Don’t you just love to fish ponds? Who wouldn’t? Ponds or small lakes usually have limited angling pressures and if managed correctly will have a number of trophy sizes fish in it. Some of these ponds are void of any kind of cover while others are overloaded with fish cover. Naturally the best, most productive fishing ponds will have a balanced amount of fish cover placed in strategically locations.
Fish cover placed in ponds will attract aquatic invertebrates, provides shelter for smaller fish and give predator fish a place to ambush forage. Fish attractors become the nucleus of all living things in the pond, so when you go to add some Fishiding artificial PVC fish attractors it’s important to know where to drop them or to mark where the other Fishiding artificial PVC fish attractors are to keep track of them. That’s where the StructureSpot, the fish structure installation system becomes indispensable.
StructureSpot (www.Fishiding.com), the fish structure installation system by Fishiding, was design to assist pond owners, professional lake management companies or anyone when sinking artificial PVC fish attractors or natural fish cover into a pond or small lake. “If you have dropped fish structure before, you know the dilemma…how do you keep track of each fish structure in relationship to the rest after it sinks out of sight? Now you can spot each one to see exactly where each fish structure lands; in addition to creating the pattern of fish cover you intended to with “Spot-on” accuracy,” said David Ewald, owner of Fishiding. Pond owners, professional lake management companies or anyone getting ready to add artificial PVC fish attractors should have a plan or make a map of where they are going to the fish cover before doing it. Certain factors should be kept in mind because they will become issues if the fish cover is put in an inappropriate location. First, place the artificial PVC fish attractors like Fishiding units within easy casting distance for anglers. Locations near boat docks, piers or points are prime spots. Don’t scatter the artificial PVC fish attractors individually or randomly. Fish will migrate towards cover and group up around artificial PVC fish attractors in piles or groups making them easier to fish…catching them is of course of the anglers skill or luck level. Use fish cover that has high surface area if possible since that will attract smaller fish and predators.
Directions for using StructureSpot, the fish structure installation system:
1. Attach sturdy clip from lanyard of StructureSpot to top of the structure or object.
2. Release or toss the structure and StructureSpot in the pond or lake.
3. Watch StructureSpot rise vertically about the structure or object.
4. Repeat until all the structure or objects is in place,
5. Pull each StructureSpot free and wind up for re-use.
6. Attach clip to ballast weight for tangle-free storage.
StructureSpot, the fish structure installation system, is available in four models including the ShallowSpot 6, ShallowSpot 14, DeepSpot 4 and the DeepSpot 10. The DeepSpot measure 5½-inches long and 2½-inches in diameter with over 60 feet of line attached to a sturdy spring clip. The ShallowSpot measures 3½-inches long and 1½-inch in diameter with over 30 feet of line attached to a sturdy spring clip. Each StructureSpot comes with its own storage bag they can be placed in for storing and reusing in the future; in addition to being made in the United States with all American materials.
After sinking the artificial PVC fish attractors the area should be marked unless located next to a physical marker like a boat dock or pier. To keep the pond more esthetically pleasing by using a duck decoy and wire cord connected to a heavy weigh close by the artificial PVC fish attractors. Another idea to remembering where the Fishiding units are located in the pond is to take a photo of them before removing the StructureSpot marker buoys still attached.
By using StructureSpot, pond owners, professional lake management companies or anyone sinking fish cover can ensure that your fish structure and habitat projects will succeed with accurate fish habitat placement.
