Best longterm habitat structure for small fish, protecting forage fish recruitment in my 1 acre pond. I would recommend mossback products. I appreciate the folks in Springdale for making it easy to do business with.
Great for shallower water. Excellent "safe" area for small fish & fry to move through. Liked the natural color & rough surfaces for algae to grow for minnows, tad poles & bugs. Shipped very compact making it easy to move to install site. So much easier than dealing with woody structure. Very fisherman friendly by attracting, holding & not getting lures hung up. I'd recommend this product over other artificial & woody habitat structure.
