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!

      Ace (or anyone for that matter), have you been able to pinpoint the conditions that bring the big smallies up shallow in the fall?  Water temp perhaps?  Moon phase? A bait connection?  We saw this happen by chance a couple of years ago, which resulted in some very large smallies coming over the rails.  Didn’t weigh the biggest but my guess was 6lbs+.     Just trying to to see if this shallow movement can be predicted.    Brian

      Deep weed edges have produced crappie during the transition period, before the water gets in the 50s. Rigging or jigging chubs have been a standard tactic for walleye this time of year. If your noticing a lot of debris throughout the water column, turnover may be going on, fish a bigger body of water, they turn over a little latter. Have not been on Webb, just tips for this time of year.... Good luck!

      Try pine lake off of McFarland. Easy to get to and good size eyes. You’d need a portable fish finder though. Interesting lake for eyes. Basswood is awesome too but it’s a haul.

      Yeah, I wouldn’t be making this treck until next June. I heard from another source that it’s navigable as well, as long as water levels are normal. Thanks for the info.

      @gimruis   I’ve been accused of having too much patience many times.   My duck hunting buddy talked about people’s differing personalities and how we didn’t understand why fellow hunters weren’t more considerate.  We settled on the fact that we’ve been trained to be that naive from working in the hospitality/service industry too long! 😀   Still loving the hunting but have to change our expectations a bit

      up here on webb lake right now... anyone have any tips or suggestions?!

      Instead of going through all the hassle of mounting it in your boat before you knows if it's good. You may try duct taping the ducer to a stick to hang over the side and run some power wires to it.   You should know pretty fast if it works or not by making a few knob adjustments. Good Luck.

      I know this....not as many smallmouth coming up shallow on this fall trip as compared to spring. Could not get a top water bite regardless of time of day and depth of water.   Found a few stragglers in the few hours we chased them.
