Got these baskets (about 13" diameter) from the Dollar Store. Put some glue on the tops and grabbed some rocks from the property. Also wadded up some balls of chicken wire to put inside the baskets. Made 24 of them for about $30.00. And there is a picture of a dead turtle for you also. And a very hungry LMB.

Update: Decided to cut slits in the middle rows of holes and shove a board (cedar shake)through for added minnow happiness. Will update with a picture when I get the boards in there.

Neat idea


It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.

A few years ago I used baskets like yours but put a big rock inside and then tied another basket upside down rim to rim on the first one. I used to see a LMB that seemed to spawn on the sucken top of the basket.

Those are indeed laundry baskets, but for gnomes. Throws everything out of perspective, understandibly.
