Honey Hole Spawning Discs

$99.00

Improve Hatching Sucess

If you have a pond with multiple species that are dependent on each other for growth, then successful reproduction is key to a self-sustaining fishery. Bluegill and Redear are especially important to forage production that feeds top predators like Bass, Crappie, and Catfish, and both build disc-shaped nests in shallow water to spawn. Unfortunately, most earthen ponds have 2-12 inches of silt that smothers the eggs soon after they are laid. A popular solution is to add pea gravel to provide a hard bottom for nest building but this process is expensive and over time the gravel can be silted over or eroded out of the spawning zone. Luckily, the Honey Hole Spawning Discs are a very durable, affordable alternative.

Fast Assembly

I just bought a set of 12 disc along with value pack #4 and other habitat. Dissc are very sturdy & fast assembly & a pilot hole already pre-drilled in the pvc allowed the screw to easily go in. I know these will help my pond long term for easier spawning.

Thank you, Kavin. Sounds like you are going to have quite the bass fishery! We'd love to see pictures. Thanks again.

Enhance the Recruitment of Nesting Species

 Honey Hole Spawning Discs provide a stable, solid surface for Bluegill, Redear, Bass, and Crappie to deposit their eggs. Also, other forage fish including Fatheads and Threadfin Shad will use the underside of the disc to attach their eggs. When the fry hatch, they will have a ready supply of algae that will grow around the edges and beneath the disc. Just one successful spawn will produce more than enough added value in fish to pay for the Honey Hole Spawning Disc.

Habitat for Early Life Stages in Shallow Water

Each Honey Hole Spawning Disc is a 20 inch, concave poly disc that is elevated off the bottom of the pond. If you have a pond with a pretty firm base, you'll want to use the Honey Hole Spawning Disc with Stake option. This includes a 9-inch PVC stake for each disc that will keep the disc elevated. However, if your pond has a very silty or sandy bottom, or you have some sort of liner, you'll want to choose the Spawning Disc with Weight Option. The Weight Bracket easily attaches to the Spawning Disc, keeping your Disc in place, about 7 inches off the pond bottom.

Honey Hole Disc Artificial Fish Habitat

We recommend adding up to 24 discs per acre in groups of 3 to 8. If your spawning area is limited, use larger groups of discs. Honey Hole Spawning Disc is ideal for enhancing the recruitment of nesting species.

  • Increase pre-hatch survivorship by keeping eggs free from silt.
