Our Modular Habitat Mats, provide the easiest, tested and proven way to keep a large grouping of fish habitat units and products forever together and heavily weighted to the lake floor. The Eco-friendly, reclaimed and all safe plastic Fishiding Habitat Mats, allow you to assemble and slide hundreds of pounds of habitat groupings into the water directly off docks, boats, barges and pontoons without the need of heavy equipment. Incorporated grated feet, rails and runners combine to offer unlimited weight disbursement in virtually any underwater terrain, never sliding, tipping or moving once installed.
Be sure that your fish habitat products stay where you put them on the lake floor, with absolute certainty. Fishiding Habitat Mats allow you to easily attach any of our artificial habitat models in countless variety and positioning together in a group. Any type of artificial and natural habitat materials can be permanently attached and installed as a cluster together, without the need of additional tools, supplies or additional weighting. Super heavy zip ties and welded stainless steel rings ensure that all the habitat products stay intact forever.
Each fully patented Habitat Mat incorporates substantial weight, wide footprint and low center of mass, keeping the attached units and materials together and down on the lake floor for good. By increasing the habitat complexity, overall site density and by increasing the footprint, countless variations of module arrangements can be installed easily on most any bottom sediment type.
The ease of delivery, staging and deployment all combine to allow the simple installation of large habitat modules weighing hundreds of pounds, with ease and no special equipment. Our standard size Modular Mat comes 40"x 48"x 8" and weighs 235 pounds empty, before adding PVC materials, over 275# when complete. All Habitat Mats slide easily on flat, smooth surfaces like plastic, wood, metal or cement. Slots for forklift or pallet jacks are available on all four sides for easy transport to lake front, boat, barge or dock.

The 250#zip ties in both plastic and stainless steel and welded stainless steel rings, hold any Fishiding models that you select, upon/onto or inside the Mat for good.
