Underwater photos/films/videos are a great learning tool. Skunks should be a never or only once learning experience.

The first time my dog "learned" about skunks put him in the kennel (under his own choice) for three days. He thought he was dying! Since then he's been addicted to the stink and does not pass up a chance to get hit again. I think he likes it now. Luckily it's always been warmer weather and he can be left outside...no shop-time during stink-time.

nbell, yes. Thats the formula I use and it's pretty good. Just stocked up on a truck kit for when it happens again.
My old Lab seemed to like the smell. He was definitely proud of himself everytime...

Eric, I'm thinking once the cedar highways are in place, run a wire the entire length and drag the gopro down the line using string. Kinda like filming football games! Less disturbance than the boat.

An old trick my dad taught me if you had a dog that chased skunks was this. This was done to hunting dogs because it would really ruin a night of hunting if the dogs went for skunk. you may have to improvise but....Get one of those old time wooden barrels get a skunk that stinks and place the dog and the skunk in the barrel and put the lid on. Be nice and put some vent holes in the barrel for O2. Lay the barrel on its side and roll it back and for in the back yard which will make the dog sick. The dog will then equate the sick feeling with the skunk and the smell. Worked for us many times.

Mfitz...You can PM your address to me and the next time he comes home stinking to high heaven...I'll ship'em to you (in a barrel), you supply the live skunk), but I want video proof of services rendered. I won't post the video, I swear! LOL

Well it works no joke. That's why you do it in your back yard so your neighbors don't laugh at you.LOL

Sorry this is late as I missed the request.

The test result is for soil (growing plants) not water. They are related but stated differently. The water mostly replicates the surrounding soil but nutrients in water are processed differently. Water will dissolve most elements (not all) so you have a big slurry. Soil nutrients are not all available to land plants as they cant dissolve and move around the same.

I am not a land plant soil expert by any stretch. It looks like the soil is good for Ca and other items but a little low on N and P. Most waters are low on P as is reflected in most pond fertilizers which are high P (0-45-0 , 8-42-6 ). The soil is designated moderately alkaline (base - like a high alkalinity #) that is why they have suggested some S to offset the base soil.

Yesterday we placed 10 cedar trees down almost the entire length of the dam using barbless fence wire as a cable. It worked but took longer than anticipated.
Tested pH, salinity, acidity etc. All within recommended levels. My friend is going to clean up his notes and send the results. Surface temp 61. Bottom 48.
The fish were really active a few hours after the commotion stopped.
We only expected a small "stock tank" when we purchased the property so all of this is very exciting and educational!
