poor light from Humpfrey gas lights

Question

Big Walleye 58

Anyone have any idea what may cause poor light from LP gas lights in cabin ? Lights run off of a 100# tank which is full .Can adjust regulator and it has no effect on quality of light .All lights work about the same so I don't think that it is plugged orifices. Over time is it possible that is some substance in the LP that could build up in the copper lines ? Thank you for any help or ideas .

Wish I knew the answer. Have the same problem at our deer shack. Try cleaning the gas oriface with a small piece of wire or a welding tip cleaner. This has worked on some of ours. Spider webs in the main throat are bad too.

take the globe off, take, the mantle off, the white nozzle will unscrew. Unscrew it and dump out any carbon and clean it up. There is a small screen in the nozzle too you can clean that up. Also you can undo the three screws on the sides that hold the whole light assmebly pull it off and there is the orfice there clean it up reassemble everything put a clean mantle on and you should be good to go. Good luck with it.

make sure your using the larger mantles that are for gas lights. I had to use the small ones for lanterns in a pinch and there was a huge differance. good luck!

      When we go to Quetico, barbless or mashed down barbs is mandatory.   To tell the truth I haven't noticed that we lose more fish with barbless than barbed.   Not catching muskies though.  Pike, walleye, bass, lake trout.

      Vermilion might be down a little, but not much.  Your lakes might be different.

      Is that a gulp worm?  I am not on Osakis but cant fish with live bait without the bass, sunnies, and perch hammering it instantly.

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?
