This artificial fish habitat unit is the first ever known to stand well over 10 feet tall, actually it stands a full twelve feet.
Once the HighRise Habitat with Vertical UpRiseTM* was developed and incorporated into our reclaimed PVC habitat materials, there was no stopping on how high we could go with mass amounts of coverage and surface area. Standing tall in the water column, this giant of a fish structure will hold schools of fish of all sizes, averaging approx. 140 square feet of limbs, trunks and bait fish pucks.
Three main sections make up the 12/0 HighRise, along with two bait fish pucks bursting with fine, flexible and dense protection. The base, which stands 60" tall, unfolds to over 9'-6" diameter. Next the 30" long mid section, has another puck opening and more surface area. The 5 foot tall top attaches to that, creating a conical skyscraper of "living" habitat.
As always, the textured vinyl material grows life fast. The ability to move with the current created by wind, waves etc., allow this new dimension of deep and steep artificial habitat to flex like a tree in the wind. Impossible to fall over standing tall in the water no matter what slope or material composition they come to rest upon.
Each 12/0 HighRise Habitat with Vertical UpRiseTM* weighs about 45 pounds and ready to install. Because of the sheer size of this habitat tower, we recommend pre-bending on shore. Bend all the sections to shape and hold back up with a string. Throw them in the boat and pull the string upon arrival at your designated spot. They vinyl limbs will spring back to the shape you bent them to on shore. Pop in the pucks here or ahead of time, twist the three sections together and push overboard. The upper sections are light-weight and easy to hold up and twist together, anyone can install these!
Standing so tall, we recommend installing in depths over 15 feet.
It is important to note that if your water level ever drops below the top four or five feet of any HighRise Habitat with Vertical UpRiseTM there is no need to worry. If placed on a slope, the unit will lay down in the water as it drops, only to rise again when the water comes back up. A true laydown that will "re-grow" itself when waters rise again. Perfect for reservoirs and floating boat houses that flucuate water levels often. Weighs approx.45 pounds

Our lake house dock drops into very deep water right at the end. The steep slope made it hard to keep pallets and christmas tress from sliding down. This HighRise stuff stays standing straight up right where we dropped it and is full of fish. Well done fishiding!

Very happy with the unit. Easy to put in and fish all over it right away. Good stuff here!
