Cheap Propane Fill-ups/ Top-offs

Recommended Posts

McGurk

It's getting to be the time of year where we are all looking to propane to keep us warm out on the ice. I think we all know where to get an exchange done for grilling season, but getting top-offs by the pound for the upcoming weekend and filling up 11 lb and 5 lb tanks for a non-20 lb price seem to throw most places for a loop.

So, where have you had propane luck and at a good price in the metro area? I'll start by suggesting (thanks to Paul Waldowski) the Uhaul in Eagan on the NE corner of Cedar Ave and 13 off of Nichols Rd. Also, Leroy's on the SW corner of 90th St and Lyndale Ave in Bloomington will fill up a tank (not just do exchanges) but they've always charged a 20 lb price. Any others?

The Clark station (formerly Spur) on Cedar and old Shakopee in Bloomington. They will charge by the pound if you ask.

Bald Eagle Bait ( Marathon Gas) just north of White Bear Lake on Hwy. 61 is cheaper than anything I have found. Great place to buy Bait also and maybe get a tip on the fishing. I would also give Blue Ribbon bait in Oakdale a try.

Vados did mine all of last winter, and they were very reasonable. I also have gone to Lakes Gas off of lyndale in north minneapolis, just south of 42nd street. they have changed things up a bit but are still reasonable in price.

You would think Blue Ribbon Bait in Oakdale would be a good place to fill small tanks. Last year they charged more per pound to fill small tanks with no explanation. I also had the same experience at Mike's LP Gas in Maplewood. Have either changed this year? An East Side source of propane that doesn't take advantage of ice anglers would be nice.

You're not kidding!!! I needed to fill the backup for the Sat turkey frying and went there to get my standard $16.95 fillup after coupon, only to see the price is now $22.95!!! They will also fill a 5 lber up for $12.25 and an 11 lber for $16.52. Next time I'm going to try that welding shop up on 86th East of Nicollet. Bye, Bye, Leroy's!

Conaco on Rum River Drive in princeton was only 8.95 per 20lber up to the end of last season. Now they raised to $12.95 per 20lber. frown.gif

Depends on who is behind counter, but I have had them split a tank price, but not by a pound price.

      Ely area lakes were showing 69-71 today.  That was a warmer than expected surface temp but I doubt it goes very deep.  Very little spawn activity compared to past years for this weekend.

      I like the stretch upriver better but can only drift down that area.  I would wear my arms out traveling up stream!   Hopefully do a drift down soon.

      The stearms in the arrowhead are small very small I would recommend a 6 foot or short rod for most streams as you will be pitching your bait out. They are also over grown with brush wading these streams is a challenge. You will be fishing for mostly brook trout above the first posted boundary FYI it’s normally a large water fall but not always. Also the first week of June there will not be much from the lake to the first posted boundary anyways. Remember there special regs below the first posted boundary and the above the first posted boundary.  If you want to use your fly rod I would hit the small trout lakes in the area. A split shot and small chunk of crawler is my go to bait for Brookies. There are a few streams with some browns and rainbows but very few. If you are fly fishing look at Thompson lake by  devilstrack lake it’s catch and release. Mink lake, kimball lake are also good.

      Growing up in South Dakota I did quite a bit of fishing in the black hills for browns and rainbows, most of that fishing was best accomplished with a long pole and just drifting my bait down the stream if you can read the eddies and slacks in the water you should do fine.  Of course I'm assuming they bite the same up north as they do out west.  It was a kick when I went  back out there 2 years ago and on Sunday morning fished the little 6 ft wide stream running behind the campground, all the other campers were amazed that I would pull out a fish about every 20-30 ft no monsters but plenty of little beauties at 7-10 inches. If the water is clean and the fish are there you just gotta find out what they are eating at that time of year.  Hopefully this helps and if I'm wrong some of the guys with Minnesota experience will pipe up.

      I do a bit of fishing from the coon rapids dam on down to 694 and I usually bring 2 rods because I lose at least one lure to the rocks. Bear that in mind and also realize that there are nice smallies, eyes and cats in that stretch of river. I also had over 3 feet of pike eat my stink bait I had out for channel cats. If I didn't have a circle hook on it would have been a nice pic to share. Good luck and hope to hear of some good luck.

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.

      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!   
    • Bryan P
      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some! 
    • eyeguy 54
      I LOVE SMALLIES !  LOL  I am blessed to live close to so much fun.
