Honey Hole Brush
This fish attractor was designed by Pond King’s fisheries biologists specifically to help pond and lake owners with their fish population management. Honey Hole Brush is a quick deploying, complex artificial fish habitat designed to be placed in areas where brush piles would normally be utilized to attract fish. One of the major problems with natural cover like brush is degradation over time within aquatic environments. The Honey Hole Brush provides a permanent surrogate to cover like submerged brush piles with the same amount of structural complexity as most brush when it’s newly deployed.

The Honey Hole Brush is the perfect artificial cover to attract fish to your favorite fishing spot
Like all the Honey Hole Live Series artificial fish habitat, the Honey Hole Brush is made of High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE), so it is always safe for the environment. With an high limb and leaf count, the Brush quickly accumulates periphyton, which in turn, attracts and holds fish.
Habitat for Juvenile Life Stages in Moderate Water
Designed to provide cover for intermediary fish as they venture into deeper water, the Brush is constructed to move like "natural" habitat and will never off-gas toxins into your pond. It requires minimal assembly and the internal weight and float provides a self-righting design, making deployment from the shore or from a boat easy - simply toss it into the water.
This complex medium-depth habitat provides instant habitat for multiple species of fish
- Perfect cover to attract fish to enhance a favorite fishing spot.
- Provides a permanent solution for quickly creating brush-like cover in ponds or lakes.
- Ideal for water 7 to 10 feet deep.
Each Honey Hole Brush includes:
The Honey Hole Brush ships free via ground within the continental U.S.
Honey Hole Brush Specs
The Honey Hole® Brush requires very little assembly, and can be completed in a few minutes! No tools or glue are necessary. Weight is already included, however for areas with current or high flow, additional weight is suggested. Check out our assembly video for more tips.
- Group the (6) leaves at the top of the main stem and slide through the center hole of each of the (10) 4’ horizontal limbs, spacing the limbs evenly down the stem. Insert the sealed float at the top of the stem, and then push the retainer into the pre-drilled hole.
- Turn the horizontal limbs to create a random pattern and spread the leaves apart by folding them backward against each limb.
- Once completed, you’re ready to toss into the water and watch it sink!

Why is fish habitat so important?
Fish like cover. They either go to it to feed, or they go to it to avoid being eaten. Submerged vegetation is valuable as habitat for predatory species like Bass or Crappie and for forage species like Bluegill. Pond King’s fish biologists designed the Honey Hole product line to augment or replace naturally occurring aquatic vegetation to attract game fish (the fish that use cover as ambush to help them feed) and protect forage fish. Our artificial fish habitat is designed for pond and lake owners to help with fish population management.
Why use artificial fish habitat instead of natural vegetation or cover?
Natural vegetation can be difficult to control for a two primary reasons;
- Vegetation can take over the environment,
- Structure can, and almost always does, decay.
It’s not all that easy to manage naturally occurring habitat. Our fish habitat is intended to provide an effective and affordable alternative to natural cover types for a variety of purposes and objectives. All of Pond King’s artificial fish habitat is safe for the environment, reduces the likelihood of snagged lures, is easy to assemble and deploy, and doesn’t decay, and you can find it using your fish finder so locating your honey hole season after season is a a snap.
What’s the difference between the Honey Hole Live Series and the Refuge Series?
The major difference is that one series is designed to mimic natural “cover” and the other to serve as an alternative to natural “structure.”
The Live Series, with its dual colored leaf variation, dynamic movement, and structural complexity, is designed to imitate cover. In fact, it is the only artificial fish habitat on the market that imitates the dynamic movement and structural complexity of natural cover like aquatic vegetation and brush. Flexible limbs that move with current and natural appearances are part of each of the five different offerings within this artificial habitat line.
The Refuge Series, with its internal protective space and external habitat that provides cover for fish at various life stages is intended to replicate “structure.” Although the products in Refuge line are very similar to the natural structure sought by both juvenile and mature fishes as shelter, they are all constructed of flexible, snag-resistant limbs that never need to be replaced.
Is there any assembly required for the Honey Hole Artificial Fish Habitat?
The Honey Hole Reed, Canopy and Dock Dropper all ship fully assembled. The other Honey Hole products require some minimal assembly, which can easily be done in your shop or at your pond, but never with any toxic glues!
Is it hard to install the Honey Hole Artificial Habitat?
Absolutely not! The Honey Hole, and the Honey Hole Reed, Brush and Grass can just be tossed into the water from your boat or the shore. You just drop the Dock Dropper from your dock (as the name implies), secure it to your deck and you are good to go. The Honey Hole Canopy requires just a little more effort; you just have to attach it to a weight (not included), and then drop it the water.
Is the Honey Hole Artificial Fish Habitat environmentally safe?
All the Honey Hole artificial fish habitat is made of High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) and is designed to be assembled without any toxic glues or adhesives, so yes it is safe for the environment. In fact, given that it doesn’t degrade overtime and minimizes the number of lures snagged that land on the bottom of the lake or pond, some might even say our artificial fish habitat is good for the environment.

Other Artificial Fish Habitat
- HDPE with added UV inhibitor is highly resistant to degradation from exposure to sunlight, temperature extremes, and acidic or alkali conditions.
- Environmental degradation causes PVC to become brittle, and long term structural integrity of PVC habitat in shallow aquatic environments is problematic.
- HDPE and LDPE used are biologically inert materials and are the same type of plastic approved by the FDA for use in the food storage industry.
- PVC is a mixture of vinyl chloride and phthalate based plasticizers, and other additives; many of which are suspected carcinogens and endocrine disruptors.
- Only clean, environmentally nontoxic, durable material is used to construct Honey Hole Artificial Habitat. LDPE is sourced from virgin material free from contaminants.
- The manufacture, use and disposal cuckle of PVC is not "green." The release of dioxin - a persistent and highly toxic chemical - occurs during synthesis and incineration.
- HDPE is source from recycled factory re-grind material verified for environmental safety and quality, to reduce unnecessary waste and promote sustainability.
- PVC can contain biocides that are designed to deter microbial growth which may negatively affect bacterial diversity in biofilm that accumulates on submerged artificial habitat constructed from re-purposed PVC products.
