Hard to describe these, so with some help from some folks, a picture is worth a 1000 words.

Looks pretty cool.
Nice and spacious, plenty of real estate for the fish.

I personaly think it's one of the better condos that I have seen bar none. You have created a great stake bed, which in my opinion, tend to attract crappie better than most other cover in wide open areas. Great Job!

SIS, Looks great!!Hope It sinks for you. I started out building condos from old pallets[free &lots of em].My main problem with them was getting them off the boat without em flippin upside down!once we got them right sided had to add more blocks-evenly to sink them.Stupid things were like a floating barge!!ended up with 8 blocks on each one.LOL-to much work ,went to buckets&pvc.

Good looking attractor. Did it set upright when it came off the boat? I have used some like that in the past, but have changed over to pvc. Let us know how it works. Remember "if you build it, they will come, we will catch."

We have sunk over 300 of these in the last 7 years. If you look closely we have conveyor rollers on the front of the work boat. 2 of us shove it off as hard as we can and it hits the water pretty flat and stays that way. We only have 4 matts that stood on end. 2 of those appear to be right on the end of a ledge. 2 it just happened. But we still catch fish on them.
Compared to brush and other things that lay horizontal where you get hung, we rarely get hung on these because everything is vertical. We also can fish all the way to the bottom & up to 4 feet off the bottom as structure is there. I would dare say we have caught more fish on this structure since Oct 1st, than 95% of the fisherman out there. Not that we are good fisherman, we just put the work in.
