I got a bunch of soccer ball size rocks I saved from having my driveway repaired. I'm wanting to sink them in the lake, just not real sure what depth I should put them at. Was thinking about 4 to 6 ft for the spawn. Any ideas?

I wouldn't sink them deep. Takes too many to make a difference.

The depth really depends on the lake...but I wouldn't go too deep (based on personal experience) and I would try to set them up in pre-spawn staging locations or just one location depending on how many rocks you have.

I hope he does, finally get that sink hole filled, HUH Harold..... nuts

Seriously, I have over 100 Windsor stones, their about 10-15 lbs ea. Old flower bed liner's, I'm also interested in the replies here. I was thinking 6-9 foot on a channel swing with timber not far from my dock.. Never dropped rocks before either.

It takes A LOT of rocks to be successful. 5-10' if there is an isolated tree on a point or flat that normally produces fish. I like a spot that already holds bass. It is likely to hold more fish mixing 2 types of cover.

I can tell you what happens when you sink them too shallow. Carried a bunch to Choke Canyon and put all in one spot. They produced after 6 months or so really well. Every time I go there now I get to look at all the work I did 15' up on the bank. I did a really good job of spacing and grouping. Much better than I though I did.

If putting them in Conroe I would put them on a main creek ledge on the shallow side just before the drop. I would try to focus on 8-10 feet of water where it drops of to around 20 feet or more.

Rock pile on Fork near structure like tank dam, point, docks should be good
Rocks on Falcon attract fish, even small rock piles
Rocks likely attract and hold crawfish
5-10 feet on Fork should work
