    Second photo looks best . I like to spread out the stakes in each bucket . We cut buckets in half and makes them easier to spread . A half bucket is plenty of concrete for 8 to 10 good stakes . We just put dry quickcrete in the bucket and add water, then add stakes. No need to go to the trouble of premixing concrete . We place 6 to 12 to a spot . They are great and hardwood stakes last for years submerged . Also use a PVC stake driver to put in without concrete or buckets . Check out this on youtube .

    I wish we had spread them all out like the second photo. I will cut the buckets in half next time. Thanks for the tip.

    Where do you get the stakes for these?

    If you were asking me I was told they make hardwood floors from the boards. These are what is trimmed off the board to square them up. They have so many that they burn the trimmings. The guy I got them from said he uses them for crappie also. They were put out in Feb last year and we have yet to catch a fish off them. I did notice before I put them out it had rained in the buckets and the water looked tea colored so maybe that needed to leach out before fish would get on them. We put about 9 per pile and came back later and added 2 bamboo buckets per pile.

    It's disappointing the buckets are not holding fish. Likewise, I put out several bamboo condos last year and caught very few fish in them. Yet, my natural brush piles were loaded almost instantly. Fish can be trickier than women to figure out!!!

    I appreciate your response!

    I'm envious. I haven't had the results from pvc condos I made using the porcupine spheres that I placed in both of my boat slips.

    I know. I cut 2 decent size trees and sunk them the last of June and caught a fish off them after 2 weeks. I haven't given up on my buckets but if they don't produce this year I'm going back to sinking trees.

    FYI, cardboard boxes work great for making stake "buckets" I got that tip from Lowe175. I add fiberglass to my concrete so the stakes on the edges don't fall out or break out of the concrete. You wouldn't have to worry about that with buckets, but I got a bag of the fibers from the concrete place for a couple of dollars.
