my Question is. Does it affect the area when you bump the structure with your boat? Does it scare the fish off.

I used to think it did but I have hit some trees hard and caught fish off of them still. Dont think it makes a big difference.

I have done the same as Kid Krappie and I just think it depends on how hungry they are...If you do hit it just give them some time and they will get right back in the swing of things. thumb

I relate it to trophy bass fishing. Big rogue bass can be exceptionally spooky. Bump the tree, or cause a boat shadow over there area and they move off. Big crappie can be the same way. One of the reasons crappie fisherman fishing timber, or spider riggers use long poles. I find fishing just outside the intended target has landed me larger crappie, and as I move in a steadier bite of smaller crappie.

For the most part you R Right but, IMHO,I think a lot depends on the depth of the h20 , height of the tree in that h20 you are fishing & the depth the fish (Crappie) are holding @ in respect to that tree you bump. 2cents

Bumping a tree doesn't matter; UNTILL IT DOES.
I do my best to not bump any trees.

I know it's kind of a different experiment, but over the last 2 summer's I have counted crappie catches at my dock and I can't twice as many crappie when the kids are jumping in the water and splashing literally 5 ft away from my slip. Not sure if the splash excites them? Its wild

Years ago, dad would keep a pail full of fine rocks that he would throw into the water to simulate fish feeding. It worked especially well at night when crappie were feeding shallow.

I prefer not to, but I will still fish a tree even if I've bumped it getting in there. Sometimes you still get bit and even pick up a good un. Sometimes nada. hammer

Think of it like this. Before electronics we would always tie up to the tree. We would bang and clang, talk loud and have a great time filling the live well. There have been times when fishing a tree the bite will stop. I have grabbed the tree and shook it or smack it a few times with something hard and get a few more fish to bite before moving to the next one.

David, with that live scope, you can answer this in a few weeks. You'll know what's there before you pull up. See what the fish do after you bump the tree a couple times. Give us a report; would be interesting to know.
Also, if there's a difference in the fish reaction based on the size of the fish.

Yes, sir, I will try and do this tomorrow. Hitting Bridgeport in hopes to get out of the wind and put the LiveScope through some different paces.
