    Shallow-water brush pile


    Could you help to make clear this sentense:

    We conjure memories of dogwoods blooming along the lakeshore as crappies are pulled one after another from a shallow-water brush pile.

    What does "brush pile" mean in the sentence?
    I've looked up the meanings in the e-dictionary but still no variants.

    Re: Shallow-water brush pile

    "shallow water brush pile" is a descirption of the shore line of the lake.

    The fish hide in these weed beds.

    The sentence is telling you where the fish are caught ("pulled" from.)
