    As an avid brush fishermen, I constantly add limbs to existing piles, or create new habitat to enhance my ability to be successful. I have over 500 piles in water depths of a few feet to over 30. This is done to keep me on fish year round. The issue of the “blind hog finding an acorn every once in a while” meaning a random fishermen lucking into finding one of my brush isn’t the issue. The issue is with the folks that do nothing but seek others brush piles by whatever means available. I used to post weekly fishing reports on this site, but had to stop due to being bird dogged every single time I launched my boat. Some of my favorite spots are now lost due to brush poachers camping on spots that were once automatic and now are void of fish. It is my belief that individuals that question the ethics of brush fishing are doing so because they are more likely part of the problem and are looking for support of other anglers to validate their own misgivings.

    EDIT: I just went back and read my original post. I DO INDEED include the wording "...riding around looking for other people's brushpiles..." (which was used in the video) So I can see perhaps I caused some confusion there as to the context of my qustion. But my intent was not to question "riding around looking for other people's brushpiles" but rather, simply looking for brush, aka structure, to fish.

    Somehow, trying to find some brush, stumps, logs or other structure at a creek mouth, on a drop-off, a point, off a dock, etc. doesn't hold the same context as "riding around looking for another man's brushpiles", but maybe that's splitting hairs. Lord knows, I don't want to do anything that would offend, cause confrontation or otherwise ruin someone's day fishing, they're too precious and life's too short.

    I don't think anyone would question the poor ethics of, rather than prospecting and finding productive spots, following another around as they sink brush, or fish certain spots, and targeting their spots based on what could only be defined as "spying".

    You’ve personally built over 500 brush piles? Wow! That’s phenomenal & you deserve a huge “Thank You” for your efforts at habitat improvement from all of us! My hat’s off to you sir!
    I’m afraid I’ve chased Rainbows, Brookies and Browns for too long & started chasing Crappie too late in life to accomplish much.

    I read once somewhere on these boards the best tool a crappie fisherman has onboard his boat is a good pair of binoculars. Pffffft.......
