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

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.
