5 gal. propane tank

5 posts in this topic

I just bought the 5 gal. tank for my heater and the 5 ft hose so I don't need all those 1 gal tanks and the pain that comes with them. Do I need to buy a fuel filter to go with this?

It is highly recommended. I had a buddy use a 20#er on his buddy heater and he did not use the filter and it got plugged up. Cheap insurance.

I have used this set up for over 20 years and have never had a problem.

My 2 cents worth, However I am sure a filter would not hurt though.

What heater? Mr heater reccomends using the filter with the big and little buddy. No filter is necessary if you have the heater cooker.

I've never used a filter with propane even with 100s hooked to Hall Burner that my BIL made in his shop.

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.
