I am building some crappiei brush piles and was wondering what you guys used to tie what kind of weight to them?

Hey matt. I use double wrapped nylon rope and the large concrete blocks. Usually one block per brush with the brush being about 10 feet long. Make sure you tie the block to the center of the brush and as close to the trunk as possible.

A method of keeping fish alive after they have been caught. A string or small nylon rope is threaded through the mouth and gills of a fish and is then tied off to the boat or dock allowing the fish to remain overboard in the water but preventing them from swimming away. With the advent of livewells and other more modern methods of keeping fish, stringers have become nearly obsolete, but can still be quite handy when fishing from the bank of a pond. The term 'stringer' is also used by anglers to indicate the size of their catch for the day (10-pound stringer = 10 pounds of fish).
