This is half of what goes into the fishing hole tomorrow. 2 trees, 2 starburst thingies, and 2 pellet feeders.



My garage floor is covered in PVC dust!!!

I would leave the pellet feeders somewhere far from those condos. Unless you want to catch a lot of carp and catfish.

The kitty fish are what #1 son is all about. The 2 pellet feeders go at the entrance to the slip. The trees and starburst go on the walkway end of the slip.

#2 son and I know the good fish!

Give me a few and I'll upload the stolen pic I have for making the starburst.

Here is the pic I stole to make the starburst.



Cut 1/2" PVC piece into 2" chuncks, add couplers with glue, hot glue into place on pre drilled holes in toilet float ball.

Easy to make for less than 1/4 the cost of commercial.

What do you use in the pellet feeder? Dog food or cat food or what? How long will that last? Interested in doing some of these things myself.

Phillcat, you can get floating catfish food in 40# bags at a lot of feed stores for about $20 per bag. I have an automatic feeder on my dock mainly for my grandkids and neighbor kids. I assure you the catfish will inundate you and the crappie will leave.
My feeder uses a deer feeder set to operate twice a day and the cats are waiting when the timer goes off and tear up the water fighting for the feed.
Good luck, if that is what you really want.
