I agree with Katfish76. I have caught fish on them 90 days later but they really need a year and seem to be even better at 2 years.
The most important part of putting out the cover is put it in an area where you know fish will be. All the beds I put near places I caught fish ended up holding fish. About 3/4 the ones I took a chance and just put in good looking spots held fish.

It's hard to say. I've caught fish on some that were only a couple weeks old. Typically they tend to hold fish the next year.

Biggame, i live in j'ville! Come see me some time! I built 6 beds using 5 gallon buckets with oak sticks and poured sackrete in them. I think it's easier to drive the sticks in the mud. Will have to put in water soon, no bites in driveway. big game tell Evonne hi, talked to jimmy chappell tonight he said hi.


Somebody's got to do it , why not me

A place for a game fish to rest in relative security from predators and current. Coveri is a non-permanent physical feature of the body of water.
