how many spikes in 50#s

6 posts in this topic

Here is a question that is driving me nuts - I need 325 - 12" x 3/8" Galvanized spikes - they come in 50# increments - any one know how many boxes I need

Thanks

Weigh one and multiply by 325. Divide that number by 50 and you will get a number that represents your total boxes.

problem is I do not have a spike to weigh - I ordered 4 boxes - just dont want to run out - but 200 lbs worth should go quite a ways I'm thinking.

I did a google search. Found about 133 spikes to a 50# box.

4 should be plenty

Yep, thats about right... I did a big playground project last year and If I remember right there was 125 in each 50 LB box.

      as of 12/5 on the West end many small bays were wide open. Water levels are very high in the local rivers, swamps and I am guessing the lake. It is information that I received from a relative last night.   Be safe   Steve

      No never ever caught a walleye early on the West end. Go east to catch early walleye   We have not had a good slip bobber early season walleye bite in many years. Used to be able to catch them from the docks and rock points every spring. Easy fun fishing. Now we work hard for the fish we catch. West end.   Largemouth bass, sunfish, and bullheads have been caught very regularly on slip bobbers and leeches the last 15 years. I bet they also eat walleye fry. Could possibly be a part of the missing young of the year fish in the recent fall nettings. I did not hear how fall 2016 shook out.

      Nice catch Mitch.  Those are some well fed Northerns.

      We ended up going through Tom Wilson. Pretty good price for a weekend. Now we just need ice.   http://www.leechlakeicefishing.com/fishhouse.html
