This is about 40 iv put out in 3 years and yes they really work.iv caught Crappie off some in 2 days after putting them in. there is 1/2 th block of cement in the bottom to make them sink.and zip ties on the pipe inside so the pipe cant come back out.

I like that design.
I ran in to some poly line recently and just may borrow that idea

Do those show up on your sonar pretty good hawghoover? Also do you put several in one area or one per location?

Rebar strips in the bucket. Others will be a little baffled at the tiny strong returns on the bottom but you will know what they are!
I drop buoy and drop 4 buckets around it then put transducer next to bucket and waypoint.

Do you build them different if the entire (several hundred acre) lake is no deeper than 6 feet?

The milk crates dont seem good to me, too many edges to hang on and pull whole structure up when trying to clear snag.

Yeah those crates are probably not a good idea. You will definitely stay hung in those.
