Propane and Cold Weather

5 posts in this topic

Now that we have extremely cold weather here, people are bound to have problems with their heaters and propane tanks. In extremely cold weather, it is important to keep your tanks as full as possible. When the temperature dips, so does the pressure in your tank. When the pressure drops, the liquid won't vaporize. The only way around this is to keep your tanks full so the pressure stays up.

This may be considered an advertisement, but we will work with you to keep your tanks full. Normally we have one charge for a tank fill, but if your tank is 1/2 or 2/3 full, we will work with you on this. I'd rather see your heater work properly and you safe and warm in this cold weather.

Thanks for the great offer to fill the part full tamks and not charge a full fill to fill a 1/2 full tank.

Guys, this is a very generous offer as very few propane suppliers will do this.

Just an example of how great our Fishing Minnesota sponsors are.

The physics are a little more complex then just keeping your tanks full but the importance of this message is correct.

Harvey is certainly correct when it comes to 5 - 20 lb tanks, everywhere fills at a flat rate, this is an real offer from someone dedicated to their customer.

Another tip for those using 1 lb tanks is do not use wal-marts (Ozark Trail) 1 lb tanks in this cold weather. They have cut something else into that fuel that unnoticeable in the summer but doesnt vaporize the at the same rate in the cold. The result is your heater really starts to stink towards the end of the tank. I put those on the grill and buy elsewhere for hard water fishing.

      I have also worried about the quality of the bite...and the absence of perch. At least on the northwest side, anyways, where we almost never mark small perch anymore.  In years past, the best indicator of a soon-to-be big red mark on the Vex was that the small perch vacated the area.  I did see TONS of perch down on the south side this year, but I don't know how the numbers there compared to years past, either.   But yeah, the bite has been excellent for, what, three years now?  We're also catching a decent mix of fish (though of course most are from the 2013 year class).  The only good thing to mention, at least in my experience, is that the fish do look very healthy and fat, very unlike the fish during the "boom years" in the mid-2000's when everything you'd catch would be a skinny 26 incher.

      Bite has been non existent for us this weekend for pike...we fished out of springsteel yesterday one flag. We are out of warroad and no flags yet... We tried as shallow as 4ft, out in 11ft now.
