Last Tuesday we added a chain of attractors (50 in all) to the lake making a grand total of 115. Thanks to the Tellico Ranger Station, paticularly to rangers Mary, Rusty, Bo and Robert for your help and support in the project.

The basic attractor is made from a brick, rope and plastic conduit under a bucket lid having 4 small blocks of styrofoam under the lid to keep it upright. It's about 18 inches from the bottom of the brick to the top of the lid. Should you accidentally hook one and haul it up, kindly look it over and then please return it to the water in the area in which you caught it. They are very effective and inexpensive to make.

If you would like detailed directions on making them you can contact me at [email protected]

The first 75 attractors were planted in clusters of 5 to 10, and the most recent 50 are planted in a general chain, somewhat irregularly spaced. The top of each is spray painted in a camo type pattern and they are visible on a bright day in clearwater conditions. The lids came from the Maryville Wal Mart Bakery, Thanks to them also for their willing support.

Good Fishing, Mac

The Boundary is a great little lake. Thanks for your time setting these up to improve the fish habitat there.
