Yes, new brush will concentrate the available crappie quickly.


But I will add if it gets discovered due to near trees in the area it will become a community hole quickly.

You are better off putting brush in a place with no cover IMO

it depends on if the timber in the area already holds some fish. pay more attention to the bottom features of the lake.. most timber grew along old creeklines. some are submerged due to lakes being risen several or many feet over the decades. large timber patches that are on flat, unremarkable bottoms is usually not prime realestate for crappie.. timber near points , inside hard creek or river bends, isolated timber on the main lake , ect is where I look. the type of timber can also matter,, bois di arc and willow grow near alot of water.. this is a clue that there was a creek or river near them at one time, before they were flooded.
crappie like stuff on points, draws, breaklines, bends, near rockpiles, ect/.


COMING SOON! .. THE STICKLE HOOK " the stay level sickle hook". sits level in the water with all knots.! Provides better hook sets and more natural jigging motion. No more adjusting the knot, gluing , or tying loop knots that cause the hook point to tangle in the loop, or worse knick the line.. The jighook that will make all others obsolete !

I generally try and stay away from dropping Brushpiles next to visible trees. They attract pontoon boats. Lol!

That's no lie! Find a tall tree and get close enough to see the rope marks on it and you have already found a brushpile! roflmao
