Bamboo Concrete Wire Condo

Hi, Here is the bamboo condos we dropped at the most recent drop...Darryl Morris came up with this idea...The concrete wire cost around $6 at Lowes....Concrete blocks are around $1.50 and boo was free... We use around 12-13 bamboo stalks and sort of weave it through the wire...Would not recommend putting to many stalks more than 45 degrees...The bamboo will want to rise up....You can also you string to tie the bamboo in to even secure it more.. We dropped five of them...Plan on having another habitat drop soon and drop about 10 more..They blow up on the depth finder..

Angling for Crappie is popular throughout much of North America. Methods vary, but among the most popular is called 'Spider Rigging', a method characterized by a fisherman in a boat with many long fishing rods pointing away from the angler at various angles like spokes from a wheel. Anglers who employ the Spider Rigging method may choose from among many popular baits. Some of the most popular are plastic jigs with lead jig heads, crankbaits or live minnows. Many anglers also chum or dump live bait into the water to attract the fish hoping the fish will bite their bait. Crappie are also regularly targeted and caught during the spawning period by fly fishermen, and can be taken from frozen ponds and lakes in winter by ice fishing.
