      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 .

How much does it roughly cost to fill a 100 lber + a couple other ???

Recommended Posts

Just curious if anyone has filled one lately and if so how much did you pay this year? I have been contemplating on going with a 100lber for less refilling reasons throughout the season, if you fill a 100 lber vs say a 20,40lber is it cheaper per pound then?

I agree I pay just a bit less that 81 cents @ pound. But I buy from a guy that only sells propane and propane appliances.. And he is not Hank Hill LOL

I have a wood stove in my fish house... It cost me $3.17 in gas for the chainsaw and 3 hours of work, logging, splitting and stacking to heat my fish house for the entire winter season.

This is in Brookings, SD. I filled a 100# tank for work two weeks ago for 50 bucks at our local coop. That didn't include tax as a work for the city.

Called MidCountry Co-op in Cologne the other day, here were their prices..

20# $16.95

30# $21.95

40# $21.95

100# $54.95

Waconia Farm Supply was quite a bit higher. I cant remember the exact prices, but I think when I filled up a couple tanks, the 20# was $18.95 and 30# was $24.95.

In 1999 built my fish wheeled house with a wood burning stove. In 2000 yanked it out and put in an Empire furnace, stove with oven, and two propane lights. Best grand I've ever spent. Less time dealing with starting a fire and more time to fish.

Propane has been comming down with the price of gas and diesel lately. I know several people who heat there homes with LP who pre-bought this Summer and now the price is quite a bit lower.

My buddy and I debated that for a long time... And then went wood...

The final selling point was that once the stove paid for itself (Which it has) I'm basically heating for free... I mean I cut down 1 tree, and then scrap wood from my wood shop and it heats us for an entire winter...

My other friend who has a propane heater went through 250 pounds of propane last winter, to the tune of about $230...

That's an extra $230 going to help buy an H20... Or $230 going into a college fund... Or an extra truck payment.

As for time spent starting a stove, and loading wood... In grand total... It's not much different than the time lost when that low tank peters out on pressure when it's 2:00 am and -20 outside. Or that regulator buys the farm for some reason.

    • For gills when using live bait st croix spring bobber rods. for gills and crappie when using plastics I use the snitch. for perch and eyes croxton pond rods in light to med/light   I have about 36 ice set ups but I getting rid    Of some  
    • I love my custom Adam Bricker rods.  The guy just makes rods that look, feel, and preform well. Plus he has some really great options like a rod butt that pops out the back with a fish hook remover. You can also get the option of being able to change out blanks if you want. Which comes in handy if a guy goes from panfishing to walleyes. Plus he stands behind his work. The guy is an artist when it comes to building rods not only with looks, but preformance & function. Nothing else comes close to what he builds. With that being said, I do consider them a luxury item.   I have a slight addiction and have about 50 open water rods and 40 ice fishing rods, that range from cheap to expensive.  rl_sd pretty much said it all though. For $30 or less a guy can get a solid ice rod combo that preforms just fine. One of my favorite ice rods is a south bend Rod and reel combo I picked up for $25. It has an 8 ball Bering reel and a ML Rod that works well for perch and walleye.
