Ride the mighty Mississippi! That sounds like a ride report in the making.
I hear the fishing is really good right now, as just about everything is biting. I'm thinking a ride to the river may be just what I need.

Gotcha Gus, I've seen the small store battery backups, I've just never seen one like your 1,000,000 Gigawatt model!

I had a whole home surge protector installed recently, and still use the surge protectors I already had on my equipment.

Good plan........

You prolly have much more reliable power at your place too. So surge protection is higher up the priority list for you I would think.....

Down at Petit Jean, beofre they replace a lot of power line wire and cleared ROW, our power made it like a disco club with our lights some days......... :::: grump ::::::

Been a bit of a problem here also with the lightning strikes, not out long, 30 seconds at most so far, but happening more often than I like.....

Yes our power has been pretty reliable. I recall a time not too long ago that it did fluctuate alot. Lights would get wonky and dim quite a few times a day etc.

You should check into the whole home surge with as much electronics as you have, I think it was under $200 installed. It goes outside right on the meter, takes an electrician all of 20 minutes. If you ever need an electrician lemme know, I have been using a veteran Harley rider such as yourself, you guys would hit it off.

Water temp getting to warm will cause the dissolved oxygen level to go down. Fish suffocate. Need to aerate. If nothing else just use a boat motor and spray the water up in the air. Depends on how big and deep it is too.

IM not sure Teds pond is deep enough to stratify, but IM betting some areation would help.

a buddy in west fork , has a large bubbler in his pond, and he fishes directly on top of it, says the fish congregate around it.

plus, it looks like doc is underwater 24 hours a day there.

Getting the hang of this pic thing. Riding this thing around the Mill Creek area would make a man out of you... maybe that's what we need to do to the kid.

Shallow is bad. Water loses its ability to hold O2 the warmer it gets. When we treat waste water for discharge we have to re-aerate to a higher level in the summer because of that.

We have an air pump built onto the windmill that aerates the pond, and we have a fountain but the water level has gotten low enough we cant run the fountain. Hope we get some rain soon!

I don't know but it sure seems that we have alot more, and more violent, lightning strikes than we did when I was a kid.
