This new 14 foot six inch HighRise Habitat with Vertical UpRiseTM* is the pinnacle of tall, magnum sized artificial fish habitat products. Until now, no habitat products above 5 or 6 feet tall have been available for fisheries professionals to reach taller in the water column, with no ability to stand on steep slopes. This habitat unit stands three times that!
This big as life artificial fish habitat giant, stands a full 14'-6" tall and weighs 50 pounds complete. Assembled in three sections by hand, it also comes with three bait fish pucks, each containing over 26 square feet of fine, dense cover along the black, snag proof trunk.
The total square footage of this Pillar of the community is over 165 square feet. Opening up to a 9-6" diameter of limbs at the base, this towering tree of cover, offers shelter and food all along the 10 foot long trunk. Bursting in all directions with various sized limbs and branches, it flexes with the wave action, truly habitat that comes to life!
The base stands 60" tall with a sizing array of our vinyl limbs to be bent by hand, or left to sprawl in the lower basement level of the massive protection this section provides. One bait fish puck gets popped into the top of this first section of trunk. The center section boasts two more pucks and another five feet of height. The 5 foot tall top section gets twisted onto that and the whole unit will stand up alone. All the connections take place right at chest level, easy to reach and hold the light weight top sections. Just start to twist together from top to mid to lower section, working your way down. Push it in the drink and watch the bubbles disappear, mark it!
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. It is impossible for this habitat unit to fall over, standing tall in the water no matter what slope or material composition they come to rest upon with Vertical UpRiseTM*.
Because of the sheer size of this towering tree, 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.
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 fluctuate water levels often. Weighs 50 pounds
