Hey Marrioh. We make crappiei pots much like these and we pot about half sand in the bottom and cover with about 4 inches of concrete. Also adding pots to a lake with little natural will no doubt improve your catch and make the crappie easier to find.

hey 44mag i have about a 8 to ten acre pond with not that much structure. when i fish it i sometime catch about three or four nice black crappiei about 12 to 14 inches but never small ones. or none at all and its hard to locate them do you think by adding some crappie buckets will help..

I'm sure any kind of structure would help you find crappiei in your lake. It sure helps us find crappie in large lakes, like Pickwick Lake and Bay Springs Lake.

We fix ours same as Ray. I like to use cane because they usually stand up and don't have as many hang ups when fishing.

We will put them in 25 to 30 feet of water, they are not as tall as they look, they are around 10 to 12 feet tall.

A flat is just as it sounds. This is an area of shallow water that has no defined drop into deeper water. The water depth is uniform or gets deeper very gradually. Flats can be found at the backs of all the bays, in coves within the bays and on the main lake where the flat land adjacent to the river was covered up by water when the rivers were backed up by damming.
