Fishing Club Event - Artificial Fish Habitats - August 2017 - Ken Harris

On Tuesday morning, August 22, 2017, members of the Del Webb Fishing Club gathered for the purpose of the construction and placement of several dozen Artificial Fish Habitats in Lake Providence which will provide a place for fish to lay eggs, raise young, and provide protection from danger, amongst many other positive benefits.


The Club Members divided the work among several teams, with some drilling and cutting the bucket holes while another team cut the plastic tubing for the "porcupine spikes". The prepared parts were then moved to the construction table where another team assembled everything. Once assembled, the Fish Habitats were transported to the lake shoreline where  they were loaded onto the boat to be submerged in strategic prime locations along the lake bottom.


These guys came together in a fashion which would rival a GM assembly plant, completing the construction, assembly, and distribution of dozens of Fish Habitats throughout the lake in about an hour and a half - an amazing feat considering that the job was originally predicted to take about four hours.  (Even more amazing, out of the dozens of Fish Habitats assembled, there was only one unit that did not meet  quality control standards!)
