Unexplained Mystery

Recommended Posts

gunflint

As I was going through my tackle bag getting it organized for the play offs, (post turnover) my plan was to spend a few minutes weeding out the summer stuff like, crawler harnesses, slip bobber rigs, etc. When I noticed that my bag is'nt as well oraganized as it was in early may.

The only possible explanation is that someone is breaking into my bag and messing it up. Has anyone else noticed this?

I actually had a good year this summer. My son never left the tackle box open in the rain once this summer. He has done this every year as long as I can remember. He is fifteen now and starting to realize things cost money.

I to have noticed this, My plastic box was full of gulps and now I find empty plastic containers, And I do find the gulps in the far corners of my boat, I think that they have been crawling out and trying to escape. But I have notice that I started off with one can of bug repellent and now have four. Somehow three umbrals have made it into the rod storage area and I find that my live well has a very fishy smell to it. I'm sure it was not like that in the spring smirk.gif

I think I have Gremlins from all over the state leaving odds and ends of tackle all over my boxes and boat. Dang Crappie Gremlin left 1/16th oz. jigs in my spoons and the eye gremlins left cranks in my looper boxes.

Oh well Ill fix them guys up real good come the pre freeze up period.

I've had those gremlins too. They live in the lake, I know that for sure as sometimes they take stuff from me while I'm using it. Greedy little..... wink.gif

Those Gremlins!

They take stuff out of my tackle box and hide it in my son's tackle box.

Weird huh.... confused.gif

I wish I had gremlins in my tackle box.

The last 8 weekends have been full of other "things" (honey-do's I think is what they are called), and the next 6 look about the same. Today was an open day and I just winterized the boat. I was very disappointed that my tackle bag was organized and things were in their right places in the boat. That's down right depressing

Your bag has old man disease.

Many, many years ago, my neighbor in a duplex was a very old retired lady. I worked second shift at the time and occasionally would go home for dinner break. One night, I got there and several police cars were parked around the place. Seems the old gal called the cops to report that someone had come in and was moving things around in her fridge.

      Next time you give it a try. Take a flash light and look up to make sure the throttle flapper is returning to the closed position when you let off the gas and it dies. I have had them stick open or half open then your more or less trying to restart it at half or full throttle which may just be flooding it out. It's either starving for gas or flooding.  Let us know if you solve it.  Good Luck.

      I never fished north of Wahpeton. When I fished down there I'd go south. There's normally some walleye biting early in the year south of the main road through town. I don't know how it would be this time of year. I always fished it first ice because that was usually fishable before most lakes. If you do go out I'd recommend bringing someone along and having a chisel along to check ice. That river ice can be very inconsistent.

      I ordered a rebuild kit from amazon for less than $5.00, so hopefully that will help.  YouTube has some videos on installing it.  It is an odd thing, if it sits for a while it will start and I can run it.  Once I take it off full throttle, it will die and I can't get it to restart.  Thanks for the posts so far, I appreciate it.

      Anyone ever fish this lake? Buddy of mine wants to try it?

      For cleaning carbs I use Gumout spray with the tube on it to shoot through all the passage ways. If I'm finding one not flowing well or clogged I like to use a gas welding tip cleaner. There are a lot of sizes and you don't have to jam something to big through it which could widen and ruin the flow. I got a nice pretty new little chain saw from a guy who just could not get it running for Free. Found that no spray would go through the main jet when I was cleaning the carb. Used the tip cleaner to knock out a piece of saw dust, and clear our Deer trails out really nice this year! Like Wanderer and Borch said, rebuild kits are cheap and a good thing to do if it's been gummed up.  p.s those little piss-ant needle flow valve springs are really fun to get back in place with fat fingers! They like to jump off the work bench and hide!!

      Sounds fun Jeff!, The way the ice has set up this year maybe it will happen after all. I would like to start getting a few prizes together for Biggest Cat, and also a kids division. Hopefully someone can bring a few good ones to the scales...

      @donethat Where is this access you speak of?  I’m not familiar with “bullhead bay”.  Is there a problem with people trespassing? The access I was referring to last year looked pretty public to me.
    • Borch
      Carb kit may help.  It's plugged or gasket/diaphragm dried out or cracked.  Alternating between choke and open when running will sometimes help if diaphram.

      Anything new that way?  I was kicking around the idea of fishing Fish Trap this weekend but went elsewhere in the area.  Been finding 14-15 inches regularly.

      Get some sea foam in that gas tank and run ‘er!  I can’t tell you exactly where it’s gummed up, but it is.  It’ll take a tank and maybe two but it should clear up. Or, take the carb back off soak it and clean every oriface you can find by poking and blowing compressed air through all the holes.  Put a new carb kit on it and reinstall. Whichever way you prefer should work. Mix your gas with 100:1 Amsoil next time, especially if you let it sit with gas in it over the summer.  I run about 75:1 and have gotten away without gummed up carbs when forgetting to clear the gas from last year - like today.  First day starting the gas auger.  I found out it wasn’t stores empty like I normally do. Took about 10 pulls but she came around and did fine on the lake today.  I WAS annoyed to find gas in it but I have no one to blame but me.
