Bing, Don't scare us like this. Don't let it slow you down. My crazy brother is about the same age as you are, but he led a far unhealthier life than you probably even ever dreamed about. It took three heart attacks and a multi-bypass several ye

You have come to the right place Mark, there is so much here it will take a very long time to get thru it all. I have been running thru all I can as I get ready for an other new season. I think I enjoy the reading here almost as much as I do playing

This is my first post here and maybe a little lengthy. I fish in a private lake, 130 acres. I pretty much have it to myself. It was drained and restocked in January of 2013. At that time all remaining fish were killed for a true restart. It was

FYI a 3/8" threaded nipple can serve as a 5/8" hose barb because the OD of a 3/8" nipple is 5/8".

The pump outlet assembly should have a low pressure gauge and for pump insurance,,, a pressure relief valve (I prefer an adjustable type that I usually set at 15psi). PRV protects the pump; the most expensive part of the whole system. Air gauge allo

I’ve been reading on this forum for quite awhile trying to learn a few things. There is a ton of valuable info here. Hope to learn even more and just maybe I can chip in with a little info myself. Thanks htbboats

Good to know. Maybe I could have gotten away with 50#. My intention is to not worry about it for a couple years, or until the water becomes an issue again. The big plus right now is tonight the fish fed normally after a few days of being 'off'. I

Video that shows what I am seeing. This is just a random scoop of water. The entire pond is like this. Close up pic also attached. Pretty sure these are daphnia but can someone confirm?

That is the part of the tag that has the number on it.. If cut off, a person would not have information on individual fish.

Not real scientific, but I test throw fish food to find the current preferred food size. IIRC, a red plastic solo cup holds 7oz (give or take a few grams) of Cargill fish food regardless of the pellet sizes. I'll mix 2 sizes in the cup, throw the fo

Our border collie will happily run them off, but the pond isn't inside the fenced yard. She almost always goes with me to the pond, and had some fun the other day running off some determined geese.

Mine isn't the worlds sharpest but I did clean it with alcohol a few times after tagging fish. The next fish I tag will have the large tab cut off the end of the plastic tag so they don't collect FA like shown in the picture. It is inevitable you'r

I've seen what CMM described around old fishing hook wounds too. The needles in the tag guns are replaceable, so retiring them after multiple tags might be a good idea. I would think the insertion site would get more inflamed with older duller ne

From the pump to the poly line you will need a 1/4” male npt x 1/2” barbed fittingand for the 1/2” hose to 5/8 hose you will need a 5/8 x 1/2” barbed coupler Goggle these things and it should put you in the right direction

"Popeye" is actually the common name for exophthalmia (from my old fish aquarium days). I assume you know this or you accidentally guessed it by the fish's appearance. I don't think it is actually caught or contagious, but more of a sympt
