Since largemouth bass and other gamefish like to suspend around flooded vegetation, like reeds and cattails, our biologists developed the Honey Hole Reed. This fish attractor replicates riparian vegetation to help pond and lake owners attract species that suspend in dense vertical structure. The Honey Hole Reed is an effective vertical habitat for fish congregations and works especially well when deployed along drop-offs, deep bays, and creek channels. Each pack contains 2 bases with 3 stems each. Take advantage of multi-packs -- the more you buy, the more you save!

Easier to manage than naturally occurring habitat

Fish need cover. But, especially in Texas fisheries and reservoirs, there isn’t a lot of naturally occurring vegetation because these bodies of water are mostly man-made. To attract fish, you could plant riparian vegetation, but the problem with that is it can easily get out of control, creating a lot of other problems for your fishery. It is much easier to install Pond King’s Honey Hole Reed. It won’t decay and it won’t overrun your fishery.

Attract gamefish fish, repel avian predators

Standing 8’ when fully extended, The Honey Hole Reed is perfect for water depths 10-12’ deep. You can place it in clusters of isolated pockets throughout your pond or lake to provide the perfect ambush points during the spring and fall transition periods. Or the Reeds can be arranged in a line creating highways for your forage and predator species to travel back and forth. This is especially important in the winter, when a roosting flock of Cormorants could seriously deplete your fish population.

Safe for the environment

Like all Pond King artificial fish habitat, the Honey Hole Reed is manufactured using low (LDPE) and high-density polyethylene (HDPE) with UV inhibitors. Polyethylene is a biologically inert material and is the same type of plastic approved by the FDA for use in the food storage industry, so you don’t have to worry about any unwanted toxins. Unlike “natural” structure, the flexible limbs are easy to fish through, reducing the number of lures that get tangled and end up at the bottom of the lake, decaying or creating unintended hazards to wildlife.

More Details

Inside each pack of Honey Hole Reed, you’ll receive: 
  • (2) 8”x8” galvanized bases, each with 3-cylindrical clusters
  • (6) Honey Hole Grass Stems for a total of 120 "leaves" 

When you order artificial fish habitat online, it will be shipped to you in boxes via Ground Shipping and the fees are calculated at checkout. Typically, it takes less than a week for us to process your order for shipping from our facility in Lindsay, Texas. When it does, you’ll receive a confirmation email including your tracking number. 

All of Pond King’s artificial fish habitat carries a 10 year limited warranty on any manufacturer defects. While we stand behind our products, we aren't obligated to replace parts that are misused (eaten by otters, beavers, snapping turtles, stolen or tampered with) or damaged due to normal wear and tear. But we love a good story so if any of the above applies to you, shoot us an email (with pictures, please) to let us know what happened. 

The Honey Hole Reed doesn’t require any assembly, but to maximize the coverage area, spread the leaves apart by folding them backward against each limb. The Reed is self-righting, so just toss it into water 10 to 12-feet deep and watch it sink.

Fish need 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 fisheries 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 (the species that use habitat to hide from predation).
Our artificial fish habitat is designed for pond and lake owners to help with fish population management without a lot of vegetation control. Natural vegetation can be difficult to control for two primary reasons; Vegetation can take over the environment, Structure can, and almost always does, decay. For those reasons, it’s not always 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, doesn’t decay, and you can find it using your fish finder, so locating your honey hole season after season is a snap.
The Honey Hole Grass, Reed and Dock Dropper 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!
Absolutely not! The Honey Hole, and the Honey Hole Reed, Brush, Shrub, Tree 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.
Pond King’s 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!
Our artificial fish habitat has a higher-than average limb count which results in a lot more surface area for the accumulation of periphyton. Plus, the materials we use to make our habitat are biologically inert, so they aren’t just safe for your pond today, they are safe for the life of the product.
Honey Hole Products Other Artificial Fish Habitat
  • HDPE with added UV inhibitor is highly resistant to degradation from exposure to sunlight, temperature extremes, and acidic or alkaline 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 of PVC is not "green." The release of dioxin - a persistent and highly toxic chemical - occurs during synthesis and incineration.  
  • HDPE is sourced from recycling 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.
