CULLMAN, Ala. – Eighty-five MossBack artificial structures were installed at Duck River Reservoir in Cullman, Alabama, on Wednesday. The Major League Fishing Fisheries Management Division (FMD) joined forces with Berkley Labs to host the Minn Kota Habitat Restoration Project supported by Mercury Marine and MossBack Fish Habitat.

The structures were assembled by a large team of passionate anglers, including: Tackle Warehouse Pro Circuit anglers Evan Barns, Greg Bohannon, Bill McDonald, and James Niggemeyer; MLF Executive Vice President and General Manager Kathy Fennel; MLF Vice President of Operations Dave Washburn; MLF FMD Director Steven Bardin; MLF co-founder Gary Klein; Aqua Services Inc., and volunteers from the Union Sportsmen’s Alliance.

The City of Cullman showed its support and appreciation for the project by having Mayor Woody Jacobs, Director of the Cullman Economic Development Agency Dale Greer, Utilities Board Manager Allison Bright, Utilities Board Water Treatment Plant Manager Brian Styles, Utilities Board Reservoir Manager Tim Scott and Lowes Cullman Operations Manager Zach Lee in attendance for the project. Lowes Cullman donated the materials needed to anchor each habitat.

The habitats were deployed by the volunteers with the assistance of Aqua Services in seven predetermined locations throughout Duck River Reservoir. Exact locations for all seven areas will be provided on the Duck River Reservoir website in the coming days.

The next MLF FMD Minn Kota Habitat Restoration Project will be supported by Berkley Labs and take place June 4 at Lake Chickamauga.
