These newest large and robust, transition depth habitat barrels, offer the textures, density and coarse limbs for intermediate travel lines that the fish need. Standing over six feet tall, these (4) 175 pound barrels, will stay upright and in place for generations. Like a solid row of Oaks, these strong and protective resting areas, provide food, cover and hunting as fish move freely through them.
Poured into a reclaimed plastic barrel, the hundreds of wide and medium sized limbs, compliment the sizes of gaps and spaces needed for medium sized fish use. Similar to the BoardroomTM modular habitat mat, the interior is filled with wide panels of cover that stand vertical, forever over time. Surrounded and encased by a multitude of wide ShleafsTM, the stiff and flimsy panels of protection meet, creating the give and take required to create suitable, desired, artificial fish habitat.
The 20" diameter reclaimed plastic base standing 8" tall, holds 125 pounds of cement, adhering the additional 50 pounds of reclaimed PVC pieces together like a root wad from an old oak. The included profiles of all reclaimed PVC materials, can be bent to create more detailed shapes, or left as they come, ready for the fish. Pinch the tops, bend some of the tips, but leave a few limbs standing tall to create that towering vertical height the fish need. The shorter 3 and 4 footers and some of the fives, are easy to bend out to fill the lower levels to fill as shown. The 2" wide predator guards at the bottom, rise once underwater and help create the basement effect shown to be important to all species.
Two incorporated cotton handles allow ease of carrying, sliding or rolling into boat, dock or dry lake bed. Additional attachment points are easily added to barrel sides, giving you the ability to attach other items you wish to be anchored together and stay in one place.
Each Transition Timber barrel unit, opens to over a 10 foot diameter hardwood bush standing over six feet tall. These mid depth transition models can be mixed up with the taller and much more intricate eight foot models, in any quantities you'd like. Same price, same amount of surface area in each model. Two of each, one and three, you decide and we will send all four to your door on a pallet ready to install as fast as you can roll them off the boat!
Multiple arrangements can be created with any of our PVC habitat materials seen in other models. Prefer using our heavier Modular mats for ultra steep and abstract layout design? No problem, we can build these and any of our products specifically to fit your needs.

This group of habitat barrels is perfect to add to my taller eight foot models. I live on a reservoir with a lot of current and these things stay put and hold fish all season. Great work!
