I use Thronsen Oil because they only charge you what you put in. It is located on Schulster Dr N.W. which is by UPS kind of behind the Family Fun Center.

I didn't know Throndson refilled tanks. That's good to know since it's close to where I work.

Just for future reference, any place else in north Roch fill them that anyone knows of?

United Rentals on the corner of 37th and 63 has a big banner saying they refill propane. The BP station on Elton Hills drive across from where Zadeos was also fills them.

I have actually started exchanging if I know my tank is bone dry as it's $16 at Wal-Mart and I think Menards is $14.99 or so. Just more convenient to go that route. Think SA gas stations are $18.

I just know that Uhaul, and BP are $15 or so for 20# refills.

Unless you are getting a little one refilled or something bigger than 20#, I guess exchanges are just easier for me.

I use a 4 1/2lb tank for ease of transport. It runs my Buddy heater on low for about 27 hours, which for me is enough for about two weekends of fishing.

The U-Haul location and the Elton Hills BP station are open 7 days a week, the others are weekdays only.

I went to Throndson today and got it filled for 3 bucks. They have great, friendly, fast service and know their stuff. I'll definitely go there again.

      Well I ended up picking up the Cabelas zone specialist on sale for $160 plus I had a coupon in the mail for 20 off A $150 purchase
      Picked up a new chair and a power owl call ( Im pretty sure I can call better with no call than that thing) I had a 200 gift card so I walked out of there with 17.00 credit
      Not bad I say I really liked the blind I sat in them all that were set up with my chair and I grabbed a bow from the archery department. I know people will probably disagree but dare I say from what I seen I like it better than the bullpen even.
      It seems to me to be made of a good material too and I can see it lasting awhile as I will take care of it and I am not going to leave it out for days on end. We will see how it is to hunt out of soon.

      I love my 6 inch K Drill however the blades seem to dull faster to me once I figured it out. Happy as a clam. I do regret selling my power auger. I bought a 8 Eskimo power auger for when I go to Mille lacs. the K drill will work just fine but I liked having the 8 inch hole for eyes up there harder to turn there head in a six inch hole. I know you can drill 2 holes together but for me it just worked. Short story Rick G is right on I love my K drill. Would recommend to any one and it's so much lighter when runnin and gunnin.

        Just wanted to share info on what I know about how those USGS stream gages work.  The stream gaging station will not reflect accurate readings of stage and discharge while ice cover is present.  If you are looking at USGS stream gages you will see a little note in the data table that says "Ice Cover" if this is the case.  They won't be useful until the ice is gone and "Ice Cover" is not showing up next to the readings.  They work on water pressure to estimate the height of water above the gage.  More water flowing under the ice creates more water pressure, so makes the estimated gage height and corresponding estimated discharge go up.  The USGS gage at Manitou should be accurate (no ice cover).  The higher flow will draw the fish in better than low flow.  Another good one to check is the LWCB gages for Rainy Lake and the tailrace below the dam(s).  That will help determine if it's the Forks affecting water levels or just more water coming out of Rainy, which is nice and clear.  Hopefully it won't get muddy!  Maybe see you out there DucksnBucks.  T-Rock-1.

      I saw teal for the first time this morning.  I've had 8 drake mergs hanging around the house for at least a week.  Ringnecks have taken their place for about the past week.  The goldeneyes came and went pretty quick.   I heard snows last night.  Other guys reported the same this morning.  One person reported a flock of Ross' geese last night.  Too bad they don't show a hint of setting down around these parts.   Ive heard woodies but can't say I've actually seen one.  And my wood duck house appears to still be empty.  There was a No Vacancy sign on it by this time last year.   In all, I'm seeing the usual suspects but I have to say the numbers are less than last year.  I hope that's just due to there being more open water all around than last year.
