making spikes out of pvc i can get 20ft sticks threw a hardware store for around 3 bucks and i was going to wire 6 pieces together to make a 4 foot spike kind of thing

if i spent around 100 bucks i could make a whole artificial reef in 15 feet of water

any ideas?

i know you shouldnt pollute the water and just keep it natural but why do they have the bill dance spikes then? and pvc doesnt rot so it shouldnt harm the water correct?

a friend of mine told me that they dragged about 14 spruce tree's out in champlain near point au rouche and created a hedge row in 13 feet of water and he seems to win most tournaments in mid summer by flipping those tree's ( i wish i could find them lol )

Also, you can use milk creates...anything that doesn't pollute, and creates structure.

We own 3 Different Ponds, man made. the largest is Mainly stocked with bass the other 2 with bluegill and cats. What we did was drop roughly 280 Pine trees combined. In about 4 different sections in the bass pond. After 2 Years we noticed a lot of fish hanging around them so we added 2 more spots. We now constantly Catch and Release 3-8lbers. Which is quite large for Ohio to catch constantly.  Its always a great day fishing at them and use it as a "Confidence boost" after a bad day at the lake :D.. Anything that doesn't Pollute would be a great idea. Just make sure you want it there for sure, cause once they are there they are near impossible to remove.

making rock piles is also easy..you can just go to the shore and load the boat up with rocks and sink them where ever....the only problem is you have to sink a whole crap load of them to actually make a pile..

you can make them from 3 pallets like a triangle an if you wanna make em more hook proof you can rip down some pvc pipe and put it on the underside of the slates with some stainless screws or leave em off and every now an then dive down and collect lures :)

if you spent anytime on the water you would realize that one rock can hold bass....laugh all you want...keep laughing when your donating your money in tournaments to guys that build their own piles...of rocks, piles, or brush

if You have 2 cheat and build your own cover in secret little spots to TRY and beat me your not good. but the way you said that makes me think you have done it. Learn to fish the lake the way it was made. it dont matter to me id still out fish your little rock piles 4-1. WITHOUT MAKING MY OWN SPOTS!!!  :'( :'(

Wouldn't that be unfair to other competitors?  Ok for personal use I guess, but for a tournament I would call it cheating.

I always just tied to an already sunken tree or brush and dragged it where I wanted it. If it was a good spot i would build it like a wall of brush in a circle or triangle and sat in the middle and was able to reach all of it from one spot.

anyone can do it where its legal...its not against tournament rules...how is it cheating...the department of game and inland fisheries build reefs, rockpiles, brushpiles and several other types of cover...some of them are marked with fish attractor buoys, some arent...

If u havn't created any you dont know what you are missing out on, i have over 60 spots on t-bend and they all hold bass, the remarkable thing is how fast bass will be drawn to this cover, it does not take very long at all. I know several tourament fisherman on rayburn and they pound similiar spots like mine and really do well off of them. U would be suprised how many tourny fisherman do this and keep these spots top secret. U should absolutely do the same asap and u will have the exact same results. start sinkin and tell us how your luck changes, I would really like to know!! PS: FIND A SPOT THAT IS YOUR OWN AND DONT TELL ANYONE. And if anyone considers this cheating then half the fisherman on rayburn cheat. I believe is just like a artificial reef in the ocean, it provides cover, a food source, and when it comes down to it those bass wont hook themselves, you still have to be on your game and figure out the bite and then deliver. they wont just jump in your boat, I say go for it !!!

no, but i want to. get an old crappy table, drills some holes in the top. weight the legs, and pvc the edges. maybe make a false pvc tree stick up out of the middle of it.why wouldnt it work? you got the fake tree and a shelf for the fish to hide under.

Where do i find if it is legal?

And I would not consider it cheating, just an unfair playing field.

Jesus kid, I'm starting to believe your ego has it's own zip code.

Nothing wrong with creating your own structure. Personally, I'd go with pvc to make it relatively snag proof.
