i took concrete blocks and poured concrete in them the stuffed each hole with as much cane is i could. theyre all about 8ft tall and 4 ft diameter with the leaves and limbs still attached. they sunk perfectly straight up and down
Gutpile, I have had some experience with the "crappie condos" and the crappie will come to them FAST! You should be good to go! these are the best crappie piles you can sink, the only problem with them is they will rot in a year or 2, you just have to drop more every so often. I am surprised Mr. Nimrod himself hasnt added anything on this post yet?
These are three I built last week. I made them short because they'll be in shallower water. Must of it is gum saplings. The only problem using these is that it will grab your hook a little better than bamboo. But I hope they will last longer as these are going into some good current in a river.
