The Honey Hole
Submerged vegetation is valuable as habitat for predatory species like Bass and forage species like Bluegill. If you manage a reservoir or some other larger body of water, The Honey Hole is a great way to provide similar features of submerged vegetation without the concern that it will take over your system or degrade over time. That’s because The Honey Hole integrates tamper-resistant features and construction to diminish habitat alteration or theft, and minimize lost lures.
- Flexible, buoyant leaves deflect hooks and minimize lost tackle.
- The self-righting design makes installation easy.
- Tamper-resistant features and construction diminish habitat loss from alteration and theft.
Like all the Honey Hole Live Series artificial fish habitat, The Honey Hole is made of High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) and is very easy to deploy, even though it is one of our largest fish structures. The Honey Hole requires some assembly, but then, even weighted, you just toss it from your boat, and it is ready to go. With dual color variation flexible leaves, it replicates the structural complexity and dynamic movement of natural cover but without degradation. That means you’ll be able to find this structure using a depth finder, making it easier to find your honey hole season after season..
The Honey Hole was designed to provide fish habitat in aging reservoirs or other large bodies of water.
The Honey Hole was specifically designed by Pond King’s fisheries biologists to provide fish habitat in aging lakes, reservoirs and other larger bodies of water … like Lake Fork, Texas. Fork, impounded in 1980, was losing natural habitat which is important for bass production and, consequently, anglers. In 2018, working with Lake Fork Sportsman’s Association, Texas Parks and Wildlife, and Friends of Reservoirs, Pond King donated and installed 20 Honey Holes to replace the lake’s degraded woody structure and enhance its littoral (shoreline) habitat. Watch as 20 Honey Holes get deployed on Lake Fork.

- 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 over time 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.
