    well i went and done it today. cut a few tall, bushy trees down, strapped em together, found a couple of big rocks, and sunk em NEXT to my favorite spot. i dont think anybody saw me do it so theyll be wonderin, how in the heck is he catchin em. hehe. i got a spot thats moderately productive and i put mine out about 15 ft farther out, and 5ft over from it. i dont have a depth finder, but i know where it is. it seems to be on a good drop from the shallows to the deeper water so well see in a couple of days how my super secret handy work has done.

    Jason, if you know someone who owns an apple or peach orchard, you're in brushpile heaven. Some types of trees take quite a while to attract fish, and other types of trees do it instantly. Peach and apple trees, along with other fruits such as nectarine, plum, and maybe mulberry contain a sap which attracts minnows instantly. See if you can talk to some folks who will be trimming their fruit trees this winter or early next spring and ask for the cuttings. You'll be glad you did. Pine trees and cedar trees are very popular, but they contain a sap plus pine needles repel fish until they break down. Good luck.

    I wouldn't expect much in just a couple of days,but in a couple of months they should be settled enough to attract some fish.

    If you used any cedar trees it will take some time before the greenery dies away and then it will work well.
