Our newest, ultra large and first ever artificial fish habitat arrangement in a reclaimed plastic barrel, holds hundreds of separate pieces of never before seen cuts and profiles of 100% reclaimed PVC habitat. We've found a way to display and ship our most robust habitat creations, tighter and tougher for the fish! Seven inches of thick concrete hold things together in the base and heavily weighted in the bottom of the barrel, standing up in all conditions.

Waves, current, slope or fishing pressure will not pull these magnum sized units from their roots on the lake floor. Low center of gravity with wispy, rigid and flexible branches, flow with any outside forces brought upon them.

Starting always with reclaimed plastic barrels, we then add about 125 pounds of wet concrete and 50 pounds of our patented reclaimed PVC habitat pieces, creating the perfect eight story, fish hiding resort. Pieces can be left standing tall, some can be bent in any angles by hand. Individual limbs ranging from 48" tall up to over 100 inches, flow freely and naturally in the water column. A minimum of 400 square feet of surface area per unit, protect a multitude of fish, bugs and all aquatic creatures.

Averaging 175 pounds per completed unit, these barrels each hold hundreds of limbs, branches, trunks, ShtakesTM and ShleafsTM. Vertical density unmatched. Anyone can roll them off the boat or dock with ease.

Each completed Barrel habitat is unique and one of a kind, just like we find in nature. Colorful, abstract and always welcoming, fish gravitate into the thousands of individual crevices provide within the intricate and ever changing, detail.

Large footprint and extreme weight hold these towering creations in one place forever. Installation is a breeze. You can simply drag or carry them with the incorporated handles, or use a two wheel dolly cart. Once in the boat, pontoon or on the dock, you can roll them around on edge and push it into the water. It stands up no matter what, on slopes and current areas. Taller, heavier and wider options are always available, contact us today to talk about your ideas and goals.
