So, if I had access to several of these with the plastic removed, I was thinking I could lash 4 of them together in a big cube, put weight inside them and either tie brush to them or stuff them with bamboo.

Think it would hold fish?

Anything would hold fish but those would eat jigs like candy.

They will definitely hold fish but like stated above, will probably eat jigs big time.

You think so? I figured the rounded tubes would sort of let them roll off.

Brush and bamboo don't care what is holding them down. Crappie don't either.

Would that work better that 5 gallon buckets ? who knows. They would be hard to
deploy if they were stuffed with brush.
good luck

OMGalways looking for why something want work. patty you said the bigger the better.cant eat jigs any more than that big tree you put in the lake. if it was easy our wife could do it.just sink them close,it will work great. one of my best piles is 6 old washing machines. been there 15 years.crappies, bass,catfish.bet they would work even without brush. drill 1/4in holes in tubing too let air out.try it you might like it.
who_knows

He said he would remove the tubes and either stuff them with brush or Bamboo.I think it would work if it was stuffed to the hilt with enough brush that would keep a jig from snagging the metal.Once it`s sunk with brush or bamboo I would scan it to see how the fish are oriented to it and then fish accordingly.If I get hung up in the brush.. no big deal. The brush will give your jig back sometimes but that metal cage held down with weight would not be so forgiving.But what do I know? 2cents

Four of those tied together with some big limbs tied in would be great. Two tied together with 6-8 ft limbs angled out or horizontal would hold crappie for sure. I'd put the limbs close to the top of the crate so fish can get under the limbs.

I'm with Ernest.
Everywhere 2 of those tubes meet is a corner just waiting to gobble up a jig.
Another reason I'm not a big fan of pallets either...
That being said, I'm always willing to sink ANYTHING and give it a shot! grin

Weedless jigheads. I've been using them for the past several years and I see no difference in hook-up ratio.

I do trim the weedguard.
