View Full Version : Proud new owner of a condo

Actually 12 to be exact. We put these together the night before last and I thought I would share. We varied our bamboo lengths quite a bit. Some condos we made really bushy, some we just used bare trunks. We are going to number each one, take a picture of each one, and save their GPS coordinates so that we can tell which, if any are, producing better than others. It amazes me how crappie will stack up on stake beds where you and I might not think there is much cover but the crappie like it. If the bare trunks produce just as well then they would be the ticket because they are much easier to transport.

Keep us posted. I just found a large supply of nice bamboo and have permission to take what I need.

Thanks for the post.

I know Lady Ann Lake. I used to live in the apartments there. I never really fished it and its only open to members/tenants.

WEll I have access and plan on coming up and placing some of my condo's. My mother lives there and works for Colonial. I GOT THE HOOKUP. Only thing is it's 120 acres and I have no clue (as well as apparently everyone else around there) about the depth, etc. Looking to hook up with someone to help me and then we fish it 2-3 times a year during the spring.

Hey Tuffy.

If I were u I would remove alot of those limbs. I made mine like your at first and got snagged alot. Like you said about the trunks, I switched mainly to those last year and they work just as well and you get hung less...Just my 2 cents.

Thanks for the advice, I'll keep that in mind on my next batch I make. Not having all that foliage sure would make the short ride to drop easier. If you ever put some out like mine above you know what I mean.

BTW I haven't heard of the lake you are talkig about, but then again I haven't been living in H-sville that long either.

Those look good. I love making attractors, it is quite rewarding, especially when you catch a mess of fish off them.
