How good are the porcupines, and how long does it take for the pvc to start holding fish?

I'VE GOT SEVERAL OF THESE OUT AND THEY DO WORK. I BOUGHT JUST THE BALLS AND THEN BOUGHT 1/2 INCH PVC AT LOWES. I BOUGHT THEM 4 OR 5 YEARS AGO AND WE STILL CATCH A GOOD MANY FISH OFF THEM.NOT SURE HOW LONG IT TAKES TO ATTRACT FISH I WOULD GUESS A COUPLE MONTHS.. SINCE THEY HAVE GONE UP SO MUCH WE ARE GOING TO KENTUCKY LAKE THIS WEEKEND AND PUT OUT10-12 BAMBOO,CEDAR AND STAKE COMBINATION BEDS. MAY NOT LAST AS LONG BUT THEY ARE GOOD LOOKING BEDS. MIGHT EVEN TRY TO CATCH A FEW CRAPPIE WHILE WE ARE THERE. MARK

Well first I will say I think the porcupine fish attractors will work and hold fish if placed in the right area. They are easy to deploy no doubt. That said, they are terribly expensive for the size cover they create. When I looked into them I figured it would take at least 4 in a spot to make a cover worth my time. That would make a spot well over $100 to make. I typically make 30 to 50 spots a year so they are just out of my price range. I think PVC is proven to attract crappiei but not sure it is greatly ahead of wood or bamboo. Just the way I see it.
