Photo: This is a fish attractor! Artificial structures, such as this one, are used to mimic natural cover such as downed trees, submerged logs, and in some cases rocks and boulders. Fish use cover for a variety of reasons: to hide from predators, to forage (eat), and to reproduce. Predatory fish such as crappie and largemouth bass are attracted to these structures because either forage fish (bait) are using the attractors and predators are more easily able to forage or these structures provide hiding cover for predatory fish to ambush their prey as they approach the attractor.
