Honey Hole Tree
Bass and crappie anglers love the Honey Hole Tree because it 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.
- Gamefish find and hold onto this structure immediately
- Safe for the environment and easy to install
- Will not rot, never needs to be replaced - a great investment in your pond
The Honey Hole Tree artificial fish habitat is best utilized in water that is 6 ft. deep or deeper.
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 ft. The Honey Hole Tree is the only artificial fish habitat on the market that can be suspended from the bottom.
For each Honey Hole Tree ordered, you will receive: (1) Slotted Cone Base, (93) 36” Limbs, (1) Steel Weight Ring, (1) Eye Bolt

- Watch the assembly video
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
