You found the only 10 foot hump in the 19 foot deep area for at least 50 acres on either side, lol. One of Murphy's laws I would imagine. Did you sink the rest of the condo's with the same result?

This may seem silly but Why not just trim some off the top. No one will ever know.

Maybe you have to much bamboo in each bucket ? It's acting like a big cork and won't let it sink all the way or your depth finder is not reading right .

I dont know what kind of finder you have but you may have an echo on your sonar. Try adjusting you sensitivity. You may only be in 10' of water.

Possibly landed in the top of a brushpile or some other type of structure. I usually fish around an area a few minutes to make sure I'm not placing my condos on top of someone elses. just a thought.:)

I built a few 15 fters and the bucket wouldnt hold another bamboo. They all parachuted to the bottom with no trouble. Most of the buckets didnt even have quickrete all the way to the top either...maybe 4 inches or so from the top. Drop a rope with a weight to the bottom at the condo and measure the depth to see if your sonar is working right.
