    Well Nathen beore you build something remember that you have to sink it. If it's made from wood, you have to add alot of weight to sink it. Another problem is getting it out there. The only solution is having a small barge towed by your boat. I would love to sick some good structure. The main problem is getting it out there.

    Nat, you can easily use old concrete pipe or pieces of it. It creates an excellent spawning structure for catfish, and obviously they sink easily. You want to be sure to put them in areas that have fairly firm bottoms so that they do not become filled with silt.
