Big Walleye 58

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!

      In Aitkin now; getting a slow start this morning.  No problem there, it’s a day bite for the most part.   Yesterday I checked one of those two hit list lakes.  Evening into the dark.  I only picked up 2 perch, 1 gill and had one 30 inch pike to the hole 4 times before it came off when I got more aggressive to turn his head into the hole.  I started in 24 feet and worked up to 15 before connecting with anything.   What a fight though. Using a 28 inch pannie rod, 2 lb test on a 13 Descent, fishing size 16 jig and plastic.  After hooking into it and the first head shakes were done it just sat there.  I couldn’t move it for a while but could feel it finning around.  I thought, what the heck!  Did I just hook a beaver?!

      60 years ago at the age of 10, I used to read the fishing ads in Field & Stream about fishing in Minnesota.   I always said I would go one day, but as you know life and things get in the way.   Well, I'm 90% retired now and ready to make the long trip from way down south to go fishing in Minnesota, my lifelong dream.   I always wanted to go to the BWCA, but I'm simply not able now due to health problems. I can't do hiking, portaging, etc anymore.   Here's the deal....  I would love to find a small remote cabin (in Minnesota) on a small lake to stay for a week or more, next spring or summer.    I don't need anything fancy... rustic is the best for me.   I want to fish for smallmouth bass and big bluegills and I will bring my boat along too.   If any of you could recommend a small lake, with a small cabin and good fishing to rent for a week or so, I promise I will repay you somehow.   A guide would be nice for a day, or I'd gladly give one of you a nice tip and take you along in my boat fishing, as many days as you want.   Would you please help make my 60-year dream come true?  PM me if you wish.   Thanks in advance.    PS:  If the fishing is better in a spot that doesn't have cabins, I can find a place to stay elsewhere.  Good fishing is more important that a place to sleep anyway.
