    Yep!
    If you want a longer lasting BAITFISH AREA, also drop some soft "fruit wood" by it....the "sugars" not only attract baitfish but the entire lower levels of the food chain! You can add pallets and laydowns to provide cover and breeding areas, and keep the baitfish there!

    We set Baitfish Areas in the shallows close to feeding flats...then we have all of our regular cover close by, around drop-offs and other key areas, that will hold Crappie!
    This way the Crappie have no need to move far!

    Might as well be the one to tell you of my experiences....it is gonna take a lot of weight to get it down (A lot of air trapped in there), you can soak it for a couple days but then it is a PITA to drop it....I have only done it twice because of this!
    If you want it to last longer make sure to band it more, so it doesn't all fall apart as soon as it gets wet...I couldn't get enough wire so I used a bunch of my 250lb tie straps....then it degrades ALOT slower.

    Very Nice thought, using chicken wire!
    Once they get water logged they will sink....then your good!

    Now you have done it. I am going to have to check at my Co-op feed store and see if they have some alfalfa hay for sale. I have a question will this be considered baiting fish or is this considered to just be fishing habitat? I sure would not like to get a ticket for baiting fish.
    Be safe and good luck fishing
