Honey Hole Tree

$239.00
The Honey Hole Tree is a multi-purpose piece of artificial fish habitat. The environmentally safe tubing which is used for the limbs creates 15,000 square inches of surface area for algae, eggs, and insect larvae to attach to, creating an ample food source for baitfish. The dozens of slots around the cone-shaped base allow baitfish access to a place to hide, which in turn attracts larger fish. The flexible limbs provide the ideal place for lunker bass to lay in waiting to ambush their prey. Unlike natural habitat, you can fish through the flexible limbs of this artificial fish structure without snagging your lure, putting more fish in the boat and fewer lures at the bottom of your pond.

Honey hole trees

I bought 3 honey hole trees after saving for a year! Well worth the wait. The trees were very easy to assemble and very well constructed. I added a concrete block to each one for a little more weight. All trees were put in 9 ft. Of water with excellent results in about a week. So far I have caught 3 bass, 2-4, 3-15 & 4-4 pluss some nice crappie between 1 & 2 lbs. Thanks for a quality product. I'm in the process of saving for another future purchase. If you have a lake with little cover, purchase these trees, you'll be very happy with the results.

Honey Hole Tree

Received my Honey Hole tree and had no problems with set up. Decided to suspend it vs. putting it in the bottom. On sonar, within 24 hours was holding a large amount of fish. Looking forward to purchasing many more.

Honey Hole Tree

They are working great! Have been catching some nice crappie around them some of them in the 2 plus lbs range. Would recommend them highly!

Bass and Crappie Anglers Love the Honey Hole Tree

A cluster of at least 3 trees in a triangular pattern is the most effective. Sink trees on points or coves and any spot where there is a sharp contrast in water depth. Another prime location is under a floating dock or pier. In deeper water you may want to suspend the tree off the bottom. Most fish, especially bass and crappie, like to suspend off of the bottom when water depths exceed 15 feet. The Honey Hole Tree is the only artificial fish habitat on the market that can be suspended from the bottom.

Why Add Structure to Your Pond or Lake

Habitat for Juvenile Life Stages in Moderate Water Depths

Like all of Pond King's Honey Hole Habitat, The Honey Hole Tree is made from food-storage quality materials so it won't ever off-gas toxins into your body of water. The holes in the cone-shaped base of the Honey Hole allow intermediate fish to seek cover and find ambush positions. And, the spacing between the limbs allows larger gamefish to pursue their prey. 


Honey Hole Tree Artificial Fish Habitat

This large, mid-depth habitat is ideal for sport fish that associate with cover.

  • Environmentally friendly and easy to install
  • Will not rot, never needs to be replaced
  • Ideal for water 6 - 10 feet deep



For each Honey Hole Tree ordered, you will receive: 

(1) Slotted Cone Base, (93) 36” Limbs, (1) Steel Weight Ring, (1) Eye Bolt.

Due to the size of this product, there is a nominal handling fee.

 

The Tree ships free via ground within the continental U.S.

Bulk pricing and shipping is also available. Call for more information.

    • Place the weight ring over the cone. Make sure it is properly placed just below the second row of holes. You will need to add additional weight if the tree is to be placed in areas with a strong current or flow.
    • Start pushing the limbs into the drilled holes. You want the limbs to extend past the inside of the dome by about one inch.
    • Twist the limbs so they curve upward in a random pattern.
      • Helpful hint: Since no glue is required, the limbs are designed to have a bit of a tight fit. Dipping the end of the limbs into a bucket of soapy water will help them slide in easier.

  • 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.
