With the 'Spawn' fast approaching, I decided to make up five of these 'Spawning Beds' and deposit in a local body of water.



A friend gave me the idea but wasn't as satisfied with the first design so started looking for a better base. Was driving up a local road when I spied 2 4' sections of this 12" plastic sewer pipe and decided to give it a go. Was easy to split in half and then drill to accept the PEX and bamboo. No weight was added but it sank like a rock and should stay put.

They are sitting in 4 - 5' of water and you can't see them from deck height. Will let you know how they work in the weeks to come.

Don - angel but you would like them if you happen to find them.

Thanks Tony - I still have an open seat for you if you ever get to the Metromess.

burton - just messing with you.

Ketchn - I put an Opra magazine and baited them with Bon-Bons for the ladies.

I just want to know if they work. Some good thinking, appears to me.



"Love is something more stern and splendid than mere kindness."

"All that we call human history--money, poverty, ambition, war, prostitution, classes, empires, slavery--[is] the long terrible story of man trying to find something other than God which will make him happy." C.S. Lewis
