I picked up four large plastic culverts that are 48” in diameter and 4-6’ long each. I got three damaged sections for free off a jobsite. I have a pond build going on right now and I would like to put them in the pond for structure for largemouth bass, crappie and baitfish.

I think I need to cut holes in the culvert to keep it sum-merged. What would be the best way to set them up? Horizontal, vertical, maybe cut them in half to make them moon shape? Maybe drill holes in them and add 3/4” pvc to make more cover???? I’m up for ideas. I saw a lot of structure picture ideas but not a lot with big plastic culvert.

Attached is a picture of what I got. Thanks
