Check with your garbage people. Some will take them in recycling if you pull the valve, otherwise most will say just toss them in your regular garbage.

Another option is to refill and reuse them.

How much does something like that run? i go through quite a bit of 1lb tanks in the winter and refilling them would be nice.

The adapters are cheap. Like WFW said...go to your local fleet store. You can fill them off your 20lb tanks.

Handy for me, I use alot of 1lbers on my camping stove, and save the environment a bit by not throwing away canisters.

Not trying to highjack your post here, Thanks Luckycrank!!! It always amazes me at how much garbage people leave on the lake, it's like the perms are gone for the year but their spirit lives on.

As far as the 1lbers I know there was a post about a year ago on this very topic in the Ice fishing forumn, seems to recall that some said there is a safety issue with that idea. I'm not sure on the safety thing I have never looked to in depth into it, might want to search it out.

If i remember right i think it was said that it is illegal to transport refilled 1# tanks.

A-body

Fleet Farm has them for 15.95. They had a couple hundred when I was there a few weeks ago. You screw it in the big tank, screw on the small tank, turn upside down, open big tank for one minute, close big tank, done.

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Nice fish guys. Royce doesn't look like you took the day off 
    • IceHawk
      Great Idea Rick 
    • Borch
      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.
    • Tom Sawyer
      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
