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.

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.

      We talked to a guy who did very well in 16 FOW by Frontier on Monday. Also heard from a group who did well near Birchdale (not sure on depth).  Our best luck was in 21-25 FOW

      I am planning on kayaking and fishing the Cannon River this season--between Cannon Falls and Hwy 61. I just want to know if the current is generally swift or lazy, i.e., can I paddle BACK to my entrance spot or do you  need to drift downstream and do the two vehicle thing. I understand it may depend on how low or high the river is at any given time, but in general, when things are 'normal', can you paddle back with little difficulty?

      I'll keep it short and simple. The causes of boom and bust on Mille Lacs.    1. Improperly managed slot limits. Too many large fish are allowed in the lake.  2. Netting during spawn. Poor spawning success.    The recent years of high catch rates rates indicate a good 2013 year class but most importantly it is a red flashing light for anyone paying attention. High catch rates are a result of good population AND low or decreasing forage. I put AND in caps because fish won't bite like they have  when they're not hungry.    Cut down that year class class before it's too late. I give it 2 more summers before another crash is inevitable.    Round and round we go, where it stops, nobody knows.

      After using most of the brands you've mentioned, I absolutely love Lunkerhunt frogs...real lifelike, and don't seem to fill up with water as much as the others. They also hold up really well--caught some pike and bowfin without them getting destroyed. I have been using the "Croaker" color exclusively, but definitely picking up some other patterns. They also make a popper frog which is great if you want to make a little more noise.

      I agree with AlwaysFishing--you can come down in line weight for braid if you're just straight up bass fishing. I personally like 30lb if there are a lot of toothy critters around. I use 50-60lb when going after pike and muskie. Have you ever tried fireline for your spinning rod? When jigging, wacky worming, etc., I use 8-12lb fireline exclusively--you can feel EVERYTHING and no stretch is an added bonus.
