From the very beginning almost fifteen years ago, this keeper fish crib model has helped increase viable fish habitat Nationwide. Originally standing 48" tall, thousands of this popular fish habitat units have been installed coast to coast. Now standing a foot taller than the original, these  fish attractor PVC units stand 60" tall and open to nine foot six inches in diameter. Included with each fish habitat or sometimes called a fish crib, the new built in Vertical UpRiseTM* has been incorporated to ensure vertical placement on any under water terrain and fishing pressure. Working well in depths from the transition zone out, these open limbed but tightly packed center cores, allow some small fish inside to hide and plenty of room for predators to roam.  Maximum shade and protection is abundant throughout this eco-friendly artificial fish habitat product, exclusively made with reclaimed PVC material. With limbs standing a full 60" tall, these 1/2" to 5" wide surfaces grow algae and aquatic life quickly. Textured and weathered PVC habitat surfaces, promotes rapid periphyton and algae growth. Bend to any shape by hand and toss into the water, with no tools or additional supplies needed. Average shaping/folding time is 5 minutes or less! Far better than any silly ugly tree habitat.


Each keeper fish habitat unit weighs approx. 26 pounds and is recommended for depths over 8 feet. This large and shade producing fish attractor and fish cover, provides fish habitat for all sizes of fish including larger fish species Bass, crappie and pan fish, utilize the shading effects this proven model creates.  Each reclaimed artificial fish habitat unit, arrives self weighted and ready to bend to shape and toss in the lake. The 10" diameter black "stump" base, holds the fish crib upright, creating the basement level of cover shading the perimeter. Over 75 square feet surface area each fish crib unit.


Large predator fish need large scale fish habitat to feed and hide around to hunt. This artificial fish cover not only covers large sections of the lake bottom, but equally large surface areas to support new life. The food chain begins in shallow water and then comes here, to the transition and deeper water for food source.  Algae and periphyton adheres to the textured surfaces throughout and begins to grow quickly in all waters. Snags are no issue with the forgiving movement of our reclaimed PVC limbs. The Vertical UpRiseTM allows the unit to stand vertically, even on slopes. One of our three original models, thousands of these fish holding cribs grow life all over the country with continued success.  The larger area of cover you provide to your fishery, the larger number of fish can use it at one time. We recommend at least three to five artificial fish structures of any type be used in a group, although seven to ten can hold dozens of large fish and forage fish. Experiment with varieties and layouts to offer the fish the most variety. PVC structure designs that the fish have shown us they prefer. From reservoir fish habitat to pond fish structure and small fish habitat including fish attracting devices, the Keeper holds fish everywhere.

    This stuff is the best fish attractors on the market. I have all the different types and these just hold fish. Buy from the leader of fish cover that the fish love.

    Get ready to catch some fish!

    Posted by Sam McAdoo on 15th Oct 2019

    I put 2 of the keeper habitats in about 8' of water next to 2 shallower stakeout habitats and they are covered in growth. I throw out 3mm fish feed daily and huge bluegill swarm around these habitats. I'm up to 5 citation bass and 3 citation bluegill this summer right off my dock! I've tried other products in the past like the porcupine balls, 5 gallon buckets with pvc coming out of the top and brush piles and none of those come close to these units.I'll be buying material to build more of these over the next few months.

    Easy installation for kids

    Posted by Sarah Hanson on 31st Jan 2019

    We had our three kids ages 5,7 and 10 bend and install 6 of these for our dock. The kids had a blast and now have contests for who catches more fish on the habitat they bent and sank, what fun!

    Underwater weebles for fish

    Posted by Steve on 20th Jun 2016

    Great idea to keep trees standing up. You can pull them over with a fish on and they stand right back up. AWESOME!
