GFI Problem

I have a pond pump that is 300 watts. The Ground Fault tripped last night. I reset it and it would not hold. I ran a 50 ft extension to another plug on the same GFI and it stays on but when I pluged this extension in the original plug it tripped again. What's happening?

Sounds like you have a real ground fault at the pump.

I'm not sure what you mean by "to another plug on the same GFI," but I'd guess that this plug isn't really GFI protected. Have you tested this other plug with a GFI tester?
