Many thanks to my friends in the picture. They came all the way over to Kentucky Lake to help me put crappie beds in the lake when I was not able to do it myself. (Or should I say that they did all the work) Once again proves that crappie anglers are the best people in the world. From left to right, Fatboy, Cahutta, little Dillan, Crappie Hunter, and Cane Pole. Thanks guy's. Your the best!

that looks like a chain gang not a work release. You must be the straw boss since you ain't in the pick. You guys are great to work together like that.

I think I need to watch what I say to MR FB.

Say weezer I've got 55 buckets right now. You just fill them things up with gravel? What kind of water depth do you look for put them in and do they work year around? I need some info from a pro. I can get buckets all the time.

How come FB ain't smiling? :D Did someone forget to say cheese? :D

Thanks again Richard for the jigs and the sharing of the waypoints. Like I told you at the Mexican restaurant last night, kinda funny seeing two laptops and I said three, but it was four gps's laying around at Toms house. We are just a bunch of high tech rednecks. Thanks again for the hospitality and the memories. See you soon.

Hey Richard, where's all the bamboo for those buckets?

No bamboo. Just plain buckets filled with gravel. With-in a few months, the fish won't be able to tell the difference between the buckets or a stump. And we all know that fish hang out around stumps. Russ and I did a show putting out buckets. It was on all last week, but the online broad cast was down. You can get a copy of the show at crappiestuff.com or at midwestcrappie.com We put all of the buckets in 3 to 4 feet of water right on the top of a little ledge. Hopefully when they come in to spawn, they will hold a bunch of fish. We had a great time and it only took us around 2 hours to put out around 100 buckets. How many areas of your lake do you know there are 100 stumps? We will find out around the first of April how these buckets do.
Thanks again for all the help guy's.

Weezer, thanks for the picture. I now know what some of the posters look like. Being the mouthy type I don't think I'll pick a fight with FB. Cane Pole looks like a friend of mine. You guys look like a really good bunch. Wish I could have been there to help. Hope you didn't corupt Dillan.

What if you painted those buckets black? It would make them look more like a stump, harder for other people to see underwater & hold heat when the water is cold.

Good idea to make the buckets black as that would hold more heat IF the sun's light can get to the buckets. It depends on how deep they put the buckets and how clear or muddy the water will be. Richard said that algae will grow on the buckets so they can't be too deep. Although KY lake's water is pretty clear at times out on the main parts of the lake. Along the shorelines they could wave induced muddy water. And in the areas where streams run into the lake there can be muddy water too. Would regular spray paint stick to the plastic buckets though? Would you have to really degrease the buckets surface and prime the buckets to get paint to stick and say on the bucket?

I have seen some plastic buckets that were already black. I guess the plastic has black pigments in it when it's melted and formed into a bucket.

I am wondering if the crappie actually spawn INSIDE the bucket. If that material is the right texture and consistancy then that could be a posibilty.

The tractor is green, my dog's name is Blue,
And I'm so lucky to have a sweet thang like you.

Your hair is like cornsilk, a-flapping in the breeze,
Softer than Blue's and without all them fleas.

You move like the bass, which excite me in May,
You ain't got no scales, but I luv you anyway.

You have all yore teeth for which I am proud
I hold my head high when we're in a crowd.

On special occasions, when you shave yore armpits,
Well, I'm in hawg heaven, I'm plumb outta my wits.

Yore complexion, it's perfection, like the best vinyl siding.
Despite all the years, yore age it keeps hiding.

Some men they buy chocolate for Valentine's Day,
They git it at Wal-Mart, it's the romantic way.

I got you a gift, without taste nor odor,
Better than diamonds it's a new lawnmower!

Fish are like us. ( I keep saying this.) They gonna try to breed somwhere. I tried it in a Volkswagon long time ago. I guess the fish can try it in a bucket...

They said the buckets were in 3 or 4 feet of water so they should get some sunlight. I have started collecting buckets & I found a source today for some bamboo but I like this idea for shallow water. Thanks to everyone for sharing all the info on here. Do you fill the buckets completely to the top? Some in the pic looked full. Not sure about the paint sticking, need to do some research.

:confused:
Iambic pentameter is a meter in poetry, consisting of lines with five feet (hence "pentameter") in which the iamb is the dominant foot (hence "Iambic"). Iambic rhythms are quite easy to write in English and iambic pentameter is among the most common metrical forms in English poetry.

:( - If iamb is the dominant foot, what is the left and right ones?

I don't know if we got shots for it but I know we have medicine for it. Feller got caught in Charlotte yesterday with 80 gallons of it.
