    Default Dock

    My parents gated community has a community dock with lights. It has little to no structure at all around it. The water is 8ft deep under it but about 40 yards or so in front it's around 20 ft deep. We catch a pretty good amount of crappie from the dock at night during the winter and early spring but we have to throw as far as we can from the dock. I would like opinions on putting bamboo under the dock. How tall?

    I am also going to put some bamboo in the 20 fow also that is about 8-10 ft tall.

    I have talked to many locals and older gentlemen and they say the lake doesn't have near the structure as it did in the 80's and 90's.

    Would anyone ever swim or dive from that dock? Itd be a bad deal if a kid jumped in on top of whatever you put in.

    No they do not. They have a designated swimming area away from the dock. The community board members use to place Christmas trees but they quit several years ago and now the fish quality has went down.

    I am really talking about straight under the dock. Not beside the dock. The dock is 8ft wide and about 80-100ft long.

    if may 'suggest' try using a mixture of both hardwood branches (osage orange, mulberry, locust, ect) and PVC. stuff cement blocks with branches with all the cut ends together, the branches on 1 side going 1 way and opposite on the other and secure them with going around each side tied off and then going to the opposite diagional end and again tying off. these will go in shallow water. for deeper water use 5 gallon buckets with holes drilled at 90 degree angles at the bottom of each bucket and insert 3' pieces of PVC, this will help keep them upright. cement both the hard wood branches and PVC into them. finally in the deepest water use just PVC tubing . this creates a path for the fish to use all year long, shallow to deep... feel free to use cedar trees/ shrubs in place of the Christmas trees.
