      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Is this a dumb question?

How much does an 11 pound propane tank weight? Is it 11 pounds with the tank? or just 11 pounds of gas? I'm looking for total weight with a full tank.

Thanks!

All I know is 20# tanks hold 20# of gas, and so on for 100, 10, etc.

I've never heard of an 11# tank. Where's that number come from???

The actual tank weight should be stamped onto the tank so they know when they are full,that is why they put them on a scale,for instance if a 100 lb tank weighs 30 lb emty it would be 130 lb full

there are no stupid questions just non intelligent ones smile.gif that is a good ? though, does 13#'s of gas actually weigh 13#'s in weight smile.gif
i donno those 20 pound tanks weigh a ton though, my guess is they are way over 20 when filled. empty they are pretty light. put one on the bathroom scale and find out, n post what the results are.

An 11 lb tank holds 11 lbs of LP.
Tanks are filled by weight.
Thats why/how they dont get over filled.
Did you ever see a tank filled?
Its sittin on a scale.
Your empty tank has the weight on it.
So If you have a half full tank and you have it filled they can calculate how much LP to top it off.
So I fill my own tanks at .79 cents a gallon cost me under $2 to fill it a 11 lber.

Seabass, ST is getting you right on track, all tanks have the weight stamped on the tanks, WC is the water capacity weight, they fill them with water to test them, TW is the tare weight(empty), and yes an 11 pounder holds 11 pounds of gas, so when it's full it should weigh the TW plus what ever size it is.Today all new tanks come with the over fill valves so they can't be filled above the eighty percent level, the old valves didn't have the float shut off and could be filled full. All tanks are only filled to eighty percent level to allow for expansion,so with the old style valve if they were filled above the eighty percent level and warmed up to much the spring loaded pop off valve could release gas and if this happened in an enclosed area it often led to explosions. So as ST said if you watch someone fill your tank they will weigh it while filling and the weight on the scale will be TW plus the size of you tank plus the weight of the valve on the fill hose. hope this helps.
tight lines to all. <((((><

I always wondered why 100 pounds of LP weighed so much. I have two, one hundred pound tanks.
One weighs 82 pounds and the other weighs 88 pounds empty. Now add in the liquid petrolem and you have yourself an average sized human.
I also have a couple of 60 pound tanks that weigh 42 lbs and 44 lbs. Much easier to handle.
Good Luck...

Useless information: 20 lbs of propane = 4.8 galons (+/-)!!!!!

I worked at a bait shop for 4 years when I was young.

    • To answer your question, at peak eclipse I measured 3500 LUX outside, which is brighter than thick clouds. To fish, what happened today was a typical cloud moved in front of the sun.
    • I did, but didn't find anything. Not sure I am doing a proper keyword search however. I believe it is called a termination cap. 
    • So, what is your training that makes you more of an expert than the Cardiac Rehab center of the Mayo Clinic?   You got the 6 week certificate in sales from the Chiropractic Institute?   Seriously, do you have a degree in a health field?  Have you even had any serious scientific training in any field?  Last I recall, didn't you work selling gadgets to Chiropractors or something?  I know you are a big fan of the subluxations and spinal adjustments to cure cancer and diabetes and prevent autism as touted by straight chiropractors.   
    • Here's some footage from the last couple weeks in central and northern WI. Gotta work at it to find the big ones, but managed to find some nice ones lately!  
    • Yup. Like a shopping cart.  
    • Well, being you are not engaging your hamstrings on that treadmill, and you're TRAINING on it!!, you can pretty much guarantee your feet sliding out from underneath you, slipping on the ice next time you encounter it.  Thank you treadmill, best piece of equipment in the gym, for an orthopedic surgeon.   Let me guess, you like to walk slow on it, so its good for you.....?  
    • Thanks RD!  Good info. That's an interesting technique with the Chatterbait.  I will try it.  If you don't mind -- what kind of trailer do you like with the Chatterbait for that technique?  There will be 3 of us fishing so it will a little tight.  Probably will only bring 3 rods...  I am thinking a Jig rod, T-rig rod (plan to try a Nekko rig with this as well)  and one moving bait rod (Spinnerbait, Chatterbait, Buzzbait, Frog, Cranks, etc.)  The great thing about Ottertail county (like others in Mn), there are a thousand lakes... we will hit 2 or 3 a day.  If we have good conditions (low pressure/moderate wind) we will probably try Musky on Battle Lake.
