It's been in the twenties recently here in Dallas, but wont stay cold long.
Also are Threadfins something you add every year to keep up with predation?
I add tilapia, but maybe I should also add Threadfins?

I swear every time it goes 3-4 days with no rain and they get ready to start burning it rains again. If we douse everything in gasoline will it still burn through a down pour? Had debris piles for almost a month now but havent been able to burn any of it cause of rain.

Take a large wad of burlap bags soaked in Kerosine or Diesel and shove it in the bottom of the piles. It WILL burn.

I am hoping that this was just a tongue-in-cheek question, thomasmgp. The LAST thing you want to do is use gasoline to start a fire like that! There are plenty here who will share that sentiment, including some professional firefighters and medical professionals. The kerosene idea offered is certainly more viable. I have also heard that spraying diesel fuel out of a hand pump type sprayer, and concentrating the stream in one specific spot till it's really cranking, will start a fire on any flammable material and that will not go out in rainy weather. PLEASE don't even consider gasoline as a means of starting your fire!

I second Todd's suggestion. We use diesel fuel. Not only is it safer, but much more effective. Gasoline will be gone in mere seconds, likely not even igniting your pile, while diesel will persist long enough to get your burn started.

Don't use old "white" stove fuel either. I thought it would be a great idea to dispose of it, but it wound up blowing half my hillside up, and scattered my pile of brush everywhere. Those fumes can creep like nobody's business! Yes, I was standing in the middle of it when I lit it. Best bass note EVER. I managed to be OK apart from being rather startled. I was clothed well so I was protected.

I have a scary white-gas story also. Nobody was hurt, but that stuff is dangerous.

Dad was a fireman. He was told that a gallon of gas was equal to 1 stick of dynamite in explosive properties.

Diesel is the way to go. I use the pump up sprayer method.

I dont think holding water will be a problem.





Dug those yesterday. Deer seem to love it. Tracks all up and down the bank guess they love some fresh ground water
