In my opinion, the purpose of putting dog food in a brush pile would be to attract fish to a location unknown by other fishermen, so it creates an advantage that's frowned upon. On the other hand, the purpose of merely sinking a brush pile would be to attract fish to a location unknown by other fishermen. See the difference?

I see verbiage against “baiting a hole” regularly in tournament rules


I'd go with CCTX's interpretation.

I'm just hoping I can catch enough fish for people to think I'm cheating:)

Tom Brady probably puts a few out. I guess he is the goat after all.

If it’s not prohibited in the rules then probably just a competitive advantage anyone can use.

Robbie Rose was the "king' of brushpiles, and building and sinking them.

Or so he claimed

Isn't that ironic

does anybody know what B.A.S.S. or FLW says in their rules about brush piles or placing of dog food in them....I couldn't find their rules in either website but did find the rules for Alabama Bass trail which is one of larger tourney trails in my area and there is no mention of brushpiles in their rules nor baiting of fish...

Tournament rules have wording to follow state and water body rules and regulations. If that specific water body in that state allows for the sinking of brushpiles; then you may do so prior to the off the water/off limits time period.
For most major tournaments, that is 28-30 days. The off limits period includes recreational swimming, scuba diving, being a passenger in a friend's boat, etc, etc, etc.

From American Bass Tournament rules (chumming is prohibited. Baiting a hole is chumming)
