North unit fun today
 
After discussing with DNR all winter, my buddy and I spent today sinking brush piles in the North unit today. Use all different types of brush that DNR had been cutting back off the roads since the beginning of waterfowl season. Used stainless and carbon tie wire to secure the brush to cinder blocks and out of the 13 we sank, only one tipped over when we set them.

Here is what some of them looked like before we dropped them

and here is what a pile of evergreens look like on down imaging :)21

If any of you local want to get together the next time I set this up, let me know and I'll get the ball rolling for it. It took up about 7 hours of my day and only cost me a couple gallons of fuel.

SIDE NOTE:
To the guy who called DNR complaining that I was running my gas motor on the lake....... Seriously? Me of all people intentionally breaking the law by running my outboard without permission? You watched us load the brush on my boat so you know what we were doing and seriously, you know who I am and I know who you are. I know you would jump at the chance to stir a pot of chit with me. So I hope it felt satisfying when Jim answered and told you that I had permission to do this to help support the fisheries and DNR. Perhaps you should have just spoke up since you were 15 ft from me. Oh BTW stop speeding in the park or you may hit a poor innocent squirrel. Have a nice day :)3

Excellent job on dropping the structure :)2.

As a side note,don't sweat the simple minded jags that would complain about an obvious good-for-everybody deed...

Did you set any shallower than 13 feet?

Yes, but in most cases no. The piles were at times up to 10' tall lol

Haha in all reality, they won't be holding fish for 3-4 months and even then I would expect to see baitfish or fry on them. Don't worry, I put them in your favorite lake too, even the Christmas tree from my house.
