I Just Ran Accross A Stand Of Bamboo And Got The Okay To Cut It. My Question Is It Better To Sink It Green Or Let It Dry Out. I Never Done Bamboo Before... This Stuff Is About The Size Of Your Little Finger????

Green. get it in the water as soon as possible, with the leaves on it if possible.

If it's big size stalks you may want to even drill a few holes in it, but if skinny stalks then just use a lot. Make sure to use enough concrete. My first 5 all turned over after one storm only a few days after I put them out. I did catch crappie off one of them the very next day.

I usely use buckets full of rock off the highway not concrete and don't have a problem tiping over as i put two angle lrons cross ways in the bottom of the bucket. Angle iron from mattress company trash so I'm a dumpster diver

Be keerful diving into the boo patch right now Rich, I don't know how they are up yonder... but the chiggers will eat you alive down here right not if you step foot in the boo patch. I like to wait until after the first frost to cut the boo, also lots less traffic on the water too!

So far not a problem as the owner cut it down and tied it in big round bundles. hauling it in my SUV was still a mess but I used it like a truck..
