    Default Christmas trees

    I have some access to some Christmas trees and planning to sink some in the next month.
    How many would you put to a spot?

    Some questions for yourself first!
    Is this your personal honey-hole or will others find and use it?
    How many areas do you want to be productive?
    How many fish are going to be able to use a single Christmas tree?
    In a few weeks when all the needles are gone and in 1-2 years when all the little branches are gone what will the pile look like?
    Look at the pics...Crappie like tight/safe cover they can be safe in.
    Look how they will hug bottom to get under trunks for shade.
    Look how many will pack into tight cover.
    Wood not only provides cover, as it degrades it provides food forbthe basic food chain.
    I only use wood in my personal honey-holes...I use plastic if there's a chance someone may find it.
    I pack areas with Christmas trees (15 to 20) standing up and laying down...I want alot of fish! And re-plant the area in 2 years.

    Ideally placing the "C" trees in rows shallow to deep and with longer lasting hardwood and/ or PVC attractors on the deep end tends to work extremely well.the shallow end "C" trees and/ or brush blocks laid on their side reduces snags. Yellow perch particularly use them for spawning. Would consider also sinking orange orange and/ or mulberry, ash, hickory, ect brush blocks for underwater longevity. Buck Creek and Ceasars Creek State Parks are both apparently preparing to add more of them...

    Do you guys burn the needle off the cedar before you sink it? I've been told this speeds up the process but wasn't sure if it's worth the extra work.
    I wanna feel the THUMP!

    NOPE!
    Just attach weight and drop.
    We have noticed fish immediately using freshly dropped Trees.

    Have a few spots i would like to drop a few rows of trees down in a stretch. Really didn't want to put in the extra work to remove the needles if I didn't have to... Thanks
