Almost a catastrophy

Recommended Posts

If you use a Humphrey gas light read this. My buddy who is in a fish house on millacs ( 20 yards from mine ) Woke up because sassy (his yellow lab) was whining at the door to go outside. It was 3:30 am. He lets her out and turns on the gas light til he lets her in. He lays down and accidently falls asleep again. Anyway he wakes up to her barking loudly at the door outside. He looks and sees the wall and ceiling on fire by the gas light! He drowns the fire with multiple scoops of water from a hole. It had already burnt through the paneling on the wall and ceiling. A minute later and He might have been toast. In the morning he comes over to my house and tells me about it. Man I couldnt believe it. He's had a gas light there for years with no problem. I took the wall plate cover off it and I could see where it started at the orfice inside it. I dont know how the flame backed up through the neck and started a fire at the pilot. It goes without saying that Sassy is a hero.

Anyone else ever have a problem like this? I dont think I would consider putting one in my house now.

    • Watch their interference disappear when you shut your marcum off 🤨
    • Rick was going to start that topic right after this one slowed down! 😅
    • Don't be fooled by stainless cables. Take proper care of them and change them every few years.Do your pivots every couple years too.
    • Might as well get augers in on this too!
    • Just counted 14 of them under and on my feeder. Cardinals, Nuthatches, Juncos, and asst sparrows came in and they chased them all away. It's like one stands guard and chase everything off. Sorry guys, time has come to start thinning the blue rats out!

    • nope..........havent graduated to posting meme's yet!!!!!!!!!
    • Have a marcum LX9 also use a couple Lowrance units. After using them side by side there are features I like on both but just comparing sonar units I'd have to say that my lowrance units squeak out a win for me over the Marcum. Both are very close to the same performance. The Marcum is much easier to just plop and fish where the lowrance units you have to dial in for each situation. I've never been a traditional flasher guy and never see the need to after using a graph.
    • Yep put mine away this past Saturday. I haven't used it since August. I wanted to park my truck inside instead and I would rather hunt then fish anyways...
    • Go to Milaca unclaimed Freight and for the pulley 8to 1 lift. Cheap and easy
