Congratulations on your purchase! What type of Otter did you buy? As far as storage goes, I would check out some of the posts on portable modifications for ideas by doing a search. It would be nice if they would stick modifications at the top of this forum as there have been numerous threads about this topic.

Well, I guess you will have to come up with your own personalized mod to satify your needs. Let us know what you come up with, and post some pics if possible. Good Luck!

Did you check out the mods that had the bottles in the PVC tubing and then secured in the tub.

Or the mod that had the bottles in a block of styrafoam.

I thought both of those were good ideas and just wanted to make sure you didn't miss them.

I've been just using a storage bin just for the propane in mine.

I just put my fish towel on the bottom of a 5 gallon pail and my 1#ers in it on top of that then another fish towel stuffed in between them. I carry my 11#er in a milk crate.

I also liked the foam idea and will be using that in my house this year since I am using 1lbers for my heater due to space issues. I believe he just got a piece of foam that was an inch or 2 thick then cut holes down halfway into the foam to hold the tanks upright.

Cheap and light...

WTN4ICE, is that black strip tape or a piece of metal? I like the design.

I used plastic rain gutter to make a shelf or tray along 2 sides of 1 of my portables and a;ong 3 sides of my other portable. The 1 lb tanks ride very nicely in those rain gutter trays.

Both my buddy & big buddy heaters have a case they sit in with two pouches on the sides to hold extra 1# tanks. I always install my 1#s on the heater before I head out (unless I am using an external tank), then put two extra's in the poutches for my lantern and spares.

The case for the regular buddy came with the unit in the box. The Big buddy case, i purchased at Cabelas. Great for providing extra protection, and keeping dust from collectin when in storage.

I have been using a milk crate for years. Nine of them fit vertically perfectly. If I'm going to be gone any longer, three more fit on top, on their side. No real need to strap them in, they stay right in the crate. The crate is open frame so it doesn't weigh much. Plus if you ARE strapping things in your tub, the open frame of the crate is a great thing to strap to. Works excellent. I store them year round in the crate(s), they stack well.

    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
