The bigger one the other day? If I had to guess. Id say 27 or 28 I don't put them on the scale unless I think they are 35 or bigger. The one in your picture is a Beautiful King! 40lb hog or bigger no doubt!
When I had my skiff built in 2013 I hooked about a 35 pounder on her maiden voyage! Unfortunately our landing net was only big enough for silvers. After about three or four attempts to net the big king. The fish just flopping out of the net every time. The leader finally parted and all we could do was watch it slowly swim back down as the color faded away! My fishing partner was pretty bummed out and felt bad. Heck, we were both bummed out! I told him it wasn't his fault. We both did all we could to net the fish and the net was simply just to small. He went to the Marine supply store the next day and bought the biggest landing net they had. About three days later while fishing a King tournament. My boat had three Kings hit her deck! All of them huge soaker hogs!!! A 50lb, a 56lb, and a 65lb fish! Winning us the tournament by a land slide! We crushed it! 171lbs between three King Salmon! No other boat even came close that tournament! I'll post a picture for ya as soon as I get a chance to skiff back home from camp for supply's on one of my days off. Unfortunately, the pics are at home on my other phone. Seems these days the big soaker kings are hitting Kingsman boat decks around here
Ah, so a pump would be needed unless the spring’s pressure is enough to compensate And that would be a stretch. the Romans figured this out future project?The spring flows out of a small cave in a rock wall close to the lowest spot on the property. It's a long ways and all uphill to the cabin.
Just give it time! Had the right side done a couple years ago.Hernia surgery (right side this time, left was done about 30 years ago).
Broke down and took two extra strength Tylenol today, which reduced the discomfort a bit.
Have 3 black + blues, the one for the scope through the belly button is by far the worst.
I'm fine until I have to get up from the chair or out of the bed, and for some reason my left knee started acting up!
Luckily there is no pain lying down or sitting and walking and stairs are no problem. But putting sox on gets a little painful!
My brother cautioned me to go slow ... my father (who was very stubborn) had to have his re-done twice more after the initial operation - I don't want that!
On the other end of the scale, I get worried that I can't do the exercises for my back every morning. It is like a catch 22! And I hate being a couch potato!
This recovery is going slower than I expected. It is improving, but very slowly ... I was expecting more from the laparoscopic procedure.Just give it time! Had the right side done a couple years ago.
even now I have to pay attention to my body doing any heavy lifting. I’m getting pretty good at listening to the , “O hell no!” Cry, lol
We are hoping for a full recovery and that it heals faster than expected. Hang in there.This recovery is going slower than I expected. It is improving, but very slowly ... I was expecting more from the laparoscopic procedure.
Still have a black and blue that looks like someone tattooed a large Violet on my naval and some swelling and pain when I sit up.
I've been cautioned to wait 3 weeks for internal stuff to heal. Don't want to have to go through it again ... that's for sure!
This is putting a damper on my summer, but I'm planning on being good for hunting season. I need to be 100% by then, as I like to hunt some rugged areas, and not all of them have cell phone service if something goes wrong.
There is a "clean water spring" just off the border of my upstate property also, but it is at the lowest point of my property and down a very steep hill, you have to be very careful climbing it with the ATV as your front will start to come up, so it just makes more sense to bring water from home.Based on what I have learned about them there may be enough flow, but not enough drop. It takes 1 foot of drop to raise the water 10 feet with a properly sized ram pump.
Mine flows year around also at 45 degrees. Could use it for ACThere is a "clean water spring" just off the border of my upstate property also, but it is at the lowest point of my property and down a very steep hill, you have to be very careful climbing it with the ATV as your front will start to come up, so it just makes more sense to bring water from home.
That said, it is good to know that it is there in case of emergency. When they used to quarry the Bluestone, they would test it every year and it was always good. Also, I have never seen when it does not flow.
