Brush Piles

We seen some guys sinking some trees made out of PVC pipe the other day. Sounds like a pretty good idea. Is this legal? Does the Corp regulate anything on sinking things like this? These PVC trees would be there forever and you probably would not hang up in them as bad.

i have heard of guys doing this in grand lake in ok i dont know if there is any rules ang regulations in doing this but i have heard that they are easier to fish than the old christmas trees but i think it does take a year or to for the fish to start using them the alge has to start forming before the fish will come around that is what i have heard

I knew crappie guides on lake Maumelle in Little Rock who would build movable "brush piles" out of wood palates. They would move them frequently so that their clients didn't go back out and fish their spots. That would make me think the fish relate to them pretty quickly. I think the crappie relate to any vertical structure that holds bait, whether it has algae on it or not, although the algae might be what attracts bait. I know we've burned our christmas trees in the past so that they wouldn't get gunked up with algae. I bet the PVC trees work pretty darn well.

I spoke with a crappie guide on Truman Lake that uses bamboo. He creates a small bamboo structure and then sinks them. He told me he uses bamboo for several reasons. One, it lasts a lot longer than wood will submerged in water. Two there are no limbs to get your lures hung on. Pretty cool i thought.
