    I have sunk a few hollow logs, two christmas trees and quite a few cocrete blocks to helpw with my areas attractors. I think the pond is pretty bowl shapped and none discriptive underneither. Has anyone else done similar things to there fishing hole. Pond is only 3 - 4 acres big.

    In my opinion, wise catmen will build similar structures in key spots on lakes and reservoirs whenever possible to build your own "honeyhole".

    Catfishermen in the know will always do things a little different to put the odds in their favor. I'd say you done well. God bless.

    In the pond I used to fish in, we would sink all kinds of things. We would put trees down there and cement blocks in different locations. The fish would always hang out around the structure. I caught a 8 1/2 lb largemouth out of a pond, which is an awesome fish for southern wisconsin.

    Setting out habitat is favorite tactic of noodlers. They will sink a half drum or old tire and then go back and pull the catfish out. I haven't tried this my self, but I've read a lot about it.

    :confused:

    Whats with the half drum thing. I was thinking 1 & 1/2 drums for Flatheads one attached to the other open end. Just need to figure the best way to attach them with all ends open. On the old BOC there were directions for building a grapling box 4 ft wide x 6 ft long by 2 ft high, this would be ALOT smaller :confused:

    Can anybody set me strat please?
