    Whatever you do, do not put anything in the well, it will just complicate the fishing efforts.

    What are you using to pull it with? Do you have a powered hoist etc?

    Default gotter done

    yes we have a 3700 lb wench so we are so careful not to pull to hard . thanks for your reply we were able to free it up by pumping 1000gal of water from the top of the casing past the pump. The pump was still working so we was able to suck the water past the top of the pump to free it up. I think the problem was at the water line.
