We are proud to announce our newest artificial fish habitat mat placement system called the Legacy Habitat Mat, designed for shallow water, sloped and high pressure aquatic areas. Shorelines with heavy wave action, boating pressure and down right nasty conditions need spots for the fish to use for refuge too. With smaller fish enhancement and protection in mind, they are super easy to assemble and install with the drop in place, step and sink Legacy Habitat Units. Keeping an entire forest of cover intact and in the zone has never been so simple. Bend to shape PVC materials, proven to protect and grow more fish and never, any needed tools or supplies. Patented weight disbursement, allows the complex, densely packed and massive variety of shallow water habitat units, to be contained together into a myriad of fish friendly protection.
Unlike our larger, robust and heavier Modular Habitat Mats, The Legacy Habitat Mat System is different in a number of important ways. At only 12 pounds per completed Legacy Habitat Unit and 60 pounds for the Legacy Mat itself, they are easy to handle in pieces and carry. Unable to be stacked and placed on all six sides like the bigger 240 pound modular mats, the Legacy system allows ultimate mobility. By selecting the layout and density you want, it gives you the choice to create your own underwaterscape habitat design, unique and one of a kind, with unlimited options the others just can't. Capable of supporting hundreds of pounds, attaching additional habitat materials and other objects is a breeze, giving the fish all they need. wood, gravel, logs and brush can all be placed and fastened upon the Legacy Mats.
Interchangeable layout and design, hand placed variety with tightly packed centers, the fully completed Legacy Fish Habitat Units drop directly into the compartments inside the weighted Legacy Habitat Mats, friction fitting and forming a large, low profile cluster of cover in the layout that you create. Each habitat unit comes in it's own black "stump like" base, which has long proven to allow fish to shoulder against one side and is preferred. Slide the assembled mats off your dock, install them from a small boat or wade them directly into the shallows. Mix up profile types and give the fish the infinite options they need to stay protected and survive. Once the 125 plus pounds of cover comes to rest upon the lake floor, you and the fish can count on it being there for good, handing down a Legacy of fine home building for the future of fisheries.
Current flows, dropping water levels and steep slopes create tough conditions to keep habitat products intact, upright and in place. Theft/destruction, wave action, boating pressure and fisherman all take a toll on fish habitat structures, both natural and artificial. The new Legacy Habitat Mats have individually created, interchangeable components that stay together and intact, creating a myriad of abstract variety of artificial fish habitat. These densely packed reclaimed PVC habitat units, allow you to install multiple types and pieces together, forming a large and solid, stable, heavy habitat module that won't move or breakdown after install. Small enough for one person to install, large enough to stay in place forever.
This newest concept was born from a vision to create an ultra dense, high quality, long lasting shallow habitat grouping, that will ride out both the storms of nature and mankind in shallower waters. The need to hold fast on steep slopes with heavy wave action, rising and falling water levels and massive fishing pressure justified the goal. Easy to carry, assemble and install, create intricate habitat variation that is proven to grow and protect more fish.
Each Legacy Habitat Mat along with our hand made and fish proven Legacy Habitat Units, merge together to form a lasting bond of surface area, weight, complexity and stability. Leave a positive and fish friendly Legacy by creating habitat that will last for generations. Great for under docks, next to sea walls and around shallow flats in need of littoral zone cover.
Each Legacy Habitat Unit comes with a fully integrated cement base, shaped to fit into the corresponding shapes in the Legacy Habitat Mats. Individual Legacy Habitat Units drop into place and friction fit into the compartments in the Legacy Habitat Mat where you decide. We recommend five Legacy Habitat Units per Legacy Mat, but you can mix and match any way you want, adding more or less Habitat Units per Legacy Mat as desired, up to nine. Averaging 125 pounds and over 250 square feet of surface area with (5) Legacy Units and one Legacy Mat.
Each Legacy Habitat Mat has individually weighted compartments which also act like feet, spreading the weight evenly across the entire mat and keeping it from sinking into the sediment. Choose from three different Legacy Habitat Unit types, each of which will fit directly into the mat compartments in any layout you want. By creating your own customized Legacy Habitat Mats, you determine what kind of cover you want to give your fish in all of your different shallow water areas.
The Legacy Habitat Mat system is the ultimate shallow water cover with the density, variety and intricate detail to harbor and protect the smallest of important aquatic life. Utilizing exclusively, reclaimed plastic products and PVC materials for the benefit of the fish and environment, all Fishiding habitat products are hand cut, assembled and made in the USA with 100% reclaimed materials. No manufacturing.
When five Legacy Habitat Units are installed into the Legacy Mat, the completed mat weighs an average of 125 pounds. The Legacy Habitat Units average 12 pounds each and come in three complex variety types: Grass, Sticks and Leafs. Each of the three Legacy Habitat Unit varieties, create a minimum of 40 Square feet of surface area.
