I use to have em refilled by glo-gas here in Rome and now with higher cost for propane I'll just be buying store bought canisters this season. I loved it when I could get them refilled for $1 a piece, oh well. Call you when I get home Todd have fun doing your truck brakes today.

I have the item your talking about. I've never used it so you're welcome to it. Heard there are some safety issues to be aware of, found it on another page a year or so ago. I can give you a run down if you'd like. My cousin uses his all the time, no problems. don't refill them more than once or twice though. Let me know if you want it. Tim has my #s

Todd - Not worth the hassle im my mind. Nothing worse than a stinky canister in the trap or car, plus the danger it might pose. You can usually find tanks 2 for 5 bucks. Or just toughen up like Tank, he's never fished with a heater. This one older guy we fish with once in a while - I have never even seen him put on gloves!

Todd everyone is right about refilling them not worth it plus dangerous. I just put the empties in with the recyclables smile Wally world has tanks for under $3 each I only use Coleman as i found the cheaper brands like Ozark trail seem to clog up my heaters (must be dirty propane?)

Hey I just remebered Rosa's sister is dating a guy who wotks for a fuel delivery company. They sell about every type of gas there is... Let me see if they handle something small as new one pounders. It's worth checking anways. Price of propane was two bottles for $3 and now it's doubled over the last year, eventually you would think with the gas price drop you'd figure those prices on 1 lb'ers would come down as well.

Timmy, don't forget the magic of the phone call to the mfgs. Get me a name and I'll see what we can get them for. Remember Bad Dog and Atom a few years back? lol

I remember the bad dog stuff Ray well. I also remember those stacked propeller jigs you got. Caught quite a few gills with those. I did manage a nice walleye on one of the bad dog jigging spoons as well.

Makes me smile! I still have a mess of them! Those guys did right by us!! All for a phone call. lol I couldn't get him or the guy from Atom's off the phone! Couldn't believe little ole' CNY wanted their stuff. I've found most places like to talk to and hep out a little guy. Especially when I tell them it's our group that's interested, we're gonna use the [PoorWordUsage] out of them and we'll tell everyone about them. I've got to order some Maki plastics. You should tell him we can get him into Susser's in Albany. He's a small wholesaler that covers a good territory. Exposure!! Glad to help him out if he'd like.

Heck Tim, for you guys, I'll call and schmooze anyone! lol I'll call you this week. Need your opinion on a new shack and selling my old trap.

I pick up all those empties that i find laying around on the ice in the morning when i get there. Then, at the end of the day, i wait until the night fisherman get there, and come out on the ice. As I'm leaving, i just throw them in the backs of their trucks! They don't care, they just leave me more to pick up the next day....

I have never had a problem refilling them, not that your going to save hundreds by doing it but they are easy and fast to refill with an attachment. There is a little science involved to it...put the 20 lb. cylinder in the deep freeze and get it cold.

    • Seen on the channel 5 news the other night, plans to remove a dam in River Falls. They didn't specify which dam, or if it would be both dams. The movement is gaining popularity, especially with residents. And more input meetings will be planned. However, if the project is ok'd, it doesn't sound like it will be in the near future. I'm all for the dam removal! Both of them!
    • Hey Dave, I am sorry to hear that. If you need anything you have my number.  Send me a PM or text and let me know whats going on. Recurring infection? Low blood supply?     
    • Yes. But he has a great plan to utilize the excess rail capacity in the country by relocating those who disagree with him. It's gonna be a real gas. 
    • 100% A-OK is how that's working out, but I'm not surprised by the continued confusion. Even beside Texas vs Johnson, the idea of stripping citizenship from people hasn't stood up in court.
    • You must have been on some sh*tty ice for it to do that... Love my heavy spud bar, if it doesn't go through in a couple wacks I feel pretty darn confident in stepping...Spud bar,picks,pfd,rope, common sense all ya need
    • Protecting the rights of the id-oits, for the purpose of teaching others how not to be an id-iot is paramount. It goes both ways.........
    • What? You don't like the 1st amendment?
    • there is a seat belt law, why not have a ice picks law? if you are caught out ice fishing before the 1st of the year without picks, you get a "stupid" ticket.
    • So burning a Quran, or pouring bacon grease on it must be protected as well?  And flying the Stars and Bars?  How is that working out?
